Davie County 4-Hers participated in the 2017 Yadkin Davie 4-H Livestock Show  Aug. 12 at the Lone Hickory Arena.

Luke and Jake Hannah competed in the sheep show as first-time participants. Luke was in the Cloverbud Show while Jake competed in the Junior Division.

“These young men competed very well and even made it to the championship drive,” said Hannah Elmore, Cooperative Extension 4-H agent.

Hunter and Addison Hendrix competed in the sheep show in the Senior Division. Addison won Champion and Hunter won Reserve Champion. “We are so incredibly proud of these youth and all that they accomplished,” she said. “A thank you as well to Jesse Ledbetter, agriculture teacher at Davie County High School, for coaching and helping Hunter and Addison in their showing this season. 4-H greatly benefits youth through leadership and life skill development.”

Projects through 4-H can include activities including showing livestock and anything that youth are interested in. If you have any questions about participation in the 2018 Yadkin Davie Livestock or Davie County 4-H to contact Hannah Elmore at Hannah_elmore@ncsu.edu or 336-753-6100.
