start he got in livestock through
his club work, which now, tho

she has many first-place ribbons
in sheep exhibits, taking first in

year of club work. One of the
first 4-H members to carry a reg
istered sheep project, Peggy now
has a sizeable flock of registered
Hampshires. She has had the

place fleece at the Pacific Inter
