Roger Kenny grew up near the Cumberland, Iowa area with his two brothers, Bruce and Keith. Roger was a 4-H member growing up and exhibited cattle and hogs at the county fair. Judy grew up in the Schaller, Iowa area with her three sisters, Rosalie, Sharan, and LaRae.
Roger and Judy raised their three children - Brian, Brenda, and Kurt on a livestock farm near Schaller. The Kenny family raised hogs, sheep, and cattle and took great pride in their livestock production. They were leaders of the Eden Hot Shots 4-H Club in Sac County for at least 10 years while their children were 4-H members and exhibited sheep, cattle, and hogs.
Roger and Judy opened their home to their 4-H club and hosted the meetings in their basement. They were also joint livestock superintendents at the Sac County Fair for over 20 years. For many years Roger and Judy were the herdsmanship judges at the fair.
Roger and Judy loved the fair and watching their grandchildren show their cattle and sheep that were home raised. Judy received the Sac County 4-H Award in 1994 and Roger received the same award in 2008 because of their many contributions to the Sac County 4-H program.
