Trevose resident places third in PA Farm Show Skill-a-thon

Taralyn Sinn placed third for her knowledge of rabbits

Young livestock enthusiasts across the state competed in the 2021 Pennsylvania Farm Show Skill-a-thon, testing their general knowledge of livestock and poultry management.

Skill-a-thon competitors were given a written test of their knowledge of raising 10 species: draft horses, sheep, swine, beef, meat goats, dairy cattle, dairy goats, alpacas, poultry and rabbits. Competitors were asked a series of questions on topics such as quality assurance and health; meat identification; equipment identification and use; feeds; feeding and nutrition; and management.

The competition was designed to recognize and encourage youth who have acquired fundamental knowledge of livestock management. Competitors were judged in two age divisions: Division I (youth born in 2001-2005) and Division II (youth born in 2006-2011).

Trevose’s Taralyn Sinn earned third place in Division II for her knowledge of rabbits.
