IXL 4-H Club member Morgan Sip of Ada, Minnesota was looking forward to showing cattle at the Minnesota State Fair this year. Sip will be a senior in high school in the fall and this is one of his last years to exhibit livestock through 4-H. “I purchased a steer for the state fair. Then, all of a sudden, the coronavirus came and the events were cancelled,” said Sip. “The Minnesota State Fair is really the only time I see my close friends. We had also planned to attend the North Dakota State Fair, but that was cancelled, too.” Sip enjoys raising Hereford cattle and tells the Red River Farm Network he’s learned lots about responsibility working with livestock. Sip has this advice for younger showmen: “It’s not all about winning, it’s about having fun.” Thanks to AgCountry Farm Credit Services, Associated Milk Producers Incorporated, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and others for sponsoring the Parade of Champions.
