Youth Show Off Their Beef Projects At Escambia County 4-H Labor Day Classic

September 7, 2019

Youth from Florida and Alabama showed their beef project animals during the second annual Escambia County 4-H Labor Day Classic at the 4-H property in Molino.

Youth showed their animals in the showmanship category, which focuses on the youth’s show abilities, and the breed and weight classes, which focus on the animal’s merits.

“This show was just a stepping stone for youth who are preparing these animals for shows later in the year where they will finish their project,” said Ali Schortinghouse, 4-H livestock agent. “Of the many hours a youth pours into a livestock project, shows like the Labor Day Classic allow the youth to demonstrate their growth throughout the project.”

    I remember my 4H years fondly….winning ribbons at the fair, the AG atmosphere was not something I was raised in but I loved learning to garden, canning, a little sewing (still not great at that). It’s a fun, healthy atmosphere for any kid.
