4-H Alberta

The Leduc 4-H Beef Club is preparing to end another great 4-H year! With achievement day coming up on June 5, the month of May is full of 4-H activity.

On April 29, the club held a calf clipping workshop to prepare their project animals for the big show and sale. On May 6, the club participated in the Alberta highway cleanup.

On May 8, the club had their last monthly meeting and May 14 is the volunteer cleanup of the local Clover Lawn hall. Despite all this, the biggest event is yet to come.

June 5 is Achievement Day and this is what the whole year leads up to. The beef show starts at 1 p.m. but 4-H members will be at the Leduc Recreation Centre, where the show will be held, long before that. The members must wash, dry, comb, fluff, and spray their steers and heifers to put on the finishing touches before showing their cattle for judges.

At 7 p.m. the members will auction off their steers to anyone looking for Grade A Alberta beef and excellent advertising.

Both the show and sale are open to the public, so if you are interested in buying one of the steers, you are considering 4-H for your own child and would like to learn more or you just would like to come watch the 4-H members top off another great year, we would love to see you there.
