Falun East 4-H Beef Club update

May 4 is highway clean-up for the Falun club

Hello from Falun East 4-H Beef Club!

As the snow breaks and the grass grows, things are starting to ramp up for the club and on our farms!

First we had a clipping demo on March 16 at Meyer’s Poplar Grove Angus Farm where we learned great techniques from Megan Bond for getting our cattle ready for show.

On March 23 some of the club helped serve cake, coffee and clean up dishes at a senior’s supper at the Falun hall.

Mini-show was on April 6 at the Lakedell Arena. Our ring master was Ashley Schmidt, she was a past 4-H member for nine years. The members and cleavers walk and showed their calves with Ashley, giving tips to each member for show day. It was great practise and a great confidence builder for us not to mention the perfect social outing for our calves.

On May 4 it is highway clean-up for the club, please drive slowly when passing through and give a honk to show your support. We love it.

The big Achievement Show and Sale Day is on May 13/2019 at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds and it’s just around the corner. Both the members of Falun East and Rosebrier 4-H Clubs are working hard to get their calves ready for show by: leading, brushing, washing and clipping.

Please stop by and look at the calves and say hi to the members. We’d love to see you.
