PULASKI, Pa. — Kacy Scott knows her animals.

The West Middlesex eighth-grader has parlayed her knowledge and experience into winning performances at the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. She came home from this year’s January event with top animals in both the sheep and goat competitions.

She’s been a member of the Baby Beef & Lamb of Mercer County 4-H Club since she was 8 years old.

Kacy, daughter of Kenneth and Connie Scott of Gearhart Road, has been raising and exhibiting animals for the annual state show for the last four years, and has brought home titles before.

“She’s done quite well,” her mother said.

Her father has been showing sheep at the state show since 1980.

At 14, Kacy took show-winning animals to this year’s event and came back with more blue ribbons.

In the Junior Sheep Show, Kacy exhibited champions in two categories and walked away with awards for the Merino Champion Ewe:, the Merino Reserve Champion Ewe, the Rambouillet Champion Ram, Rambouillet Champion Ewe and Rambouillet Reserve Champion Ewe.

“She was well-pleased when she got home,” her mother said.

She’s been showing sheep at the show for four years.

She began exhibiting her Boer goats at the show last year, and, this year, came home with the award for the Reserve Champion Percentage Boer Doe, not in the junior division but in the Open Boer Goat Show. She won the Champion Doe Kid in the junior Boer show.
