Hi! I’m Rylee Charbonneau with the Byemoor Beef 4H Club. We’ve had a busy spring working hard with our projects and doing community events.
Some things that we’ve done are mock achievement day where we practice for show day, highway clean up, went to a grooming and clipping clinic in Stettler where we learned how to make our calves look their best, helped cook Mother’s Day breakfast with the Halkirk Elks, and had our Achievement Days!
Our district Female day was May 23 in Stettler and it was a good day. There are four clubs that come to the show.
We started by judging heifers and then giving oral reasons. Then our cleaver kids got to show their calves and they did a great job!
We then got to show our yearling heifers and cow calf pairs. Our judge for the day was Scott Anderson and he picked Addison Charbonneau’s heifer to win our club. She also won 2-year-old cow calf pair.
May 24 was our big steer day. Our club had 10 market steers this year.
We started the day with steer judging and then showed our steers. We had a grooming competition and Mackenzie Skeels was our judge.
Our showmanship judge was Ben Farrant and our confirmation judge was Scott Brady.
We had our first live sale in three years and we had lots of people come out to bid and watch the sale.
Our club winners were:
Grand champion steer – Cole Charbonneau and Burmac Mechanical 2000 was the buyer.
Reserve champion steer – Addison Charbonneau and Benchmark Commodities was the buyer.
We want to say the biggest thank you to all our buyers, bidders and sponsors for making the year a big success! 4H is so fun with my friends and I’m so glad to be part of it!
