The OCBA started the contest in 1994 to award a Cheviot starter flock to an Ohio youth up to 17 years of age. The purpose of the award is to introduce the youth to the enjoyment of raising and owning a purebred Cheviot sheep, as well as encouraging the growth of new Cheviot breeders in Ohio.
The contest winner will receive the following: a one-year membership in the OCBA, one bred ewe the first year, one ram the second year and in the third year the youth will donate a lamb to continue the award.
The application deadline is September 30th. For an application and contest rules please contact the Ohio Cheviot Breeders Association Starter Flock Committee Chairperson, Tabitha Weisend, at 740-459-9751 or email@example.com.
Back for it’s second year, A Day in the Ring adds cattle to the show! A Day in the Ring was held on Thursday, July 25, in the Gibbons Arena. The show was a special event in partnership with the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Clermont County Junior Fair youth were partnered with an individual from the Board of Developmental Disabilities to educate them about their project and teach them how to show a goat or cow. Participants then exhibited their animal in a non-competitive show. The goal of A Day in the Ring is to allow individuals with special needs the opportunity to achieve success in the show ring and for 4-H members to utilize their animal projects to mentor others.
After the show, contestants and their mentors enjoyed lunch together, and a few were featured in a live broadcast with 99.5FM The Edge!
There are free meals available for children 18 years and younger throughout the summer months, CLICK HERE to find locations.
We invite all club members and their families to attend the 4-H Style Revue and Winners’ Circle!
The 4-H Style Revue will be held on Saturday, July 20, at 1:00 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Building. The Winners’ Circle ceremony will be held immediately following the 4-H Style Revue at approximately 2:00 p.m. Style Review and Winners’ Circle recognize members who completed a general project and participated in General Project Judging. We will announce placings, as well as, state fair delegates.
Delegates learn about their leadership style by studying the leadership styles of historical figures. Lacie and Luke will develop a better understanding of their own strengths and challenges as leaders, how to address their challenges and how to work effectively with others who have different styles.
Thank you Clermont County 4-H Committee for sponsoring these #TrueLeaders.
