love the summer, but I am so glad we have moved into the
fall and the cooler weather. However, for me, the summer of
2015 went by way too quickly. We had an exciting time with
a variety of opportunities for youth across North Carolina
to learn about the livestock program. These opportunities
included livestock shows, clinics, seminars and youth tours.
Traditionally, one of the highlights every year is the State 4-H
livestock contests. This year, we held the State 4-H livestock
judging, skillathon and quiz bowl contests on July 28 and 29.
For the first time, we also hosted an awards breakfast, which
was held on July 30th at the McKimmon Center. We had a great
group of kids in attendance for the events, and the competitions
were really impressive.
A full list of all of the 2015 winners can be found on our
website at (http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/an_sci/extension/
The awards breakfast provided a great opportunity for the
kids to be recognized for their hard work and commitment to
the livestock industry. We would like to thank those that helped
support our first awards breakfast. Our sponsors included
Smithfield Foods Inc., Livestock Veterinary Services, Lloyd B.
Outlaw III and Ada Outlaw, Collier Holdings LLC and Lenoir
Swine Breeders, Inc.
This year, we recognized two people for their longtime
dedication to the youth livestock program. Frank Hollowell
and David Lee were awarded plaques in recognition of their
countless years of support and the hundreds of hours both of
these gentlemen have given to encourage and assist the kids
showing swine across North Carolina. Additionally, they have
been two mighty fine cooks for the state livestock events during the past several years.
We would also like to give special thanks to the NC Pork
Council and all of their members for graciously supporting
these events as well as the youth livestock programs across
