My name is Ethan John, though some call me EJ, this is my last year of 4-h (10 years in counting) and in the fall I will be heading off to college at Walla Walla University. I will be studying Mechanical Engineering. I am hoping to do well showing my steer, Elton John, this year and leave 4-h on a good note. My steer this year is one of the best steers I have raised. He is from Rider Ranch and we get our own steers from them for our freezer.
