Blue Valley Ranch donates 50 tons of hay to 4-H kids

KREMMLING — Blue Valley Ranch recently donated more than 50 tons of hay to livestock 4-Hers in Grand County.

In order to qualify for the free hay, 4-H members filled out an application about their current hay use, their citizenship in their communities, and how a hay donation would help them financially with their livestock projects. The kids were also asked how they planned to “pay it forward” and help others if they were selected to receive free hay.

Last week the hay was picked up and delivered for use by hungry 4-H steers, horses, sheep, and goats.

Caitlyn Taussig, Grand County 4-H Coordinator, wanted to thank Blue Valley and their employees.

“This was such a wonderful donation from Blue Valley,” she said. “They called us with the idea and we really appreciate their support of 4-H and the community.”

Sher Steuben manages Blue Valley Ranch and offered the donation to 4-H.

“We are so glad to help, it was heartwarming to see the gratitude from the kids,” Steuben said.
