4-H Junior Leaders grateful for steer

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

To the editor:

Our kids are part of the Putnam County Junior Leaders and volunteered to exhibit a dairy steer for the elementary field day.

Our 4-H steers are not the cute and cuddly size, so we called upon a friend, Matt Kirkham. He without hesitation, agreed to "loan" us a cute less than 1 month old Holstein steer for the kids to share with the elementary students.

He as many of you know works for the county highway department which requires an early start time, but he still managed to load and deliver the little steer to the fairgrounds for our kids. Matt you are an awesome, caring, and helpful friend.

John, Kelly, Megan, and Jacob Robertson,
