Connie Sawyer, 9, leads her 4-month-old Jersey cow Buttercup on a halter at the family farm in Limington. Sawyer, who started raising cows at age 7, belongs to the Cumberland County All-Star 4-H Dairy Club. She said the hobby is both a social and learning experience. “I like being with the other 4-Hers that are at the fairs,” she said. “It’s fun to hang out with them and walk cows with them.”
