    It was a proud day for all the Lakedell 4-H participants and their families at this year’s annual show and sale.

    The show, lunch and auction were held this past weekend at the Lakedell Ag Society complex April 20, in the rural community west of Wetaskiwin.

    The 4-H kids had the chance to show off the animals they have been raising, some in preparation to be sold to the highest bidder.

    At this year’s show, grand champion steer was awarded to Tanya Schmidt and her steer, Sir. Reserve grand champion was given to Tony Schmidt, and his steer, Kodak. Grand Champion Female was awarded to Austin Schmidt and his heifer, Georgina. Reserve grand champion was given to Tony Schmidt.

    Following the show, there was a lunch held for all the participants, spectators and potential bidders.

    At this year’s auction, many of the animals were sold for more than $2 per pound, with the grand champion steer sold for $6.20 per pound.

    This year, the Lakedell 4-H Club’s club calf project was auctioned off with all the proceeds going to the Wetaskiwin Hospital Foundation, for the palliative care centre.
