Even with continued COVID restrictions, Hanna Rangeland 4-H has been able to continue online. 

This year, we held our monthly meetings online, did a Christmas craft as our Christmas Party, and had an online communications workshop and executive workshop. 

We wrote speeches and presentations that we recorded to be judged and participated in a District Beef/Swine Judging Clinic. 

Recently, we had a halter-making clinic where we created a halter or two for each of our calves.

We did our community service on Mon. May 10 cleaning up the old elementary school park and plans are in the works to clean up the hospital grounds. 

We had a mock achievement show and clipping clinic as well. 

The Market Beef 4-H show and sale is scheduled for Sat. June 12 and the Swine & Heifer 4-H show is scheduled for Sun. June 13. 

The show and sale will look a little different this year since we have to reduce our numbers. 

These events will be closed to the public however, a district catalogue will be published and the sale will be online for the steers. 

This year we have eight steers to sell from our club and swine members will be selling their animals privately.

Details of the online sale will be shared as the date approaches but mark it on your calendar and make space in your freezer to support a 4-H member and the future of agriculture!
