Presentation results

Despite COVID-19, Iredell County 4-H’ers have had a busy and successful summer!

In July, Hannah Loftin and Grant Hall both won Gold at the state level for their 4-H presentations. Hannah presented in the 14-18 Livestock and Dairy Production category. Her presentation was titled, “How to Clip a Dairy Heifer So She Is Ready for Those Colored Shavings.” Grant presented on “Turkey Calls” in the 11-13 Forestry & Wildlife category.

On August 13, 2020, the NC 4-H Poultry Judging Contest was held virtually. Iredell County 4-H’ers had a wonderful showing, placing first in the senior division. The team consisted of Hannah Loftin, Laurel Gray, and Hanna Ball. Iredell County 4-H was also represented by two junior contestants, Cooper Grebe and Carson Ball.

In poultry judging, youth evaluate live birds, processed ready-to-cook birds, and eggs for quality, as well as the importance of marketing to the public and how to apply those skills in a realistic decision-making process. Poultry judging teaches animal husbandry fundamentals as well as life skills including critical thinking, teamwork, and oral communication.
