When asked, Andrew said he is excited for the weekend.

“This year I raised a 10th market steer out of my years of being in 4-H. I will be showing my steer on Saturday.”

Over the weekend Andrew will keep busy helping the other participants with their animals.

“If people come down they will see turkeys, pigs, rabbits, sheep, steer, horses – just about everything. Today we have all the weigh-ins, then we have a judging rally.”

The public is invited to come down and meet the participants and see the animals they have raised and the various projects they have created as individuals and as clubs.
