Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying these beautiful spring days!
The March 4-H Club meeting was at our house. We talked about the five nutrients that are needed for life. They are: water, energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Then we talked about the barn decorations for Achievement Days. Did you know that there is a competition every year for the best barn decorations at Achievement Days? You should come check them out on July 5 and 6 to see all the neat barn decorations and enjoy all the 4-H shows.
To finish off the meeting, we practiced knots by tying each other up and it was fun.
The April 4-H meeting was at Mary’s house. We talked some more about the barn decorations and decided who would do each job. Then we did a game on animal parts and talked about proper judging terms to get ready for the Judging Rally.
Eckbert told us what they would be judging: swine, sheep, horse, beef, and outdoor living.
Then the younger Members watched a movie about judging and practiced judging themselves.
The Sheep weigh-in was Saturday, March 30 at the North Peace Vet Clinic. We would like to thank them for their time. Our sheep members did sheering March 31.
In May 2, our members will be going on a 4-H trip to Fraser Valley for five days. They will learn about different jobs in the agriculture industry with other 4-H members from B.C. It will be interesting to hear what they have learned.
