4H Listowel

Marc's calf was not an easy calf to work with

socializing is a big part of the day

Jeff was in the middle

Marc ended up last

Sometimes it is just not your day

But his calf did not bolt so all that training did help

but the cow corn came back up again

it's a different story with the people corn

flat and broken on top of the beans

Friday morning breakfast outside

The wind was blowing fierce
