WATSONVILLE — Cabrillo College student Katie Amirsehhi has always loved animals.

The 18-year-old Aptos High alumna has been a member of 4-H since she was eleven and over the years has raised chickens, horses and hogs as well as worked with dairy cattle and lambs.

Her little sister raises goats.

At the Santa Cruz County Fair, starting Sept. 10, Amirsehhi will be entering her Hampshire pig, “Lola” into the junior livestock competition, where she will be competing against other 4-Hers, FFA students and independent youth exhibitors.

After the competition the animals will be entered in the livestock auction where members of the public can bid on the hogs, beef, lambs, goats, rabbits and chickens the students have tended.
