Savoy Jr. FFA Makes Strong Showing at County Fair
Four Savoy Junior FFA students spent the week of October 4th showcasing their hard work over the last several months with their animal projects at the Fannin County Fair and Livestock Show. Students showing livestock were Emma Garner (Rabbits, Goat), Weldon Garner (Goat), Aubrie Slaughter (Heifer, Steer) and Annabelle Green (Heifer). Each of these young students have spent the last several months preparing their animals for the show ring. Daily feeding and exercise regiments are just part of the process that goes into preparing the animals for a livestock show. Students also keep up with feeding records and expenses to help them learn exactly what it takes to become a livestock producer. Each of these students did an outstanding job this week. All of them are winners because of their dedication and hard work in preparing the animal and making it to the County Fair.
