SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Third-grader Jaidyn Gilbert is no stranger to the 4-H program. The daughter of Todd and Margaret Gilbert, Jaidyn has watched her two older brothers, Jordan and Trevor, go through the 4-H program.
Jordan has already completed 10 years, while Jaidyn will spend two years in the program with Trevor. Margaret is the leader of the Whitley County Dairy Beef/Feeder Calf Club.
Jaidyn attends South Whitley Elementary School. Her projects this year include bicycle, sewing, dairy beef, feeder calves and a beef heifer.
â€śIâ€™m really excited about seeing all the other first-year members in the feeder calf club just so I know Iâ€™m not the only one.â€ť said Jaidyn.
Feeder calves being her favorite project, Jaidyn has already begun working with her calf, whom she named Licker.
