Fair Project Friday

FAIR PROJECT FRIDAY

Gary Kumrow has been showing at the Sheboygan County Fair Park since he was 5 years old and a member in the 4-H Cloverbud program. He has been involved for 13 years now and has participated with Poultry, Rabbits, Crops, Wood Working, Vegetables, and Lego projects. He first joined 4-H because his friends were in it, but stayed with it because of the opportunities it gave him. “4-H and showing teaches you a lot,” he said. “It teaches you how to talk to others and be motivated.” Gary is a member of the Scott Pioneers 4-H Club and his Mom is now a general leader for the club, too. He joined the Random Lake FFA and has been in that program since his freshman year.


When it comes to the fair season, Gary’s favorite projects are the poultry and rabbit divisions. “It’s fun to see people enjoy the birds and animals when they walk through the exhibit area,” he said. Gary usually gets 8 young turkeys in March and 4 ducks in April or May. He starts working with them as soon as they come, so they get used to being handled. The Bronze, White and Bourbon Red turkey breeds he works with, are a good grouping with his Pekin ducks. At the fair, they mist the birds in the cages and wipe them down to keep them comfortable and clean. He has 4 Crème d'Argent rabbits that are raised year-round. He is always grooming them to keep them show-ready. As part of the preparations to get ready for show season, they put radios by the animals so they get used to the noise at the fair.

Gary looks forward to seeing all the people that come to the fair. “I get to see a lot of people there,” he said. “Showing my animals and seeing my friends is always fun. I show on Thursday and Friday and there is also a Blue Ribbon Small Animal Auction where people can bid on the turkeys, ducks and rabbits.”

Good luck to Gary with his projects at the Sheboygan County Fair!

    In utero, the calf relies solely on the cow for nutrition, immunity, and overall protection.  As producers, you need to ensure that the cow is getting all of the proper vitamins, minerals, and all nutrition so that the calf is not compromised when it hits the ground.
