OLIVIA: My name is Olivia I am 11 years old. I would like you to meet my 4-H project. This is my first time raising a market sheep. His name is Jan(pronounced Yon) after Dr. Jan Pol. He is a Icelandic cross lamb. I live in Cortland County with my family. We have a funny farm with all kinds of animals. I picked this lamb because I loved the color of his wool. I enjoyed taking care of him since he was born on March 20th.
ABBY: Abby is raising a wee lamb this year.Betty Chops will be 7 months old at the time of the sale. Her breed is a Shropshire cross.This is Abby’s 4-H market lamb.

He lives at our friends farms with lots of animals. I feed him grain, hay, grass and water. I love him and all the animals. He is a Iceland Cross breed.
RYAN: Hi. My name is Ryan. This is my 4th year raising market turkeys. I really enjoy raising them because they are very friendly. We get them in March and they live in our back room until spring comes. Then they live in a pen we move everyday so they get fresh grass.
KATIE: My name is Katie. This is my first year raising turkeys. I help feed them twice a day, and I help move their pen. I like walking them with the cane too. They are like feathery dogs!
OLIVIA: My name is Olivia I am 11 years old. I would like you to meet my 4-H project. His name is Waffle. He is a White Broad Breasted Turkey. I live in Cortland County with my family. We have a funny farm with all kinds of animals. This is my first year raising a market Turkey. I learned a lot about how much to feed them, and not to over feed. I loved watching them grow and learn to gobble.
MACKENZIE: My name is Mackenzie I am 10 years old. I would like you to meet my 4-H project. His name is Blue. I live in Cortland County with my large family. We have a small hobbie farm with lots of animal's. This is my first year raising a market Turkey. I learned a lot about what they need to love and thrive. I found out they love to listen to music when we are outside. The Turkeys gobbled and started to strutting.
RYAN: Hi my name is Ryan K , I am 16 and this is my 1st year raising market turkeys. My turkeys name is brisket. I liked raising the turkeys because they are funny to watch. The turkeys ate fresh grass and grains.
JORDYN: I have had a lot of fun raising my turkeys this year. I learned that I have to stay calm while working with turkeys or they freak out. I am excited to sell my first market turkey.
RYAN: My name is Ryan. This is my 4th year raising broilers. They have taught me a lot. They only take about 7 weeks to reach market weight so they eat a lot! I enjoy watching them grow and feeding them everyday.
KATIE: My name is Katie. This is my first year raising broilers. We start them in the house under a heating lamp, then we moved them outside. They grow fast and are fun to take care of.
CASSIDY: Hi my name Is Cassidy this is my last year of 4-H and I decided to make it count by showing broiler chicks and getting the learning experience with them. I enjoyed this project because it gave me a new opportunity to try something new and also watch my birds grow up. Being able to watch them grow is such a learning experience on how much time and dedication it takes to put into a auction animal and make them the best quality you can for potential buyers . I’m glad I was given the chance and opportunity to try a new project on my last year.
OWEN: Hello! My name is Owen, and I am raising market broilers for my first time ever. This is also my first time in 4-H, and it has been a really fun and exciting new experience raising these birds. I feed and water the broilers every day since they need a lot of food to grow as fast as they do. They can run around in our barn, and we give them homemade food from the Tully AG store. All in all, it really has been an incredible experience with these birds.
MARKET HOG PROJECTS:
MEMPHIS: Snouts is a Yorkshire Hampshire cross barrow born February 11th. Memphis bought Snouts, his first pig, on April 11th. Snouts was a little young and a bit small for our July fair but Memphis was determined this was the one and it fit in his budget. Memphis favorite part of raising Snouts was getting to play with him and sharing him with his siblings. Memphis enjoys when his pig makes pig noises, or as he says “when Snouts snouts”.
JAYDEN-LYN: The Cross Patch Farm pig named "Be Syked" demonstrates all the qualities of great butcher hog. He has exceptionally good structure. He has great shoulder muscles and his hind quarters are well developed and would make great ham. He is quite lengthy which will make sure to give great bacon. He has the perfect ratio of fat and muscle. Even at 5 weeks old I could tell he had a great structure and saw that he was growing exceptionally better than the other pigs from his litter. These all make him a pig to “Be Syked” about.
COLLIN: My name is Collin, and I have been in 4-H for 7 years. My brother and I have raised market hogs and sold them at the 4-H fair auction to earn money for our college savings. In college I want to study to become a veterinarian. This year I have raised a very nice market hog that I am selling at the auction. This hog is exceptionally long and well muscled. The bacon, loin and hams will be outstanding. Enjoy!
ALICE: My name is Alice Tylutki and I’ve been showing pigs for 7 years. They are one of my favorite animals to raise and show. The pigs I got this year have been incredibly funny and nice and love to play with hoses. They are Duroc-Hampshire crosses. The one I’m selling is named "Punkin" and his is a very good looking pig and very sweet. I think pigs are like muddy dogs and they always have new funny things to show!
