Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Brooke Becker

The San Fran­cisco Val­ley 4-H mem­bers have been busy for the past few months pre­par­ing for the Fair which was Au­gust 22 to 25. An up­date on the SFV 4-H at the Fair and how our mem­bers placed will be in the next is­sue.

On July 27, Clay­ton Jump, Jake Jump, and Lori Robert­son pre­sented their show an­i­mals to some of the San Fran­cisco Val­ley 4-H mem­bers as part of the club’s an­nual Project Tour. Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion of the show an­i­mals, the at­tend­ing mem­bers gath­ered at the McKeen's resi- dence for lunch and swim­ming.

On July 28, a Live­stock Jack­pot was held in Re­serve. Lambs, pigs, and goats were shown. Lori Robert­son, show­ing a meat goat, won sec­ond in her class and also achieved first place in Se­nior Mar­ket Goat Show­man­ship. Lori also showed one of Brooke Becker's mar­ket lambs, as both of her lambs were placed in the same weight class. Corbin Becker showed mar­ket swine, won third in his class and Ju­nior Pig Show­man­ship. Kayla Man­ning also com­peted in the mar­ket swine class, and won first in her class as well as Grand Cham­pion over­all, and won Se­nior Pig Show­man­ship. Brooke Becker showed mar­ket lambs, won Grand Cham­pion, Re­serve Grand Cham­pion, and Se­nior Mar­ket Lamb Show­man­ship. Brooke also showed one of Corbin's pigs, as there was only one class of mar­ket swine at the Jack­pot.

Satur­day Au­gust 11, was the day of the fair­grounds clean-up. Corbin Becker, Brooke Becker, Alexan­dra Hem­mer, Carly Par­nell, Colton Par­nell, Dal­lon Par­nell, and their fam­i­lies all helped clean up the fair­grounds.

On Au­gust 14, the San Fran­cisco Val­ley 4-H Club held their eighth meet­ing for the year of 2018. This meet­ing was also the last meet­ing be­fore the Fair. The mem­bers gave an up­date on their projects. We dis­cussed old and new busi­ness alike. Kayla Man­ning and Brooke Becker both gave a re­port on the Jack­pot. We dis­cussed the time, the food, and the bev­er­ages we would sell at the con­ces­sion at the Fair.
