Sixteen-year-old Sydnee Johnson of Zap, North Dakota has shown goats and beef cattle throughout her 4-H career. A few years ago, Johnson and her four siblings decided to full commit themselves to the organization. “My older sister had to pick between piano lessons or showing in 4-H because our family didn’t want too much on our plate while also raising livestock. So, we all agreed to show livestock and went from showing at just our county fair to showing all around the state.” Johnson, who is part of the Riverside Valley 4-H Club, was the Grand Champion 4-H Beef Senior Showman at the North Dakota State Fair this year. At the end of the day, it means more to Johnson to do well in showmanship. “You work with that animal all year long in hope of winning showmanship.” The Parade of Champions radio series highlights the hard work of 4–H and FFA youth across the region. This salute to the next generation is sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, North Dakota Wheat Commission, AgCountry Farm Credit Services and Associated Milk Producers Incorporated and its Dinner Bell Creamery Brand.
