Livestock project part of fair

Teen participants in the Maui County 4-H Livestock Project are preparing for the Upcountry Fair, to be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 8 and 9 at Oskie Rice Arena in Makawao.

On March 17, eight 4-H’ers who have been raising steers since November came together for a pre-show event. They weighed the animals to track their growth process and led the steers around the ring.

The Upcountry Fair will showcase 4-H youth livestock projects as well as games and music.
