Spring is here and the Leduc 4-H Beef club is having fun with bringing their steers to and from meetings for calf field trips.

We also kicked off at the end of March with our club judging workshop at Wrubleski’s farm. We judged horses, sheep, chickens, eggs, boots, silage and a bull. It was a lot of fun and a good experience.

Also coming up in April we have a district beef show on April 16. This will include all beef clubs from the Leduc district. It will be held at the Hay Lakes Enerplus Center. We can hardly wait to have another opportunity to show our market projects.

Right after that is our spring calf workshop on April 23. We will have a mini show and picture our steers for our sale catalogue. To start the beginning of May off we have highway cleanup. Please watch out for us on May 7 on Highway 39, west of Leduc.

I invite you to come on down and watch our district show and see which steers you like. Until next time.
