We got to pick up our checks today from the 4 H Livestock auction. I am so thankful for the members of the community that donate money to the children to help them pay for and raise livestock. Any amount of money helps pay expenses and encourages the children (who are our future farmers.) The price of chicken feed has gone up so much this year, I cannot imagine the cost of raising some of the larger animals. I am thankful that the money the children received this year will pay their expenses for next year.
