Falun 4-H Beef Club

A new year and another step until our club’s sale day. Last year the club was very fortunate to have a great turn out and overall wonderful time.

Halfway through the season and the club is starting to gain speed as we start many fun events such as highway clean up and public speaking. Whenever 4-H is talked about the public speaking event is always mentioned. It’s a great way for members to develop as a speaker and as a person. Members will write about something they are passionate about or present it in a slideshow presentation. Our club will be holding this event on February 22. As members prepare their speech they also begin to train their projects, which have been ongoing since September.

At our 4-H meetings we have learned about diaries , and even how to pick the perfect calf, while the Cleaver kids have also had fun and learned what 4-H really is about. After well-deserved holidays it’s time to kick it into high gear with show day just around the corner. Show day was very successful last year and a special thank you goes to all the buyers. Without you 4-H would not be the same.

We hope to see old and new buyers at the sale in May with more details to come. That’s all for now folks, we hope everyone had great holidays and hope to see you at one of our events in the future.
