McDonough county kids show off farm animals at 4-H show

Posted:
MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

A group of tri-state kids got a chance Wednesday to show off their farm skills and their farm animals.

The McDonough County 4-H Fair and Junior Show kicked off this week in Macomb with kids as young as 6 years old all the way to 18 years old taking part in the events.

The 4-H'ers showcased their animals including goats, cows, swine, sheep and chickens.

Some of the kids say being a part of 4-H teaches them responsibility and also gives them a chance to be with other kids with similar interests.

"You're like a leader of your community and your name is out there and it's easier to get into organizations through your school," said Alex Creasey a member of the McDonough County 4H Group.

"Meet friends and have fun and hang out, be able to talk to people you haven't seen in a while and meet new friends," said Haley Davison a member of the McDonough County 4H Group.

The 4-H show continues until Friday at the 4-H fair grounds, with the Cow show Thursday at 8AM and the Horse show Friday at 9AM.
