Wilke an exhibitor of all trades

Country View 4-H member Ruth Wilke is already hoping to add another animal to her exhibition portfolio when the Door County Fair returns next summer. Wilke, an eighth grader at Sevastopol Middle School, started her fair career showing cows before adding chickens and turkeys in recent years. She says her turkeys Timmy and Tommy would have been easy to exhibit this year, but it took a lot of training to get to that point.

Wilke says she was looking forward to this year’s fair because she had another friend who was going to exhibit chickens for the first time. With her sister’s permission, she would like to show sheep in the future in addition to her three other disciplines.


You can hear and see more about Wilke’s turkeys for this year’s Virtual Animal Sale below.
