We had our Weigh In on October 20.

It was interesting seeing everyone’s calves. They looked awesome! There were 26 steers, 16 heifers and eight carcass steers.

Thank you to the Bluffton Vet Clinic for the use of your facility. Also thank you to Merial for donating the Ivomec Pour On.

Several members helped with the Hoadley Fall Supper on October 19.

On October 27 we had a Marketing / Judging Workshop. We learned about marketing and practiced judging. We also had a donkey halter breaking demonstration. The donkeys were amazing! Thanks to the Skeels family for hosting this event.

On November 17 we went the Rimbey Manor to play bingo, visit and serve snacks.

Our club is having an excellent year and we look forward to more fun and learning.
