Yellowhead 4H hold sheep and demo days

Yellowhead 4H Senior Alexander Peterson shows how to tail dock a lamb during Sheep Husbandry Day on Apr. 3. He is being assisted by Ross Huber.

On April 3, the Huber’s once again hosted the annual 4H Sheep Husbandry Day; and as always, a lot of learning, fun, and great food was had by all.

Parents Greg Peterson, Ross Huber, D’Arcy Feller, and Janet Huber, were on hand to lend their expertise on grain, halters, and almost everything else to do with lambs.

Yellowhead 4H Senior, Alexander Peterson, gave a great demo on tail docking and castrating… which is not easy!

To end the day, there was a wonderful potluck lunch and an Easter egg hunt.

The Yellowhead 4H Club met again at on April 10th at the Lions Hall in Barriere for our annual Demo Day.

Judges for the event were Rhonda Buchanan, Diana Fraser, and Erin Gammell.  They said they had a difficult time trying to choose the top demonstration as all the groups performed very well.

The audience learned many new skills; from cleaning guns, to making candles from dried flower cards, to suiting up a horse western style, as 4H members provided their demonstrations.

The 4H Juniors placed as follows:

First place: Lauren Tremblay and Tyra Noble                Second place: Christine Kempter and Grace Kempter Third place: Stephen Newton and Tyler Schilling

4H Seniors placed as follows:

First place: Nicole Huber and Sarah Kate Smith                                                                                                  Second place: Spencer Pawloff and Rebecca Greenwell

The winning groups will compete at the District Finals on May 7th.

Good luck to everyone.
