Twelve-year-old Dolly Lehne is a Vermilion 4-H Beef Member and after showing her junior heifer said, “I like being in 4-H because it gives you a lot of confidence, and people treat you like family. When doing public speaking they are preparing you for the future, and it is nice to learn a lot about heifers and steers.
