Winfield and District 4-H Beef Club


The Winfield Beef club started off the New Year with our calf tour on January 15.

All the calves looked fantastic and it will be a tough competition come show day. On January 28, some members went to bull congress in Camrose and had a great time making new friends and learning new things.

The following Sunday the club had our communications activity. This was our first year of having the option of doing presentations and it went really well. Presentations are when the members put together a slide show with pictures, and information based on the topic they chose. Cole Schwengler, Miranda Wirch, Layne Magnuson, and Tanner Magnuson all did presentations this year. The speeches also went very well and everyone had a very well put together speech.

The placings for the speeches and presentations were as follows: Juniors: First was Austin Schwengler, second was Kwade Biever, and third was Jesse Mitchell.

Intermediates: First was Nicole Groeneveld, and second was Cheyenne Schwengler. Tanner Magnuson got first for his presentation.

Seniors: First was Brandon Leeder, second was James Seely, and 3rd was David Seely. Miranda Wirch and Layne Magnuson got first for their presentation and Cole Schwengler got second with his presentation.

Amy Seely, a senior in the club, did a fantastic job emceeing for our public speaking!

Winfield 4-H Beef Club would like to thank Altalink for their generous support and for sponsoring our public speaking.

Zones public speaking was held at Alder Flats Hall at 1 p.m. on February 26. Speakers moving on to district public speaking (in Ponoka on March 12) from our club will be: Nicole Groeneveld (int), Cheyenne Schwengler (int) and Kwade Biever (jr).

The 4-H junior winter camp is March 3 to 5 at the Battle Lake 4-H Center.

Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day and a wonderful Family day.
