Third-year member and secretary of the Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers 4-H Club, Karley McPherson, has been working hard preparing for the upcoming Richland County 4-H market animal show and sale. This year she is showing a market steer and hog. "This is my third year showing a steer and my first year showing a pig. I have really enjoyed showing my steer, so I am really excited to show my pig this year," said McPherson.
She also participates in several indoor projects, including photography and quilting. "My favorite project is quilting. My grandma taught me how to sew, and she has been helping me with my quilting project. I really like quilting because I like sewing, and it allows me to spend time with my grandma," stated McPherson.
When asked what made her want to join 4-H, she explained that there are several kids within her school that inspired her to join the Yellowstone Valley Trailblazers 4-H club. "I love getting to be around lots of nice people and getting to hang out at 4-H events with my friends," added McPherson.
Although she was disappointed that COVID-19 has changed how 4-H events have been operating this year, she is excited to show her animals and indoor exhibits.
"This year will be different because people are not able to come and watch us show our animals and the fair will be virtual, but I am excited to still be able to present my projects. I hope to get Best of Fair on one of my photography pictures," explained McPherson.
McPherson will be entering her freshman year at Savage High School. Throughout her high school career, she hopes to stay involved in agriculture. She said, "I hope to stay involved in 4-H and agriculture for many years to come."
