Meet a local 4-Her: Allie Reeser, lover of ducks

Allie Reeser with her drake, Midnight, at the 2018 Osage County Fair.

My name is Allie Reeser, and I’m a member of the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club. This is my fourth year in 4-H and my first year in poultry, ducks. In 2017 for my birthday, I received four baby ducklings. My dad built them a pen, and I began taking care of them every day. When 4-H enrollment came around, I begged my mom to allow me to enroll in poultry, ducks.

I continued my regular care for them until the fair time began to get closer; it was during this time that I decided to show my drake. Around May, my mom and I started watching YouTube videos on how to wash, prepare properly, and show a duck. I was only able to show my duck at the Osage County Fair at Osage City this year, but he did a great job! My drake, Midnight, received reserve grand champion, and I received reserve grand champion on my showmanship. I definitely will be showing my ducks again next year!
