Local 4-H members finish season at Winter Fair

All of the members came home with ribbons, some came home without their steers and lambs.

We had a busy summer getting our animals ready for the annual Provincial Winter Fair (PWF), the highlight of every 4H club!

At the end of September we loaded our stock and camper trailers and headed up to Barriere for a fun filled, busy week. Our club did well!

Ali Spooner came in 3rd in showmanship, 2nd with her ewe and 1st in open.

Mackenzie Woodburn got 2nd with her market lamb, 5th in showmanship and her ewe, 3rd with a carcass and 1st for grand champion ewe with lamb at foot.

Brenna Kellington with her steer came in 6th in weight class, 1st in showmanship and 8th in championship.

Leeza Schroeder placed 3rd with her market lamb, 7th in showmanship and 6th with her steer.

Haley Schroeder came in 3rd in market lamb, 4th in showmanship and 4th with her steer.

Kayla Schroeder with her lamb placed 2nd in weight class, 3rd in showmanship and 5th in championship.

Ashly Schroeder with her ewe lamb came in 2nd in showmanship and 2nd in weight class.

The last day of the fair was the big auction. Many buyers came out to support 4H and buy some great looking animals. For those of us who sold a sheep and/or steer, it was a bit of a sad day. But with money in our pockets, we are ready to buy another animal for next year. And remember, “if you eat, you support agriculture.”

We want to thank our buyers and hope to find local buyers for next year.

Also a big “Thank You” to Second Time Around for their generous donation.
