Graig and Terry FergusonCraig and Terry Ferguson became involved with the Pocahontas 4-H program when their daughter, Brooke, joined the Swan Lake Cloveteers in 1993.   Some of Brooke’s first projects were in the cattle and horse department. They were both interested in these project areas and became active on these livestock committees. Craig helped with cattle weigh-in every year regardless of the weather. He also helped implement the bucket calf class, encouraged the Cattlemen to sponsor trophies and buckles that were auctioned off at the Pocahontas County Cattlemen’s banquet. Part of these auction proceeds are donated to the fair board.   
Craig has taken care of marketing the fair show cattle for several years. He lined up the trucking and helped with the drug papers as the cattle from our auction go to market. A dark cutter insurance program was started to help buyers and exhibitors in case of grading problems with the packing plant. We have sold bucket calves to other 4-H members to get them started in the cattle show. 
Terry has been on the horse committee for several years doing whatever needs to be done at both the 4-H show and the open show. Terry was a co-leader of the Swan Lake Cloveteers during the time her daughter was in
4-H. She has judged horse shows since 1992. She served one term on the Extension Council.   
Even though their children are out of 4-H Craig and Terry still are wonderful volunteers helping in the livestock division of the 4-H
