Gordon County Well Represented at 4-H Day at the Atlanta History Center
Smith, a 10th grader at Calhoun High, brought his Hereford heifer Bianca and discussed the importance of beef and its byproducts to consumers. Hunter Petty, an 8th grader at Red Bud Middle, brought several Boer goats and talked about showing livestock, including a demonstration of how to use show equipment and how to handle your animals in the show ring. He set up a display board with information on different breeds of goats and questions asked by judges at shows, and displayed some of his ribbons as well as a slide show of pictures from last year’s show season.
