Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a great June!
Sara and I have been spending quite a bit of time with our animals and they are all doing pretty good. The steers have grown lots and are really quite down. We have washed them as well, they have done extremely well. Sara & I also weighed our steers not too long ago, they did very well. Sara’s steer weighed 1200 pounds and my steer weighed 1300 pounds. I am pulling my heifer out due to the fact she is pregnant. We have been practicing leading the steers and Sara’s heifer around the barnyard. We have been brushing them; the steers have been loving it.
We had a Club 4-H meeting on June 26th at Walt & Val Hedges Ranch: We talked about what we can take for barn decorations which was limited. Also talked about ideas and what we can use for barn setup. We are changing to blue shirts this year instead of yellow.
I am very happy with how well Rowdy, Ryder and Joelle have done with their animals. Their animals are extremely quiet, they can have new people crawling around them, the heifers even have kids sitting their backs has there standing up. Their animals are very nice, the steers sure have grown lots they are now 1300 pounds-ish. They have put a lot of hard work into their animals and I’m very proud of them, keep up the great work.
4-H District Achievement Days are going to be a lot different this year; we are not allowed to use the Fall Fair Grounds so we are having Achievement Days in Dawson Creek. On July 15 & 16 2023 at Dawson Creek Exhibition Grounds, the show starts at 9 am on both days. The sale is on Sunday at 5:00PM for all the animals that are going for market. It is an online as well as a in person, if you want meat and can’t come to Dawson on that day then you can go online for it, on the VJV Dawson Creek Website, there is also a supper there for people that come that starts at 4:00PM.
