For our next installment of #ShowboxSaturday, we visit the beef projects, and Kody Buchenroth, who is on the beef committee of the Hardin County Junior Fair Board. Kody is a member of the Boots & Buckles 4-H Club and the Kenton-OHP FFA Chapter. He has been involved in the fair for the past eight years exhibiting Dairy Beef Feeders.
Kody said that extra essentials are important to have in the show box.
“Some helpful items to have in your show box would be an extra halter, neck rope, feed pan and water bucket,” said Buchenroth.
Buchenroth also advised having additional items on hand for show day.
“Keep an extra scotch comb, show stick and paper towels or a rag. A spare change of show close won’t hurt either because you never know what may happen in the barn,” said Kody.
Kody said he would tell beginning members that all of their hard work will pay off.
“Keep your eyes on the judge and your smile ear to ear because next thing you know it will be your last year,” he said.
