It’s been a busy winter for the Delia 4-H Beef Club.

In December, we had our club Christmas party and meeting at the Senior Centre in Delia.

On Jan. 12, Kirby Larsen and Cole Alderdice attended a regional steer and heifer judging clinic at Powell’s farm north of Youngstown, Ab.

A speaker, Travis Hunter came and talked with us about what to look for in a steer and a heifer.

On Feb. 26, we had our club speak offs at the Delia United Church.

In Junior speeches, Elli McDougald won first and Kirby Larsen won second.

First in Junior presentations went to Carson Morlock.

For the Intermediate speeches, Camryn McDougald won first and Delaney McDougald won second.

First in Intermediate presentations was won by Cole Alderdice.

In Senior speeches, Tessa Reed won first, Connor McDougald won second, and Cole Morlock won third.

Our district speak offs took place on March 1 with Elli McDougald, Kirby Larsen, Camryn McDougald and Tessa Reed representing our club.

On March 14, we had our monthly meeting at the Delia Senior Centre and completed our 4-H diaries and discussed upcoming camps and fun 4-H travel opportunities.

On April 27 we will be having our club’s mini show at McDonald’s farm.

I look forward to seeing how my steer does and how the rest of our 4-H year goes.
