As an active 4-H member, Maria White is getting her animals ready for the Stevens County Fair. But this summer, she has taken on another small project. Maria loves caring for her animals, including her kittens, rabbits and 4-H project calves. That's why she is the perfect candidate to take care of a little calf that needs extra attention.
