4-H Achievement day a success

Leduc 4-H Beef Club wraps up season in style June 5

On June 5, the Leduc 4-H beef club finished the year off with their achievement day, the biggest event of the 4-H year.

On achievement day, members put on a beef show including steer shows, heifer shows, cow-calf pairs, and showmanship and grooming. This year the grand champion steer was Root Beer, owned by Monika Knull, while the reserve champion steer was Buzz, owned by Rebekah Knull.

The club would also like to extend a huge “thank you” to all of the judges who took time out of their day to judge the animals, Grassy Lane meats, who provided butchering for the steers, and of course, all of the buyers of the steers who make it possible for the members to continue in 4-H.

All of us in the club would also like to thank anyone who contributed in any other way, from donating money and silent-auction items, to the Leduc Rec Centre which rents a facility to us year after year.

We all look forward to another great 4-H year starting up in the fall.
