Emily Jassman and Buddy Boy

Thank you Rick's Fuel Services Ltd., for purchasing my steer!

Hi, my name is Emily Jassman. I am 10 years old and this is my first year in 4H. I joined 4H because we have a lot of cows on our farm and I want to learn more about feeding, showing and marketing them. My steer’s name is Buddy Boy, he is a Simmental cross. I picked this steer because he is very eye catching, with a wide and straight topline, with lots of muscling, and is very gentle. My favorite thing about Buddy Boy is that he was very easy to halter break and loves being brushed. Buddy Boy weighed in at 710 pounds and I hope that he will finish close to 1,300 pounds. I feed Buddy 24 pounds of 4H Finishing Ration and 25 pounds of silage a day. I am sad that Achievement Day is cancelled this year, but I am looking forward to next year!
