KILJ presents Ag Youth Awards at Lee County Fair

Trey and Maddie Wellman, Houghton, Iowa

This year our award winners in Lee County are twins Trey and Maddie Wellman whose parents are Deb and Dusty Wellman of rural Houghton, Iowa. Both have grown up in the show ring mostly showing cattle.  They own cows and embryo donor cows, operating their own breeding business. Both have been active participants in 4-H and in the Central Lee FFA Chapter. Maddie was their FFA chapter’s president and Trey was vice-president. They are both members of the Lee County 4-H Teen Council. The twins graduated this spring from Central Lee High School and are headed to Iowa State University. Trey was a page in the Iowa Legislature. He would like to combine his love of politics and his agriculture knowledge and plans to major in political science and ag policy. Maddie plans to major in agronomy and animal science. Maddie is also the outgoing Lee County Fair Queen.  KILJ’s news director Theresa Rose made the Ag Youth Award presentation at opening ceremonies at the Lee County Fair July 6.
