Nicholas Meat Supports 4-H & FFA Youth

September 20, 2021

Each summer, 4-H and FFA youth exhibit all types of animals – everything from sheep and goats to pigs and cattle at county fairs across Pennsylvania. Participation in such a project helps these young people develop life skills such as responsibility, respect and care for animals, industry knowledge and self-confidence.  

And, each summer, Nicholas Meat extends support to local FFA and 4-H exhibitors by attending fair auctions to purchase their market animals. This year the company participated in auctions at the Lycoming, Bradford, Clinton, Tioga and Centre County fairs.  

“Nicholas Meats has been a great supporter of the Clinton County 4-H program for years and we cannot thank them enough,” said Wayne Bechdel, Clinton County 4-H volunteer.  

In many ways, the 4-H motto of Making the Best Better is much like Nicholas Meat’s belief that whatever we do today, we can do better tomorrow. Nicholas Meat is proud to participate where we can at local fairs to support 4-H and FFA members. We see the value these programs bring for our kids when they learn by doing and have a goal for which to strive. 

Congratulations 4-H and FFA members for your accomplishments this year! Take a look at this short video to see some of the youth that participated in showing this year.
