The Yellowstone County 4-H Junior Livestock sale is August 18, and KGHL will broadcast live from the event. Last year the station talked to as many of the 4-H members as they could, talking about the work that went into raising these animals.
The sale is the culmination of hard work on the part of 4-H members and there families and KGHL wants to recognize their success. Nick Tyler, Russell Nemetz, Taylor Brown, and Karen Gallagher will be live from the sale beginning at 11am on the 18th. You'll hear the stories of their time investment and efforts in bringing these animals from start to market.
In addition to regular project meetings and field days, they have invested hundreds of hours with daily feeding, cleaning and handling of the project animals, in order to prepare them for the annual fair. At the fair, animals are judged by professional livestock evaluators, and those that meet established market quality standards will be auctioned at the Junior Livestock Auction.
These youth are the leaders of tomorrow. The 4-H programs are designed to teach their members valuable leadership skills that will benefit them in any career they may choose. The animal projects teach them the meaning of responsibility, hard work and the basics of building and running a small business.
One of the goals of these projects is to make a profit. KGHL encourages everyone to come to the auction and make a purchase. It will help our young people meet their goals and reward them for all of their hard work and commitment to becoming the leaders of tomorrow
