Delia 4H Beef Club News
mini show on Sunday, April 17 at 3MC Stock Farms. We began our day by each member leading their steers or heifers into the riding arena where they tied them up to be used for a show clinic later in the day. We had two members of the Shiloh Cattle Company show team Blake Morton and Alisha Minchau, out to put on our grooming, judging and show ring clinics. They put on a fantastic grooming demonstration for the members and their parents and answered any questions we had. I think everybody could walk away saying they learned something new from these two. We then took a break to enjoy a delicious beef on a bun lunch. We carried on with our day and did a judging exercise with all the members from seniors to cleavers. Next up we moved outside to a ring for our show practice. We started with the seniors and worked our way through everybody right down to our cleavers (with the help of their parents of course!!). The McDougald families are very gracious to host these event for us each year. They allow us to use their scale and get all our animals weighed. The Hanna UFA Farm & Ranch Store donated some grooming products to our club which will be used for Show & Sale day.
We would like to take this opportunity to send a special Thank You to Alisha Minchau, Blake Morton, The McDougald families and Darcy Tudor along with the Hanna UFA Farm & Ranch Store. Thanks for making our day so successful!!
