Last Monday, June 6, the Drumheller and District 4H Beef Show and Sale was held in the Delia Arena with three Beef Clubs showing female calves and cows and market steers in competition. These clubs were Delia, Hesketh-Orkney and Rumsey-Rowley. It is amazing to see the quality and size of cattle shown. In the Delia Beef Club our neighbouring young people who were showing were: In the Female competition – Camryn, Delaney, Liam and Robyn McDougald showing heifers and two and three year old cows with calf. In the Market Steer competition Jared Duncalf, Camryn, Connor, Delaney and Liam McDougald. The 4H members were also judged on the grooming of their calves and on showmanship. In Senior Grooming Robyn McDougald placed second in interclub competition and in Junior Showmanship Camryn McDougald placed first in interclub competition. Ron’s three grandnieces - Vanessa, Meah and Cadynce Richmond were members of the Rumsey/ Rowley Club. All the 4H members are to be congratulated on their excellent club work. The year 2017 will mark the 100th year of 4H in Alberta. This is an amazing organization for young people which trains them in a lot more than raising a calf or other projects. Our hats off to the members, leaders and parents of the 4H movement.
