Little International 2013

April 22, 2013

The little International was held Saturday, April 20. Despite the near freezing temperature and gusty wind, students diligently carried out their showmanship responsibilities with smiling faces. The warmth of family and friends looking on helped to make the day a success. The day's activities started at the Don Scott farms and finished on main campus. This was the "Little I's" 99th event, brought to you by Saddle and Sirloin Club. Saddle and Sirloin at The Ohio State University is celebrating 102 years of tradition since its founding in February 1911 as the first college organization of its kind. Special Awards:

  • Saddle & Sirloin Uncles: Dr. Dustin Boler and Mr. Ron Cramer. From the program: "Dr. Dustin Boler has served as an advisor for 2 years taking on numerous responsibilities such as helping with farm Science Review, Lamb Show, and Little I. Along with being respected by students and staff members, you can always count on his sense of humor, outgoing personality, and encouraging advice. One of his favorite S&S activities is participating in and developing creative, top secret recipes for the ham curing contest. He has been a true asset to not only the club, but the department and we are thankful for his time, dedication and support. Mr. Ron Cramer serves as the Meat Lab Manager and has been a valuable asset within the Ham & Corned Beef contest over the years. Ron dedicates his time to help students and staff members with curing and cooking their products along with developing their labels. Additionally, this year he assisted the Meat Science Club with the preparation of the pulled pork and brisket for the Little I banquet. Ron's generosity, wisdom, and friendly personality are highly looked upon within the club and department and we are greatly appreciative of his endless support and dedication."
  • Honorary Member: Dave Howell. From the program: "David Howell is a full-time farmer from Danville, OH. In addition to caring for his 2 kids (Linsey & Justin) Dave is kept busy with their diversified grain & livestock operation. Somehow he still found time to donate to the club and played a key role in the running of the lamb show. Dave used his knowledge of getting his own kids to the ring on time to persevere through every class and organize the make-up area, keeping the show running smoothly. Thank you for all your help David."
