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.

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 mon, 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!
