Big Fresno Fair favors alumna

Campus alumna and Kerman native, Nicole Bos, ?07, attends The Big Fresno Fair not for floorshows or cinnamon rolls, but to show her heifers and cows.

After a weeklong competition, Bos won first place for senior 4-H showmanship at the fairgrounds on Oct. 9.

Among the livestock shown, her matching cow and bull won Supreme Dairy Male/Female recognition while her heifer placed second in class.

“Before this year, I had never competed with Nicole because she was in 4-H and I was in FFA (Future Farmers of America),” Renee Idsinga, ’08, said, “but this year I was in 4-H, so we competed against each other. I wasn’t really surprised when she won first in showmanship, because she always does. A lot of 4-H girls look up to her.”

With ten years of experience as a Kerman 4-H member and a contestant in the fair?s livestock competition, Bos is allowed to enter her cattle into a special round of show.

?Since I won showmanship I get to participate in Round Robin on Oct. 12,? Bos said.

The Round Robin competition remains at the forefront of the fair?s events, as the best of the best compete for a special prize and valley-wide recognition.

?Round Robin is where the first place winners for sportsmanship get to come back and compete for a prize belt buckle by showing each different animal,? Bos said. ?I?ve competed in this before, but never won.?

Bos represented the Kerman 4-H club with a 4th place finish in the Round Robin when she showed four animals: pig, goat, beef and a cow.

Despite her success, Bos intends to replace her status as a competitor with the intention to help others in her craft as a 4-H leader.

?This has been my best year overall,? Bos said. ?I am very pleased with the results of my last year of showing at the fair and plan on coming back next year to help out as a leader of 4-H.?
