4-Hers preparing for county fair

July 18, 2011

PINGREE – As a run-up to the 4-H Fair Aug. 1-3, 4-H club members practiced showing their steers in Bingham County Steer Jackpot. The event was Saturday at Val and Heather Carter’s show ring south of Pingree.
In the jackpot, the entry fee comes back to the participants. It was open to all Bingham County 4-H members raising cattle.
Twenty steers were put through their paces. The 4-H members were judged on their showmanship and the quality of the animal.
Showmanship is how the 4-H member grooms his/her steer and how he/she handles the animal in the ring.
