Hello! My name is Malia Arpon and I am student in the Sunny Hills FFA Program in suburban Fullerton, California. This my second year in the program and I was fortunate to raise a market steer.

He has been shown in two livestock showmanship shows (Hillside Winter Classic and La Habra Community Citrus Fair) and will be shown again at the Orange County Fair in July. With Fair around the corner, I need to find a buyer who is willing to purchase him before auction. Please contact me with any questions at maliaarpon@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from anyone!
