4-H’ers from two different clubs attended a goat project meeting at the home of Rhonda Carter.  Carter’s daughter Suzanna shared skills she had learned from her days showing dairy goats in 4-H.
Attendees Anna Hester, Zoe Nason, Olivia, Liza, and Ben Rogers learned about the differences between meat goats and dairy goats, and how dairy goats are shown and judged at the fair. Afterward, Suzanna Carter acted as judge to allow the attendees to experience what it is like to show a dairy goat at the fair.
Carter is a wonderful example of the connection to our community that makes 4-H such a great experience for young people.  By giving of her time and knowledge, Rhonda Carter provides an opportunity for city kids to learn about livestock and what life is like on a farm.
