4-H Poultry Show results
The Saline County 4-H Poultry Show was a bit different this year due to restrictions put in place by the Department of Agriculture to mitigate cases of Avian Flu. Exhibitors could not bring live birds to the show, but instead took pictures and made poster displays of their animals. Clean, washed, unfertilized eggs were allowed for display in the Egg Production class. Thank you to Show Superintendent Amy Richey and Judge Marisa Davis. County Champion ribbons were awarded to Raylan Murphy (Standard Chickens), Brileigh Owens (Geese), Marissa Cullers (Other Poultry -- Quail), and Raylan Murphy (Egg Production). Congratulation to all the exhibitors!
