|2003-2004 Montana 4-H Clover
There's no job too big for this 4-H'er
Little Paige and Big Cody go to the fair
Nine-year-old Paige Murdock leads her steer at the Big Horn County Fair.
If you're ever afraid to do something because it might be too hard or scary, just think about the challenge Paige Murdock decided to take on. Paige, 9, entered her 1,250 pound Black Angus steer named Cody in the 2002 Big Horn County Fair.
Paige is the daughter of Kent and Stephanie Murdock of Lodge Grass. On the family ranch, she enjoys helping her father work the cattle.
Paige is a member of the Little Horn Beef Rustlers. She joined 4-H because her older sister was a member and Paige saw how much fun it was. But it has also been an opportunity for growth.
"4-H and Cody helped Paige learn responsibility," said Stephanie, since she has to get up and feed her steer every morning.
When asked what Cody is like, Paige describes him as big and nice. But isn't it a little scary being around such a large animal? "Yes," admits Paige.
But Paige wasn't afraid to enter Cody in the fair last summer so she could start to earn money for college. Cody was up to the task too, and was awarded a blue ribbon.
The programs of the MSU Extension Service are available to all people regardless of race, creed, color, sex, disability or national origin.
