Poultry - 4-H Livestock Sale

Marian Pirrone - My name is Marian Pirrone. I have been showing poultry in Columbia County since I was 8 years old. My 4-H friend Zaia has lots of chickens and taught me about them. Last year, I was Champion Poultry Showman. This year, I will be showing Cornish Cross meat chickens and putting them in the Livestock auction. The rest of my crop will go to feed my family. I take care of them at my home, by feeding them the best organic feed and letting them free-range as much as is safe so they will give the healthiest meat. Being in the 4-H Livestock program teaches me about where food comes from and how to be in business. This holiday season, I will also be starting a soap making business with these skills.
