She thinks the most difficult aspect is “probably all the attention you have to give them.”
The St. Louis School seventh-grader’s favorite animals are cows. “I start them out as starter calves and bottle feed them .... I take them to the fair as calves and bring them again the next year as steer.”
The young lady believes the most rewarding aspect is “just being with them and getting them ready.” She also likes receiving ribbons and spending time with friends during fair week.
Hunter Kellerman points out, “Showing the pigs is pretty fun.”
Tanner Kellerman and Werner agree it’s also nice to get the money from the auction when the animals are sold.
Jeff Koch points out, “It’s just a neat experience for the kids to come out and see how livestock is raised.”
