Head Plans To Collect More Awards At Next Year's Fair

Fourteen-year-old William Head had a successful first year at the Richland County Fair. He is a member of the North Road Renegades 4-H Club and shows steer, market lambs, and breeding sheep.

He had the 2022 Grand Champion market lamb, Grand Champion pen of two ewe lambs, Reserve Champion overall lamb breeding, Reserve Champion female lamb under one year, and Top of the Class market beef.

"I was very proud of myself this year! It really encouraged me to push myself harder next year. I have worked very hard all summer with my animals and hard work pays off," said Head.

This year, he decided to join 4-H because his mentor, Wyn Reimann inspired him, and he wanted to gain livestock experience.

His favorite 4-H projects thus far are market beef, sheep, and woodworking. "Being involved from the calving and lambing to the finished project made it very special for me."

Head is also thankful for the experience and the knowledge he has gained from his projects.

For the upcoming year, he hopes to continue working towards his goals. "I want to be more feed efficient with my beef project. I have already picked my next market steer out! I also want to work harder on getting my lambs set. My list of goals is long, but I know I can accomplish them with hard work and dedication."
