4-H Club comes center stage

Written by 

Youth with the 4-H Livestock Club in Haywood County will be front and center at the county fair this weekend in the numerous livestock shows held over the fair’s four-day run.

In addition to showing their own goats, sheep and cattle at the county fair, members of the 4-H livestock club also learn how to judge animals — and actually have judging contests where they have to rank several animals based on several qualities, including calculating an animal’s overall rate of gain for market purposes.

Along with the Haywood County Fair, they compete in several regional, state and national competitions throughout the year.

Members of Future Farmers of America from Tuscola and Pisgah High Schools also participate in the many livestock shows held at the Haywood County fair this week at the fairgrounds on N.C. 209. The schedule for livestock shows include:

• Sheep Show: 6:30 p.m. Fri., Aug. 24, Barn

• Goat Show: 9 a.m. Sat., Aug. 25, Barn     

• Horse Show : 9:30 a.m. Sat., Aug. 25, Arena 

• Beef Show: 12 p.m. Sat., Aug. 25, Barn   

• Dairy Show: 4 p.m. Sat., Aug. 25, Barn      

• Swine show: 2 p.m. Sun., Aug. 26, Barn

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI’m alone, again.

    As of last Tuesday, I am newly single. To be honest, I’m not happy about that fact. Not one bit. This was the relationship where I felt she was the “one,” a person I truly could see myself marrying and having a family with. That notion — a wife and kids — has been the furthest things from my mind for years.
