Job Well Done!

Hi 4-H’ers! We just finished two steaks off the barbecue. They were great – it takes a lot of work to raise good beef cattle. I know it was hard to walk away and know the animal you worked so hard to raise will end up on the meat counter.
Still, think back on what you have learnt about raising animals. More important, think about what qualities you have developed in your strength of character to care and tend for any animal, the records you kept on food and water, the time it took to halter break and groom and trim the animal. Think – you have matured greatly in this process to become a better, wiser person with the character to meet the responsibility of doing what is needed to meet a task and goal set before you.
