Livestock Lifestyle More Than Okay For Mercer County Little Sister Hank

Youth working with livestock continues to be a big deal in Western Illinois. Soon to be Mercer County High School sophomore Sheridan Hank has had a good summer already—winning the Grand Champion Beef Female at the Section 4 FFA Fair at the Knox County Fairgrounds in Knoxville.  Her and heifer “Rebel” now have other plans.

And her family is no stranger to the lifestyle—mom, dad and two older brothers have all spent considerable time in the show ring.

Hank will miss the Mercer County Fair next week—the first time ever, because of the National Junior Angus Show, which begins Sunday in Des Moines.
