4-H FAIR

4-H Fair: food, fun, projects & lots of animals By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com

The fun begins Thursday as the 2012 Hamilton County 4-H Fair officially opens to the public. As the days have clicked away prior to the start, 4-H projects are being judged and displayed inside various buildings and the approximately 1,700 livestock animals that will call the 4-H Grounds home for the next few days will move in today. Kathleen Bohde, Hamilton County 4-H Youth Development Educator said projects from the 2,000 4-H’ers will Bohde be on display to the community – showcasing the work and knowledge gained by participants. “Our numbers are up this year (from 1,986 in 2011),” she said of 4-H enrollment. “Families value the 4-H experience and continue to be involved in the activities. 4-H is something the whole family can be involved in.” Hamilton County Purdue Extension officials estimate between 10,000 and 20,000 people will attend this year’s fair. Because the fair does not charge admission, officials say they have no way of knowing the exact attendance at each year. “A lot of it depends on the weather – attendance is down when it is really hot or rainy,” said Susan Peterson, Hamilton County Purdue Extension Peterson Director. While there are no new projects this year, Bohde said two projects have been removed – Family and Folklore. Bohde said the Hamilton County 4-H Council decided to drop the projects after looking at enrollment numbers from the past few years. The fair isn’t just for 4-H’ers. In addition to the food, animals, projects and various events, residents has several opportunities to showcase their talents. Open participation events for the public include the Pet Parade, Homemade Ice Cream Contest, Youth and Adult Tractor Pulls

and Farmer Olympics. Special events include Wright Brothers Trio concert (7 p.m. Saturday), Demolition Derby (7 p.m. Sunday) and a blood drive sponsored by the Hamilton County 4-H Council and the Indiana Blood Center (2 to 7 p.m. Thursday). Fair visitors should be sure to check in at the Riverview Pavilion, packed daily with a variety of different educational and hands-on activities including presentations by Purdue Extension, health information courtesy of Riverview Hospital; story time with the 4-H Queen; Animal Connection with 4-H animals; and the Hamilton County Humane Society; Hamilton East Public Library and many more. “The 4-H Council is very excited about some new entertainment events this year, including free concerts and an indoor movie showing,” said Bohde. In the event of triple digit temperatures, the Hamilton County 4-H Exhibition Center, O.V. Winks and Annex buildings and the Llama Barn all have air conditioning available for fairgoers. “People can get in and out if it’s too warm,” Peterson said. For those planning to attend the 4-H Fair, officials remind residents that parking is not limited to lots directly in front of the fair office. “The back 14 acres are always open,” said Bohde. “There will be signage off Clover Road to direct them to the area near the Tractor Pull Strip.” Attendees that may need assistance in getting from their vehicle to the various buildings and tents are encouraged to call the fair office at 776-0854 for a shuttle ride. “It’s a great family atmosphere,” said Peterson. “The fair is fun for all ages.” In addition to viewing more than 4,000 4-H projects, fairgoers can walk a llama, see baby chicks and rabbits, and – if they’re lucky – witness the birth of a baby pygmy goat. “The Hamilton County 4-H Fair is a great way to showcase agriculture and to remind county residents where their food and fibers come from,” added Bohde. “The whole process is learning. From aerospace to veterinary science, 4-H has something for everyone.”

Help 4-H’ers feed the hungry – Hamilton County residents can join the Hamilton County 4-H Program, Riverview Hospital and Good Samaritan in the eighth annual “4-H CAN Make a Difference” food drive in conjunction with the Hamilton County 4-H Fair July 19-24. The public is encouraged to bring nonperishable food items such as canned soup, vegetables, beans, peanut butter, pasta, cereal/oatmeal, powdered milk, and rice to the fair. The food banks strive to acquire nutritious food for low-income families and individuals in our community. Help fill up the food banks in Hamilton County this summer by dropping items off in the Riverview Pavilion during the fair. Riverview Hospital will also be collecting used cell phones to benefit Prevail and domestic violence victims. www.youarecurrent.com

Showmanship Supreme Showmanship Winners

Supreme Showmanship contest celebrates 40 years By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com Monday marks the 40th Anniversary of the 4-H Supreme Showmanship Contest – a competition for advanced showman in grades 9-12. This year’s contest will be held at 7 p.m. in the Show Arena on the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville. Bob Peterson started the competition back in 1973. His daughter, Janet (Peterson) White, won the inaugural event. Ann (Peterson) Day won the next year and John Peterson made it three consecutive wins for the family in 1975. That started the Day/Peterson family streak. Ann’s oldest son, Nathan Day, won the title in 2003 and helped his brother, Cameron, earn the distinguished award in 2008. “Without their direction I couldn’t have done this,” Cameron said after winning. “My whole family pretty much taught me everything I know.” Supreme Showmanship has been a family affair with animal showman. Since 2000, two sets of siblings have won the award – Nathan and Cameron and Justin and Adam Quear in 2000 and 2006 respectively. Last year’s winner, Joel Flanders of Noblesville was the third winner in the Flanders family. Joel’s uncle, Jerry, won in 1991 and cousin, Ben Lehman, won in 2004.

“He was so laid back about the whole thing,” said Jerry. “He went out there and owned it. I’m very proud of him.” Senior Showmanship winners from beef cattle, dairy cattle, dairy goats, horse and pony, meat goats, sheep and swine compete to master the showmanship techniques not only of their own animal, but of all seven species. A qualified judge from each species puts the contestants through their paces with each animal – never Animals hit center stage at 4-H Fair – Approximately 1,700 animals live on the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds during the fair. Here is a list of the animal projects in this year’s county fair: beef cattle, bucket calf, cats, dairy cattle, dairy goats, dogs, horse and pony, llamas, meat goats, pocket pet, poultry, Pygmy goats, rabbits, sheep and swine.

knowing for certain which 4-H’ers won which species. Judges score the participants based on their handling of the animal and rank them accordingly. Participating in the contest provides 4-H’ers with learning experience and a chance to work with their fellow 4-H’ers while learning the additional species. Contestants often work together, showing each other the guidelines for handling each species. Supreme Showmanship Committee Chairman Tim Whisman feels this is the best part of the process. “I wish more people could see what happens behind the scenes with the contestants. Watching them work together and help each other with different species before the contest is remarkable,” said Whisman, the 1982 Supreme Showman winner. The animals used in the contest are selected ahead of time by the Supreme Showmanship committee. The contestants’ animals are not used. 4-H’ers who win Supreme Showmanship are ineligible to compete in the contest again. “There are a lot of showmen who want to win (Supreme) more than anything,” said Whisman. “Sometimes the most important part of my job is consoling those who do not win, or don’t even get to compete. Those moments are usually the best part of my job, too.”
