Games and rides are some common thoughts that come to mind when thinking of the Montana State Fair, but 4H member Emily Berg enjoys the fair for different reasons.

Emily will be showing and selling her lambs at the Junior Livestock Show next week after the months of hard work she put in to raise the lambs.

Berg explained, "My favorite part about taking the animals to the fair part is all the little kids that come to the barn with their day cares or their little youth groups and they're always like, 'Oh my God, they're so cute!' and I just love seeing their reactions of how they are, and a lot of parents and a lot of people who aren't familiar with livestock. It's so funny to watch them come and see the animals, too."

This year will be Emily's last year attending the Junior Livestock Show before she starts her college career at Montana State University in the fall.

Her nine years of experience with 4H has allowed her to know exactly what career field she wants to pursue.

Berg said, "My goal is to become a 4H Extension Agent when I'm older. My favorite part of the leadership project is being able to go and help those younger kids and so I definitely want to do that when I'm older because I want to influence as many kids as I can with their 4H projects because it's so rewarding. I want to give them the experience that I had during my time in 4H."

The Junior Livestock Show begins Tuesday the 28th and ends on Friday July 31st.
