Lakedell 4H Beef Club has had a busy February!

We started off the month with club speeches on February 3, and I have to say, there were so many amazing speeches (and one great presentation).

The next weekend, everybody got to learn more about judging at multispecies judging at Lakedell Ag Centre. We participated in a fun judging workshop in the morning, enjoyed some delicious hot dogs and hamburgers, and then judged a great variety of things, including cats and coconuts!

A couple of days later, we had our February meeting. It was such a beautiful night; we had a very short meeting and then had fun outside! Towards the end of February, Mercedes, Jillian, and Raeanna from our club participated in the district publics speaking competition in Wetaskiwin. Mercedes placed first and Jillian third for Intermediates! Raeanna won third for Juniors.

Wow! That was such a fun, busy month! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Show and Sale on April 22nd.
