Dairy sale adds $10K to fund

August 4, 2014

Before he stepped into the show ring Saturday at the Auglaize County Fair Junior Livestock Sale, 17-year-old Brandon Turner knew no matter how much his dairy steer sold for, the money would be going to a good cause.

That’s because Turner decided he would donate it all to the Nichole “Niki” Renee Schaub 4-H Scholarship Fund. Schaub, a seven-year member of the Happy Herdsmen 4-H Club, died in a car accident in 1991. In honor of her memory, one or more $1,000 scholarships are handed out each year to graduating seniors enrolled in an Auglaize County 4-H club.

Market, dairy cows put on a show

July 31, 2014

Bridget Oen said it’s compassion she’s learned through showing in the 4-H market and dairy competitions as a 4-H member — compassion for the cattle and taking care of them.

Born and raised on a dairy farm, the St. Marys teen was looking for something more exciting than the rabbits she’d shown the year before when she started showing cattle.

When she entered the ring to show a Jersey steer she’d had since it was born, she said she had to be calm not just for herself, but for the animal so that it would stay calm.
