New Haven, Mo. - Ellie Scheer of Scheer Dairy Farms represented the New Haven 4-H Club and her family's farm with pride showing her Holstein cow and earning Grand Champion at the New Haven Youth Fair.
Ellie is the daughter of Rick and Cindy Scheer of New Haven.
Alicia Ley earned Reserve Champion with her Holstein.
The University of Missouri 4-H Youth Center for Development encourages club members in the Dairy Project to exhibit respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, and citizenship while showing, and the judges felt these young ladies did just that, in addition to their hard work and knowledge of the dairy industry.
The dairy project is a way to learn about the management and care of dairy cattle and the many career opportunities in the dairy industry. Activities in this project helps those involved gain knowledge in learning proper feeding, health, selection, and marketing.
Congratulations to Ellie, Alicia, and all 4-H and FFA fair participants.
