Show Season

One of the many blessings of entering the spring season on a dairy is the realization that “show” season is right around the corner.  Luckily in our part of the country, we have several youth fairs and other shows available for dairy kids to participate in.  In our local youth fair, dairy is the largest show with over 95 kids participating.  The joy of helping your son or daughter help lead a young calf becomes part of the daily schedule.  Our family is 6 years into participating in 4-h and I must admit, we have more and more fun every year.  So when I wonder if we are ever going to get the kids ready for the shows as well as get their homework done I remember one important thing.
