Geauga Beef and Swine
The Geauga Beef and Swine 4-H Club met July 17 the at Adam’s Farm. Hailey Mitchell, Brock Calabrese, Braydon Calabrese, Coby Calabrese and Coltin Calabrese presented reports ranging from proper nutrition for poultry and poultry diseases, monogastric versus ruminant, breaking and training beef cattle.
The club is doing a candy bar fundraiser. Also, members have sent a check to support the Geauga County Hunger Task force and voted this month to send money for Family-A-Fair as a community service project. Last month for a club fundraiser, members helped clean up the grandstand track after the Burton Antique Show. Members now have their chicken projects and they are all counting down days until fair. All members have completed their skillathon to complete their 4-H projects.
The Great Geauga Fair will begin on Aug. 31 and will go through Labor Day. There will be two livestock sales this year – the small animals sell Sept. 2 at 2:30 p.m. and the large animals sell Sept. 3 at 4 p.m. (Submitted by Kaiden Wolcott, 12, news reporter)
