NEW ULM - Brock Miller carried on the tradition set by his sisters in the Brown County Fair's 4-H Sheep Show this year.

Miller's twin older sisters are Jazmyne and Chantel, who racked up a lot of purple ribbons over the years. Brock won his share, but Jazmyne or Chantel were usually at the top of the showmanship list.

This year their 4-H careers are behind them and Brock, 17, is filling in very well.

Brock has honed his showmanship skills over the 12 years he has shown sheep.

"Before I was old enough to show in 4-H, we did a lot of open shows," he said. "I've had a lot of practice.

Brock is the son of Daryl and Jolene Miller of rural Hanska, and is an independent competitor in 4-H.
