Brothers Brody and Kyser Nemecek grew up surrounded by farm animals and a show ring. Even though theyre still young, theyve already translated their years of competition experience into leadership skills, guiding others in Allen County and the surrounding area.
So far this summer, Brody, age 16, has taught swine showmanship clinics at each of the three 4-H counties in the Southwind Extension District (Allen, Bourbon and Neosho). He worked with one family in Bourbon County, which has a very competitive fair, and helped a first-year 4-H contestant take home a fifth place finish.
Its really fun to see (other 4-Hers) go out. Theyre having a good time because we helped teach them how to show, Brody said. When they see success, it makes me feel good.
