The Hulse brothers in Rensselaer, Mo learned the value of sharing their blessings by sharing the beef they raised in a 4-H project.
Selby, Edward, and Burton Hulse donated and delivered 500 pounds meat to the Monroe City Food Pantry.  “If everyone gets a quarter pound cheeseburger that would make 2,000 meals,” said Selby Hulse, age 12. “So, you could feed 2,000 people which is kind of cool.”

For the Hulse boys’ parents, they hope this act will have a much greater impact than just feeding people. “We believe in paying it forward to those who might need a helping hand,” said Ryan Hulse, the boys’ dad. “Teaching our kids to be loving, generous, God-fearing Christians is our number one job as parents. If each of us can do that we will leave this world a better place.”
The Hulse family worked with the United Way of the Mark Twain Area to donate the beef. They raised the steer as part of their 4-H project, and timed their donation in conjunction with 4-H Week.
For Sarah Easton, the Youth Program Associate at University of Missouri Extension who oversees the 4-H Program in Marion County, this is a beautiful thing to see during National 4-H week. “In 4-H, we are all about learning and practicing leadership and citizenship," said Sarah Easton who oversees the program in Marion County. "Selby, Edward, and Burton Hulse are a shining example of the character and values 4-H promotes and we are very proud of them."
