Hi my name is Jason Heid. This is my 3rd year in 4-H and I am a member of the Elk River Wranglers 4-H Club. I have learned so much from 4-H and look forward to my animal projects each year. I raise goats, turkeys, and chickens. I love getting chicks in the spring and get excited for my goats to have their babies! My market projects this year are market goats and market turkeys. I am excited to show my market goats; Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, my breeding goats; Lois Lane, Harleigh Quinn, and Peaches, and my market turkeys; Lex and Luther. I have worked very hard this summer with my projects and I can’t wait for Fair! I hope to see you at the Routt County Fair.
Thank you to Rooney’s Round Mountain Ranch for buying my 2016 BBQ Special Market Turkeys and to Moe’s Original BBQ for buying my 2016 Market Goat.
Hi! My name is Justin Heid and this is my 6th year in 4-H. I am a member of the Elk River Wranglers 4-H Club. I show goats, turkeys, and chickens. 4-H has taught me so much about raising quality animals and it has given me confidence in other aspects of my life. My favorite part about my animal projects is getting to know each animal’s personality and having baby goats born in the spring. My market projects this year are market goats and market turkeys. I am looking forward to the Routt County Fair and have worked very hard this summer with my animals and am excited to show them! Hope to see you there!
Thank you to Steamboat Powersports and Schrader Propane for buying my 2016 Reserve Grand Champion BBQ Special Turkeys and to Del’s Triangle 3 Ranch for buying my 2016 Market Goat.
Hello my name is Rachel Rolando. I am an independent 4-H member. I have been involved in 4-H since I was ten years old. In the past years I have taken dog, horse, horse breeding, market swine, livestock judging, vet science, market goat, breeding goat and new this year breeding sheep and market lamb. My favorite project hands down has to be goats. I have a small herd of show goats. Nothing has taught me more in the 17 years that I've been alive than raising livestock. There's terrible days and then there's great days!
I am looking forward to this year's Routt County Fair and hope to see everyone there!!!
I want to thank Bear Creek Animal Hospital and Master Petroleum for purchasing my market goat in 2016.
My name is Amber Elliott and I am 17 years old. I am a part of the Fairplay 4-H club and this is my ninth year in 4-H. This fall at the Routt County Fair I will be showing Market Goat, Breeding Goat, Dairy Goat, as well as showing my horse Jake. I love being a part 4-H and am so thankful for all that it has taught me including hard work, responsibility, and leadership skills.
Thank you The Millard Family for buying my 2016 Market Goat and being such great supporters of 4-H.
I hope to see you all at the 103rd Annual Routt County Fair!
Hi! My name is Alex Colby and this is my 6th year in 4-h. This year I will be a freshman at SoRoCo high school. 4-H has taught me many important life skills that I will need later. My projects this year are market goats and shooting sports. This will be my third year doing market goats and my sixth year doing shooting sports! I have been working very hard to get my market goats ready for the fair and I am looking forward to it. Can’t wait to see you there!
Thank you to Brita Horn Routt County Treasurer for buying my 2016 market goat.
Hello, my name is Eli Moon. I’ve been doing 4-H for 2 years and its one of my favorite parts of the year. I show market goats, horses, and dairy goats. My market goat, Hurin, is one of the funniest animals I’ve ever met. Ranching has always been a big part of my life, but 4-H added a whole aspect to the ranching I was used to. 4-H has taught me and led me and made me a better person.
I will be selling my market goat at the Jr. Livestock sale and I hope to see you there.
Hey! My name is Emily Rossi, and this is my first year in 4-H! I am a member of the Flat Top 4-H Club, and I show pigs, goats, and lambs. My market projects this year are market swine, market goats, and market lambs. I waited a long time to be able to show in 4-H and am so excited to finally be able to show pigs! I have enjoyed being able to bond with my animals. I look forward to the 2017 Routt County Fair, and hope you will stop by to meet my animals and me!
Hey! My name is Kayla Rossi, and this is my fifth year in 4-H. I am a member of the Flat Top 4-H Club, and I show beef, sheep, and goats. My market projects this year are market steer, market goat, and market lamb. This is my first year showing in the market steer project, and my fifth year showing market goats and market lambs. The one thing that I love about doing my market animal projects is getting to know my animals’ personalities each year because they are all different and special. The leadership skills gained in 4-H is also pretty awesome!
Thank you to Steamboat Meat & Seafood Co. for purchasing my 2016 Reserve Grand Champion Market Lamb and Master Petroleum Co. for buying my 2016 Grand Champion Market Goat. I look forward to the 2017 Routt County Fair and hope to see you there! I hope you will stop by to meet my animals and say hello!
