Spring Creek Flows
Teton County’s Spring Creek 4-H Club achieved flow last Wednesday at the KMON-sponsored Livestock Judging Contest at the MAGIE in Great Falls. A team of 8 Spring Creek members, having just dipped their toes into practicing livestock judging the weekend prior, won the team trophy and had 3 individuals place in the top 5 of a field of 17 total 4-H members representing 4 counties. Spring Creek parent Jon Redland (father of Mesa) and Spring Creek co-club leader Susan Snyder had arranged an artic livestock judging initiation for the young team at the Richins and Snyder places, with Jon instructing. These 8 game kids somehow paid close attention despite sub-zero temps. With only this much experience, and being younger than many of their competitors, our kids did Teton County proud. Theo Lytle, son of Jason and Hannah, took first place in 4-H Livestock Judging, with Leah Paulson and Anna Paulson, daughters of Justin and Tiffany, placing fourth and fifth, respectively. Other competitors were Mesa Redland, Polly Lytle, Boaz Lytle, Hannah Meyer, and Claira Duty. Rumor has it that they all had a great time!
