Garden Valley's own Kyle Willey, 13, is the winner of the Monte See Memorial Hefer Legacy Project - CONGRATULATIONS!
As part of the award he received a new belt buckle and a young calf named Miss Frankie which he will be working with in order to prepare her for the 2012 Gem/Boise County Fair and later in 2022 as a cow-calf pair.
Kyle answered this years essay question: How Has Covid-19 impacted the beef industry?
His diligent research on the topic and first hand knowledge of the business were excellent sources of real world knowledge for this young man, and he applied it well to gain his win. Miss Frankie, his prize cow, is already settling in to her new home and Kyle's mother says "He is doing a great job with her and she just loves him!".
Way to go Kyle!
We're proud of you - keep up the good work!
