Under beautiful sunny skies and warm weather, the Clandonald 4-H Multi Club held their annual Achievement Day on May 21, at the Axley Farm.

After months of working tirelessly to get their project animals ready to show, the 4-H members strutted their stuff with their animals. Members aged 9-18 sported their well-rounded steers, heifers, and 2 and 3-year-old cow/calf pairs. The show judge viewed the well-groomed animals which showed the skills the members have learned in halter breaking, grooming and clipping techniques. The conformation judge had the opportunity to view the member’s animals to see how their decisions in choosing the right animal and their skills in caring for and feeding their project animal had produced well-defined animals.

“The 4-H members are excited to be able to show their animals which they have been working so diligently on over the past seven months,” stated Heather Oddan, general leader.

The show started at 1 p.m. but the members were on-site early to give their project animal a well-deserved spa day so that their animal looked its absolute best.

The 4-H members were broken down into junior, intermediate, and senior classes with the winner of each class moving on to the overall champion.

A beef on a bun supper was provided after the show.

On May 29, the Vermilion/Clandonald 4-H Interclub will be holding their female show at the Vermilion Fair Grounds at 5 p.m. Their steer show will be on May 30 at the same location starting at 9:30 a.m. with the sale to follow at 2:30 p.m.

The Club would like to express its deepest gratitude towards their sponsors, families and supports as the events could not go on without them.
