Meet Rachel Rusconi, a Blossom Trail 4-H student who is a 9th grader at Sanger High School. Here's what Rachel's 4-H advisor has to say about her:
"Rachel Rusconi is 14 years old and in the 9th grade at Sanger High School. This is her sixth year in 4-H and she is a member of Blossom Trail 4-H club where she is on the executive board as the club Treasurer. Rachel has been attending dairy goat shows since she was just a few months old and she began showing goats as soon as she could walk. She loves these animals and it shows in her dedication.
She and her sister raise a small herd of alpine dairy goats at the home. Rachel joined 4-H to be a part of the dairy goat project. She has been a junior leader for the project the last two years and is currently a teen leader teaching other members how to properly care for and show goats. She is up every morning, 7 days a week, before school or any other activities to milk, feed, and water her goats and the process is repeated again each night before she is done for the day. This year, Rachel will be selling a Nubian/Saanen Recorded Grade dairy replacement doe in the auction on October 3rd. She will also be selling a dairy market goat in the virtual auction.”
