This is my steer, Blondie, a purebred Shorthorn. I purchased him from a local farmer, Brittany Rawlings, who lives across the street from me in Harwood, Maryland. I was able to watch his birth and halter broke him myself. This is my third year raising a market steer. I work with Blondie daily and have shown him a few times this spring at other shows.
I have found that raising a steer takes a significant amount of time and have been documenting the effort because he is my Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) in FFA. All three of my steers have taught me a lot about responsibility, patience and self-discipline.
I am 18 years old and just graduated from Southern High School, Class of 2022.
I am the Treasurer of the Harwood 4-H Livestock Club and I was the President of the Southern High School FFA my senior year. I am also a junior member of SMADC's Southern Maryland Meats Program.
I would like to thank my family and friends for all their support. I would especially like to thank Mary Henschel for purchasing my steer the last year and I'd like to thank all buyers for your support and contributions made during the Anne Arundel County 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction.
