My name is Grace George, and I am 12 years old. This is my 4th year in 4-H, and I am part of the High Point 4-H Club. This year I’m showing market rabbits, show rabbits, utility goat, and dairy goat. I have been raising rabbits for 4 years and have lots of experience with them. I am selling market rabbits for the first time this year. I will be selling a pen of 3 Silver Fox rabbits which are best known for their meat and fur. I chose to breed and sell Silver Fox rabbits because they are a critically endangered American meat and fur breed that I want to help protect. They are also very friendly, easy to breed, and delicious. I hope you can come to Fair and the livestock auction and meet me!
Hi, my name is Jess Diehl. I’m 17 years old and I’m going to be a senior at the Steamboat Springs High School. I’ve been a part of the High Point 4-H Club and I’ve been in the program for the past 7 years. This year, I’ve been raising two market lambs named Bea and Bella, as well as showing rabbits and Livestock Judging. I hope to see you at the 105th Routt County Fair!
A big thanks to Master Petroleum and Schrader Propane for buying my 2018 market lamb, Mr. Blue.
