2020 Beef for sale

Daisy Trowbridge – Hi, my name is Daisy Trowbridge. I have been in 4-H for 8 years and I am also a member of the NY Jr. Beef Producers Association where I have been on the Board for the past two years. I have also participated in many shows and sales. I enrolled in the 4-H Market Livestock project because my grandfather, Phil Trowbridge, encouraged me to be a part of this great program. I also wanted something fun to do in the summer. I have learned how to market animals and go out and talk to prospective buyers through this project. With this knowledge I have learned how to be a better marketer and be more involved with livestock. This is why I am very thankful to have this opportunity to be a part of 4-H.

Jordin Radley – Hi, my name is Jordin Radley. I’ve been a member of 4-H for 4 years. I’m in the NY Jr. Beef Producers Association and have participated in many sales plus have shown multiple species of animals. I joined 4-H because I was very interested in farm animals and wanted them in my own life. In 4-H I have learned how to take on more responsibilities and how to manage my time. I will take this knowledge on with me throughout my life and will use it to help me deal with any obstacles I might face. Overall 4-H has taught me so much and has been a great impact on my everyday life.

Patrick Stark – Hi, I am Patrick Stark. I am 15 years old and live in Ghent, NY on my family’s farm. I have been a 4-H member for 8 years. I enjoy raising and showing my livestock animals. I enrolled in 4-H because I enjoy learning and working with the animals. Working and raising the steers, heifers, and cows are my favorite. I was very disappointed that I could now show my cow-calf pairs at the Chatham Fair or any other shows we usually attend. I have a beautiful Hereford heifer and bull calf that were born this spring through AI breeding right here on our farm. I have learned a lot in 4-H. First, I have learned how to feed animals properly and show them. I have also learned about fitting them. Next, with the help of my friend Robert, Mr. Trowbridge and my mom, we have started AI breeding and trying to improve our Hereford head of show cattle. It is always exciting to see the new calves in the spring. I also like raising and working with the lambs because they can sometimes be challenging in the ring and not always cooperative. The pigs have funny personalities and are funny when they run down the barn. Best of all, they like to eat marshmallows!
