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 Shaelynn Estes. I am 11 years old and member of the Ranch House 4-H Club.
This is my first year doing 4-H. I will be showing 2 pigs at fair and I also did a project in cake decorating. I have learned a lot this year, but mostly how much work taking care of animals can be. My pigs have taught me to have patience. I am excited to take them to fair and do the best I can do.
