On Sunday, December 4, the Leduc 4H Beef Club had their annual Christmas party at Clover Lawn community hall. Included in the party were both a public speaking workshop in preparation for the public speaking competition on January 28, and a workshop for the record books.

The record books help the 4-H members keep track of their animals’ weight gain and feed costs, as well as being judged at the end of the 4-H year. Each clubs best record books move on to districts, and those winners go to regionals.

The Leduc club record book winners in 2015/16 were announced at Sunday’s party. They were: Kennedy Wrubleski (first place, senior market steer book), Cherese Eidick (first place, intermediate market steer book, first place, intermediate heifer book, first place, Intermediate second old cow book), Rebekah Knull (first place, junior market steer book, first place, junior heifer book) and Monika Knull (first place, senior heifer book).

The club also held their monthly meeting at the party, as well as more traditional events such as a hot dog roast and sleds pulled by quads. The next club event is on January 9 when they will hold a monthly meeting focused on the upcoming public speaking competition.

If you would be interested in judging the public speaking competition on January 28, please contact Andrea Knull at 780-719-7316.
