Last year’s Grand Champion for the Drumheller and District 4-H Show and Sale was McKenzie Paget’s 1,476 pound Angus, purchased by Triton Land Services.
For some members, this year will be their last show.
Brianna Heck, who is an 18 year old Drumheller and District 4H member, will be showing her last steer, Tonto, on Monday, June 8.
“It is definitely going to be weird not being in 4H next year. I really enjoy showing and working with cattle . I am probably going to miss that the most.
As for Tonto, Heck’s approximately 1,450 pound steer, has been easy to care for.
“He is pretty laid back and easy going, which makes it pretty easy to lead him around.”
This will be Heck’s 9th year in 4H. She reflects on what the best thing she has learned from 4H.
“I used to be a really shy kid, and 4H helped me to break out of my shell with public speaking.”
