in Animals/Business 45 views

VALLEJO — Buddy the steer was a bit aggravated prior to Thursday’s Solano County Fair Livestock Show. His 16-year-old handler Maritza Partida simply stared into his eyes and his anger immediately subsided.

“I just try and get him to look at me and listen to me because there is a lot of noise all-around,” said Partida, representing Dixon Ridge 4-H.

Asked if she is a “steer whisperer,” Partida just laughed with a big smile and said, “I wish.”

Partida was one of six 4-H Club and Future Farmers of America youth participating this year with their beef cattle. There were many more participants in poultry (chickens, quail and turkeys), rabbits, swine, goats and sheep with judging taking place inside and outside the livestock center.

The unanimous vote was part of the board’s consent agenda and was brought to the supervisors for consideration by Chairman John Vasquez, a supporter of Superior Farms, the largest lamb processing facility on the West Coast. There were no comments.

It pushes back against an agriculture overtime law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown in 2016, and will reduce the pay of herders by as much as 50%. That increase, advocates of using the federal standard claim, was an unintended result of the law.

A bear crashed into their backyard, attacking and killing one of their family goats. Some were frightened.

“I know my dad was, but I wasn’t because I kept my distance. And it didn’t seem like it was going to attack us so it’s going to be fine,” Flores said.
