After a family friend asked Country View 4-H member Rachel Wilke to give exhibiting sheep a try, the Door County Quality Market Animal Sale Program gave her the tools to succeed. The non-profit organization gives participating youth a taste of agribusiness by helping them raise and support a livestock project. Wilke had previously only shown cows at the Door County Fair before trying sheep two years ago. She says her parents, and the members of the QMAS program helped her a lot.
Wilke was looking forward to showing Thunder the sheep and her other animals at this year’s fair as a culmination of the hard work she has put in with them over the last few months.
