We are so proud of all of these youth for their hard work in their livestock projects this year. These programs would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our 4-H volunteers, so we would like to say a BIG thank you to all of our 4-H volunteers. A special shout out to our Beef Club volunteers Lynn Austin, Barry Austin, April McCurry and Adam McCurry, and Livestock Club volunteer Amber Hammond for the hard work and dedication they put in to teaching these youth skills they will use for the rest of their lives!
