Budding showmen

“So what is your calf’s name?” asked Ashley Miller, 2017 Sheboygan County Fairest of the Fair.

“I named her Oreo!” was the response from a nervous Farmerbud.

“Why did you name her Oreo?” asked Miller.

“I don’t know. I think my Mom liked that name.”

The questions and answers at the 2017 Farmerbud Showmanship Event brought the crowd to bouts of laughter. The handlers ranged from age 4 to 8 and were divided into three classes and there is no way of knowing what the answers will be.

The Farmerbud Showmanship event is designed to get the youth into a comfortable state so, should they decide to show animals when they are older, they will feel at ease both with the animal and being in the ring with other participants.

The Sheboygan County Junior Holstein Association strives to increase knowledge and provide opportunities for more involvement through a registered Holstein project.

“Ice cream!” was the unanimous response and that was appropriate for the day because each participant received a coupon for one free ice cream cone.
