125th ANNUAL ALLEN COUNTY FAIR
The Jaro family learned a reality of 4-H life when their youngest, Teghen, now 10, sold her first pig, Cocoa Joe, at the Allen County Fair Livestock Auction three years ago. She spent two hours saying goodbye to the Duroc hog before it was loaded into a stock trailer.
Later, when Teghen and her mom went to Bollings Meat Market in Moran to pick up the check, Sharon Bolling gushed: That pig tasted so good. It was the best meat. When Sharon saw Teghens eyes begin to swell, she reversed course: I mean, hes on vacation. Hes at the beach, drinking a mai tai.
But Teghen understood and she bravely held back her tears until she was back in the car.
