Meet a local 4-Her: Grace Croucher’s animals are her 4-H rewards

Grace Croucher and her steer, Wilson.

Grace Croucher is an eight-year 4-H member and currently serves as vice president of the Willing Workers 4-H Club.

Projects taken to the fair: Due to the uncertainty of the world, I only took beef and swine to the fair.

Favorite activities this year: Helping other 4-Hers with their projects, expanding my swine nutrition skills, and the opportunity to show my steer Wilson at the Kansas Classic Show, in Hutchinson, as well as the few spring shows we were able to attend before the fair.

Best experiences this year in 4-H: The opportunity COVID-19 gave me to spend time with Wilson, my steer, and my six show pigs. I am proud to have earned Grand Champion Senior Beef Showman and Grand Champion Market Steer with Wilson, in Osage City.  And also raising, feeding, and showing the Overall Grand Champion Breeding Gilt, Grand Champion Duroc Gilt, Reserve Champion Duroc Gilt, and the Overall Reserve Champion Market Hog, at the Overbrook Osage County Fair.

It has been a very rewarding year for me and I am thankful for the mentors in my life.  I hope that I can be a good leader for the younger 4-Hers and help them to make the best better!
