    Crook County 4-H Clover

    Todd Catterson was nominated for Volunteer of the month because he is A great leader and I appreciate him. Todd has been involved in 4-H off and on since he was a kid. He was involved in 4-H for 8 years raising pigs as a youth and involved again when his son Cade started raising 4-H pigs as a 4th grader. He also helps his kids (Cade, Megan, and Macy) with their show pig business called Triple C Show Pigs. They have 5 sows and they sell show pigs to families all along the West Coast. Three years ago, Todd and his friend Craig Ostrander, became 4-H leaders and started a club called Country Roots Swine

    Club. He believes the life lessons that youth learn through 4-H make youth better citizens, leaders, and communicators.

    Thank you Todd for your great leadership!
