They have been amazing to have even with everything going around. 4-H has been a blast even with all the restrictions and I have had a lot of fun with all my animals. I will be selling my steer at this year’s virtual auction on Aug. 10 at 6:30 p.m.Happy bidding and stay safe.

Tel Lytton

Hi! My name is Tel Lytton, in lot #88.

I am 11 years old and this is my third year in 4-H as a junior and I am in the Highland 4-H Club. This year my projects are beef and poultry.

This year I am raising a beautiful orlopp bronze turkey named Gobbler McStuffin’. He likes to go for walks in the yard during the day and rest on the top perch at night, in the turkey house.

I like 4-H because I get to see lots of my friends and learn lots about animals and how to raise them. I enjoy all the animals at show and sale and seeing everyone from different clubs.

This year is a little different, however Gobbler McStuffin’ will still be sold at the 4-H action on Aug. 10. Thank you for taking the time to check out the online sale!
