Edgefield County 4-H Pullet Show and Auction Results

By: Stephen Pohlman
Clemson Extension County Agent - Edgefield

web posted November 25, 2008
COUNTY – The Edgefield County 4-H Pullet Chain participants put on a show November 8th at the Abbeville, Edgefield, McCormick Pullet Show and Auction. The Edgefield County youth were judged on: completion of record books, a pen of 5 birds, and on chicken showmanship. The youth have had to learn how to care for their birds, build chicken coops, how to collect eggs, document data and how to show a chicken.

 The Edgefield 4-H’ers did well in the contests and took home blue ribbons in most. The day ended with the auctioning off of 5 of each youths chickens. While some were ready to end their chicken farming days, others were sad to see their chickens leave, though all of the chickens went home with buyers who will continue to take great care for their birds.  Out of 18 pens of birds, our Poultry judge wanted to buy 2 pens, both were Edgefield County birds; a testament to the quality of these birds our children raised.  This project has been a great learning opportunity for the youth, teaching responsibility and care for livestock.
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Edgefield Pullet Chain participants to thank Southern States of Johnston for sponsoring our premium money that was awarded for record books, pen of 5, and showmanship judging. I would also like to thank all of our local buyers who came out and supported our youth. Lastly, I would like to thank all of the volunteers and parents for their help throughout this project and for making it a success.

4-H is open to all youth ages 5-19 and focuses on teaching life skills through hands on applications. If you would like more information on projects, clubs, and activities please contact Stephen Pohlman, Edgefield County Agent, spohlma@clemson.edu.
