On Saturday, October 29, the Leduc 4-H beef club started the 100th year of 4-H in Alberta by weighing and vaccinating the steers and heifers that will be used by the 4-H members this year. Mr. Larry Fecho, who lives just outside of Leduc, generously donated his time and scales for the event.

About 20 calves are being raised by the 4-H members for this 4-H year. The calves, which weigh about 500 to 800 pounds now, will be sold on achievement day in June, weighing 1,100 to 1,400 pounds. After the weigh in, the club gathered for their member elections. Among the positions the club elected for were president, vice president, treasurer, club historian, club reporter, secretary, and club parliamentarian.

More recently, on November 14, the club gathered for their monthly meeting. At the meeting they made plans for their annual Christmas party, and discussed fundraising ideas. The club is also looking for judges for achievement day. If you feel that you are willing and able to judge one of our 4-H categories, please contact Andrea Knull at: 780-719-7316, for more details or to offer your services.
