There is noth­ing bet­ter than Al­berta beef…well…noth­ing bet­ter than Al­berta 4-H beef.

The Gle­ichen-Cluny, Stan­dard and Hus­sar 4H Show and Sale goes this Sun­day, May 24. The spring tra­di­tion brings out the bright­est 4-Her’s, the best qual­ity steers around that fetch some of the best prices thanks to great com­mu­nity sup­port­ers.

“We would like to ex­tend our per­sonal in­vi­ta­tion to you and your busi­ness to at­tend our show and sale and be a part of a strong 4-H move­ment in our com­mu­nity,” said sale as­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Ge­off Fraser in an in­vi­ta­tion let­ter

The show be­gins at 10 a.m. and the sale is at 3 p.m. This year there are 34 calves on the block, up from last year. The show will take place at the Hus­sar Arena.

If last year’s event is any gauge of what kind of show and sale it will be, it should be a great year for the club. The fundrais­ing 4-H calf fetched an as­ton­ish­ing $4.30, and was pur­chased by CJS Agro ser­vices. Last year 29 calves were sold.

Grand Cham­pion of the show was mem­ber Hai­ley Mor­ri­son’s 1,261 pound Here­ford steer which was pur­chased by West­ern Chev Olds for $3.40 per pound. Re­serve Grand Cham­pion was mem­ber Ciara San­dum with her high­est gain­ing club, 1346 pound Here­ford steer pur­chased by Deer Val­ley Im­ple­ments for $2.80 per pound.

Af­ter the sale, buy­ers are in­vited to a roast beef din­ner at the Hus­sar Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. This din­ner is for mem­bers, buy­ers, of­fi­cials and their spouses. It is fol­lowed by an awards cer­e­mony.

Fraser says there is al­ways great sup­port from Drumheller busi­nesses for the sale.

“We feel the kids have, once again put in a lot of time and ef­fort in their projects and a good sale is a nice pat on the back for a job well done,” he said in a let­ter.

He en­cour­ages res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the area to come to the an­nual show and sale and lend sup­port to the 4H in Hai­ley Mor­ri­son’s Here­ford steer was the grand Cham­pion at last year’s Hus­sar 4-H Show and Sale. th­ese com­mu­ni­ties, which is well and thriv­ing.
