By Lance Moore August 09, 2019 985

Saturday evening saw the 4H fair bucket calf and dairy contests.

Participants of the contests were judged based on their animal's stance, look, and the participants' knowledge about their animal.

Drew Ritchie from the Happy Harvesters 4h club received grand champion status in his age range of 7-8 in the bucket calf contest. Ritchie talks a little about what he would do to train his calf for the event.


On the dairy side of the contest, Isaac Miller of the Chamness 4h club won grand champion in junior showmanship and had the champion doe. Miller gives some insight into the amount of prep work needed just before the show starts.
