Seen At The Conference

Wild Rose Farm is always impressed with the adult leaders and volunteers that make things like 4-H, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts possible.  This First Class Scout and sibling of an Eagle Scout can be counted on to buy Girl Scout Cookies & support local youth.
I spotted this gentleman at the Appalachian Grazing Conference  and asked him to stop to take a picture of his team jacket.  He was the proud team coach.  How many of you knew that soil judging existed? 
I remember a class in Soil Science at Penn State.  "IT'S NOT DIRT!" said the professor ..... it was a combination of biology, chemistry, classification, & management.  It really was one of the "building block" science classes in the College of Ag. 
Anyway, hat's off to the leaders & coaches who mentor, take time, & travel with their teams to compete!
