At the Expo

IMG_20150724_141152918The Kentucky Department of Agriculture hosted an expo to teach the 4-hers and FFA youth more about livestock judging. This event was held in Bowling Green, so some of the girls and I made a day of it. It was the first time Charlotte had attended one of these events so her head was crammed full of information!IMG_20150724_142545052 She had to learn cuts of meat, genetics of animals, breed classes, livestock equipment. The kids took a test and then judged 8 different classes of animals. The test was fun for the kids who’ve never had to “fill in the circles” of a scantron test before.IMG_20150724_101732306_HDR We went with friends of ours who share a passion for raising and showing animals. We met so many nice people there who were eager to share information and network about ideas. All the kids won medals for various placings in livestock judging. Some won more than one. It was a fantastic opportunity for learning more about raising and caring for animals. IMG_20150724_185348246
