My name is Brayden Cushing Baker, I am part of the Ranch House 4H club. I have been showing steers for 2 years. This year I have a cute little steer who loves to run and play with me. His name is Bullet. 4H is fun for me and I love my steers, but next year may try a pig instead. I want to try something different.
Thank you to Wells Fargo Bank of Steamboat for buying my 2016 market steer.
Thanks also to my sister for helping with my steer.
This year is my second year of 4H and I am part of Ranch House 4H club. I am taking two steers this year, Diesel and Ammo.
I love working on a ranch, especially helping put up hay.
Thank you to Jocko and Colleen Camilletti for buying my 2016 market steer!

Hello, I am Lexi Weber. I am the president of the Ranch House 4-H Club, and this is my 7th year in 4-H. My projects this year are market swine and breeding beef. This year I have one Hampshire and one Yorkshire hog. Their names are "Thing 1" and "Thing 2." They will be excellent on your dinner table. My yearling heifer's name is "BMW." I raised her from a calf out of my first cow, and I am very proud of her.
I would like to thank everyone who supports me and the Routt County Fair. A special thank you to Lee Meyring, DMV, and Will Montieth for all of their help with my heifer, also to my last year's buyer, Pioneer Materials.
Good luck to everyone this year! Thank you, Lexi
Hi my name is Kristen Griffith this is my fifth year in 4-H but my first time showing in Routt County with the High Point 4-H club. I will be going into the 7th grade at the Steamboat Springs Middle School. My favorite hobby is showing my 4-H animals. My projects this year include two market steers and two market pigs. I named my steers Rocky and Otis they are both very docile, loving, and enjoy their daily baths. My pigs names are Captain and Sarge they both love to eat and go on nightly walks. My favorite part about the summer months is taking my animals to jackpots and clipping clinics. My older sister and I are working towards starting our own club calf herd and I am working toward raising my own show pigs.
I am so excited for the Routt County fair and meeting all the new people. I hope to see you there!!!
Hi, my name is Sophie Diehl, and I am 13 years old. I am going in to 8th grade at the Steamboat Springs Middle School. This is my 5th year in 4-H. This year I am showing and selling my market lamb, Chili Pepper, showing my pet rabbit, LeMatt, and I also participated in cooking as well as livestock judging.
Thank you so much to Frank Camilletti for buying my 2016 market lamb.
I hope you will come support all of 4-H at the annual county fair!
Hi, my name is Tim Bedell. I am 11 years old and this is my third year doing 4-H. My steer’s name this year is Big Boy. Even though he’s very big he is very friendly and licks anything he can.
I picked him from my Dad’s calves last year because he had a rectangular build and a square back end. On my feeding plan, I think he will produce excellent steaks.
I like to play baseball, wrestle, and shoot grouse with my Grandpa.
I’d like to specially thank Rudi and Jennifer Fronk, Jim and Cynthia DeFrancia, and Don and Teresa VanOrden for buying Dozer last year!
Please stop by to meet me and Big Boy, I hope to see you all at the fairgrounds!

I have two big and fluffy steers this year, Prime-Time and Show-Time. They are Maine Anjou cattle and they love to eat. I take them on long walks morning and night to insure good exercise and health. I also give them a daily baths to cool them off and keep them clean.
I would like to thank my previous buyer of four years, Carl's Tavern. I wouldn't have had any success with my steers in the past if it weren't for my gracious buyer, my family and friends.
Thank you all.
