Avva Fitzpatrick & Leonard
My name is Avva Fitzpatrick. I am 9 years old and this is my first year in 4-H. I have a market steer project and I participate in the foods group as well. My market steer this year is named Leonard. He is a simmental/ charlois cross. I have been feeding Leonard 4-H finisher ration and free choice alfalfa, timothy, brome mix hay. He has been a really good eater all winter and he weighs approximately 1400 pounds. I took Leonard to Peace Prospect in Valleyview this year in April and he placed second in his weight class and in the top ten overall. I was really happy to go and show him and get some practice.
The thing I like best about Leonard is he is very gentle and kind. He is also a BIG BEEF CAKE! He likes seeing me come to the pen and will come right to the gate. The thing I like best about 4-H is getting to spend time with my friends, doing fun things like skiing and I am excited about going to summer camps and all the other activities that 4-H offers. Along with 4-H I also play hockey on the Savanna Stars U11 team and I have enjoyed participating in school sports activities this year as well. I look forward to
seeing everyone at Achievement Day and to show off Leonard.
