Highland Highlights 4-H Club met for its regular monthly meeting April 13 hosted by Tim, Karen and Tyler Loudon at their home.

Different livestock sessions were set up and members could go listen to demonstrations about the various county fair livestock project areas given by community members who are experienced in that particular area. Chickens, rabbits, sheep, goats, bottle calves, heifers, steers and horses were the main topic areas covered. A special thank you to those who came and shared your knowledge with our club.
