This pic is of my daughter, Bay, and her ewe lamb that we just showed at our county spring show. The ewe was one that we raised, and it was reserve-champion cross and best county-bred. Our county has a spring and fall show that is well attended by all species of animals. Bay also was champion showman. Anna, also pictured with the judge, placed her two sheep, and Autumns lamb was sick and couldn’t be shown. Next week will be OYE, and hopefully we will be ready for it.

Next is a pic of all the showmanship winners at the county show. A lot of numerical figures get tossed around about the number-one agriculture commodity in our state. I firmly believe that farm children are by far the greatest product of agriculture. I believe there is no other means of instilling character, discipline, tenacity, work ethic, love, hope, faith and whatever else there is to being a productive member of society. We are richly blessed with a lifestyle that allows for us to do things daily as a family.
