Bardsdale 4-H Bests At The Fair

Bardsdale 4-H members had a great time at the Ventura County Fair and were awarded many ribbons. We would especially like to thank our generous livestock buyers: Mike’s Handyman Service for buying Brooke Aguirre’s pig, Santa Clara Valley Bank for Noah Aguirre’s pig, Gibbs Truck Center for Alexus Galassi’s heifer, Ellison Taub for Natalie Garnica’s pig, Williams Pipeline Contractors for Adrian Gonzales’ pig, Laura & Rigo Landeros for Timmy Klittich’s lamb, Redman Racing for Timmy Klittich’s turkey, Oxnard Lemon for Jessica Mayhew’s pig, AAA Propane for Michael Mayhew’s pig, Burns Equipment Service for Dillon Raye’s pig, Western Farm Service for Jessica Raye’s pig, BC Rincon Construction for Candace Stines pig, Aqua-Flo Supply for Tabitha Tucker’s lamb, and Ventura Rental Center for Hilary Vigil’s pig.

Four of our members were 1st place weight class winners in swine: Noah Aguirre, Sonya Gonzales, Jessica Raye, and Candace Stines.
Michael Mayhew won 3rd in his class in the Swine Barrow show and 5th in his market class. Jessica Mayhew placed 4th in her market class and in the Barrow show. Alexus Galassi placed 2nd in her heifer class and Brooke Aguirre placed 3rd in her swine class.

We had several kids place in showmanship where the member is judged on their ability to present their animal. Tabitha Tucker won 2nd in Junior Lamb Showmanship, Alexus Galassi won 4th in Heifer, Noah Aguirre won 5th in Senior Swine, Brooke Aguirre won 8th in Junior Swine, Natalie Garnica won 5th in Novice Swine, and Danny Klittich placed 2nd in Adult Showmanship. Primary member Aubree Duncan placed 1st in the Pygmy Goat costume contest.

In the Youth Building, many ribbons(too numerous to list them all) were won by members of the Arts and Crafts project and Woodworking project. Six girls presented table settings: 1st places Tabitha Tucker and Brooke Aguirre, 2nd places Candace Stines and Alexus Galassi, and primary participation Aubree Duncan and Chloe Stines. Timmy Klittich received a Best of Class for his educational turkey poster and Candace Stines received a Best of Class for her pig sign.

Everyone had a great time at the fair and camping at the beach. It was fun to support our fellow members in all the events and competitions. We hope you were able to attend the Fair too and see some of our entries.
