Hanna District 4-H Show and Sale hosted at Crossroads Centre

Like any show, members including these two Cleaver members from the East Sounding Creek club, Deflin Westerlund and Cooper Norris prep their livestock by washing, drying, brushing, spraying, combing and more to make them look their best once they step foot in the ring. ECA Review/T.Huxley

Luckily, COVID restrictions were lifted last minute and the Hanna 4-H District show and sale could continue in a closer to normal fashion. 

We were able to have a 4-H show for the steers, females and swine with Hanna Rangeland, East Sounding Creek and Dryland Multi-Club competing. 

The steers were shown on Sat. June 12 and then sold later that day. 

The District Grand Champion Market Steer went to Keegan Connors from Dryland Multi-club and the Reserve Grand Champion Market Steer went to Garrett Murray from East Sounding Creek. 

For the Hanna Rangeland club, Grand Champion Market Steer went to Grace Scheler and Reserve Champion Market Steer went to Callie Mashon.   

All 4-H members received excellent prices for their steers and we would like to sincerely thank all those who bought steers and so generously supported 4-H. 

The Oyen Crossroads centre was brimming with activity over the weekend of June 12 – 13 as the Hanna 4-H District clubs of East Sounding Creek, Dryland Multi and Hanna Rangeland showed off their prized projects in the show ring. Seen here is Hannah Wagstaff of the East Sounding Creek Club in front showing her black yearling heifer during the female show grand champion round amongst all clubs on Sunday. This animal was the reserve grand champion winner of the Sunday show as judged by Barclay Smith. Aside from the usual beef projects, a few members tried their hand at raising swine which were shown off in the ring as a separate class. ECA Review/T.Huxley

The females (beef) and swine were shown on June 13.  At the club level, Lacey Miller won the Grand Champion Heifer and Grand Champion 2-year-old female. 

Club Grand Champion 3-year-old female and Club Grand Champion Herd went to Taylor Mashon.  

Callie Mashon won District Reserve Champion Carcass and Lacey Miller won District Reserve Grand Champion 2-year-old cow/calf.  

From the Hanna Rangeland club swine show, Colby Scott was Grand Champion and Anna Raugust was the Reserve Champion. 

Colby Scott won the District 4-H Intermediate Judging Competition. 

Everyone did very well showing and grooming their calves and pigs! 

Congratulations on a successful year.  Hopefully, everything for 4-H will be back to normal for next year!
