The Bluffton 4-H Club continues to have a great year!

The Bluffton 4-H Club continues to have a great year!

In 4-H our motto is ‘learn to do by doing.’ We are learning lots about beef cattle with our steer, heifer and cow/calf projects. Public speaking and community service are also important parts of 4-H.

On January 25, some of our members attended the judging sessions at Camrose Bull Congress.

On February 13 our club helped take down tables and chairs at the Rimbey Women’s Conference. Regional multi species judging was held at Lakedell on February 15. We judged horses, beef steers, dairy heifers, fleece, goats, hay, chips, saddles, shoes, and identified seeds as well as kitchen items. Congratulations to Tim Trenson who placed first for juniors.

Zones Public speaking was on February 23 and everyone did awesome. The people who placed from our club were: Tim Trenson- 2nd junior, Sylvia Trautman – 1st intermediate, Leah Trenson- 3rd intermediate and Clinton Steeves- 1st senior.

The first and second placing moved to district where Tim placed fourth, Sylvia placed first and Clinton placed first. Clinton also placed second at Regionals so he will be attending Provincials. Congratulations Clinton!!

We had our farm tour on March 2. Everyone’s calves are looking great. Thank you to Dan and Karen Skeels who hosted.

On March 28 and 29 we helped Rimbey Neighborhood Place with Powerful Moms and Super Dads.

We look forward to seeing you at our show and sale on May 11 and 12 at the Rimbey Agriplex.
