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.”
