Newman 4-H Club member Cailin Casey was named both the youth management and youth achievement winner for the 2018-2019 exhibition year by the Palomino Co-Breeders Association at the national “All Palomino Show” in Alexandria, La.
This year’s project achievement contestants were asked to make a slide or powerpoint presentation highlighting their achievements and accomplishments with their rabbit project. The management contestants were to take the judging committee on a video tour of their rabbitry, explaining their breeding, cleaning, feeding and other management highlights.
The video entry was filmed by Sophia Hayes and both division entries were judged by the Palomino Co-Breeders Association and National Youth Committee. Winners were announced at the national show. Casey is now a six-time winner of the youth awards and is currently ranked third in the nation with her Palomino Project.
