Hi! My name is Leah Allen, and I am 13 years old. This is my 5th year in 4-H, and I will be an 8th grader at the Steamboat Springs Middle School. This year I have a Market Steer named John Wayne. He is a nice structured Charolais steer, with a great temperament and personality. John Wayne loves attention, and I give him lots of it every day. He was born on our family ranch, and I had my eye on him since he was born because his mom was such a good looking cow and great mama.
In 4-H, I also enjoy Livestock Judging because I am learning so much about animals, public speaking more confidently, and I meet lots of new people wherever we go! In school, I love math and science (and think I want to be a Meat Scientist when I grow up), and I play volleyball.
Hope to see you at the fair!
