My name is Morgan Palyo. I am a freshman at University of Wyoming. I have been Raising and showing Sheep for 10 Years. I am very excited about my 2017 crop of Lambs. This year was my biggest crop of lambs and I think my best. I have had so much fun raising sheep and I have learned a lot through 4H and FFA. I feel my future is going to be positive because of my involvement in these great organizations. I plan to participate in 4H and FFA for one more year and I know I will miss it a lot, but I also know that I have learned that hard work pays off. I will be showing in the Breeding Sheep and Market Lamb Classes at the fair this year. All of my sheep are home raised in Routt County.
See you at the 2017 Routt County Fair.
Hi, my name is Jess Diehl and I'm 15 years old. I have been in 4-H for 5 years, starting off raising market pigs, and I'm now on my second year of raising market lambs. The Routt County Fair is my favorite time of the year, and I am very excited to be showing my two lambs, Jinx and Balloo, as well as representing the fair as the 2017 Routt County Fair Queen.
I would like to thank the Ski Town Rotary Club for buying my 2016 market lamb, and I hope to see you all at the Jr. Livestock Sale!
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!
