Hi my name is Alyvia Cox. I am 10 years old and this is my first year in 4H. My projects this year are market turkeys and beginning sewing. I have loved being a part of Handy Lads and Lassies club. I also love to serve in this beautiful county and I can't wait for the fair.
Thank you all for your support.
Howdy, I’m Jet! I live on a ranch with my buddy Jazz. He looks just like me except he has a white face but no one is perfect. The kid in the picture with me takes care of us, his name is Teagan Herold and he’s 11 yrs. old. He’s handy to have around because he scratches us and feeds us and washes us and stuff. Good thing we taught him about responsibility, hard work and doing what is right. We had to teach him about stuff like that because he also has pigs and rabbits. His pigs make a lot of noise and it’s easy to tell when he feeds them. His rabbits are very quiet, we never hear them. I like the quiet neighbors.
Teagan sometimes tells us stories about how much fun he has with the Handy Lads and Lassies 4-H club and shooting archery and .22 rifle in 4-H shooting sports. He never takes us to practice though, he says “it’s only for people, not for steers.” We like to have fun too! Jazz and I are excited to go to the fair where all the fun and friends are. Hope to see you there, too!
Thank you Dr. Lee Meyring and Steamboat Veterinary Hospital for buying my 2016 market pig and Bill Gay for buying my 2016 rabbit meat pen at the Junior Livestock Sale last year. It is all the people who support us that make our livestock projects possible. - Teagan
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.
Hi, My name is Hallie Myhre and this is my 9th year in 4H. I graduated from Steamboat Springs High School and will be attending Casper Community College this fall to compete on the livestock judging team! The 4H program has taught me priceless skills and has directed me into my next chapter of life!
This year for my market projects I will be showing lambs and chickens. I have completed both of these projects for consecutive years and have gained knowledge and experience. I am excited to show my lambs; Bo and Peep and my meat birds; Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato! I have been working hard with my lambs and chickens and I am looking forward to fair this year! Hope to see you there!
Special thanks to Yampa Vally Electric for buying my 2016 Market Lamb and Murdochs in Craig for buying my 2016 Market Birds!
