My name is Daylen Brown and I am 11 years old and in the sixth grade at Tonto Basin School. This is my second year in 4-H and I am raising a steer named Poncho and do dog agility classes with my dog Abby. She would rather chase my steer, but I won’t let her.
My steer is a Black Angus and I got it off the H-4 ranch where I live. I have a three-acre field that I plant and grow my own barley hay for my steer. I do all the work and irrigating myself with Abby. Abby is a merle blue border collie.
I will miss Poncho, but do hope you join us for the action at the fair, Abby is not for sale.
The buyers dinner and sign up is at 2 p.m. and the action starts at 3 p.m. It is held at the Payson Event Center on Sept. 7.
Your donations are tax deductible after market value and they have procession options at the auction. So come support your local agriculture and fill your freezer with meat fresh from the farm. Spread the word and hope to see you there.
Thank you to last year’s buyer, Payson Apothecary Pharmacy.
Daylen Brown, Poncho and Abby
