Livestock: Life long passion

Dedication and commitment can lead to great achievement as proven by Ashley Bue, Fillmore County 4-H’er and livestock shower. As soon as Bue was old enough to show beef cattle at the Fillmore County Fair, she was in the arena. Loving the atmosphere of competitions, she continued to show and be involved in beef cattle.

“Showing and raising livestock will allow you to make friendships that last a lifetime, along with gaining knowledge in your project area and learning valuable life lessons while having fun.” Ashley continued, “My favorite part of showing livestock is sharing my knowledge of the beef industry with younger members and the public. Through this, I hope to instill a passion for livestock like older members did for me when I was their age.”

This past July was the last time she could show at the Fillmore County Fair and advance to the State competition.

Participating youth are eligible for a scholarship called the Minnesota Livestock Breeders’ Association 4-H Auction Scholarship. This was brought to Bue’s attention as she was able to advance to the state level. Over 140 applications were submitted into the Livestock Breeders’ Association’s office. The applications were weighed based upon their leadership and achievement in youth livestock programs, as well as their involvement in the local community.

Over 150 young showers received 4-H Auction Scholarships at the State Fair in the past decade to attend the college of their choice. In 2013, two new levels of scholarships were available at $1,000 and $2,000 per award. Only 10 of each scholarship was awarded at the Auction. Ashley was one of the recipients of a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarship was awarded on Saturday, August 24 at the Purple Ribbon Auction in the AgStar Arena at the Minnesota State Fair.

Ashley commented, “Raising and showing livestock has taught me many life lessons. For me, livestock will always be a part of my life. With my experience through 4-H and FFA, I will be able to continue my passion of livestock.”
