Yellowhead 4H hold ‘Speak & Show’ and prepare for fair

Club having a great summer and can’t wait to showcase their hard work at the upcoming fall fairs

Pictured is 4H’er Kathleen Pilatzke in her Speak and Show presentation on making dog treats for which she received a second place.

The 4H’ers are busy preparing their animals. Walking them, clipping and washing them. This is the important time of year where we have the opportunity to build the muscling and finish our animals, so we can do well at our upcoming fairs.

Our club will be showing our animals and presenting our photography at both the  NT Fall Fair, and then showing and selling our projects at the Provincial Winter Fair.

Throughout the summer we have monthly weigh-ins to track the the progress of our animals and to see what we need to adjust to help them gain more weight.

We have to work hard to make sure our animals stay cool throughout the hot summer months.

While our beef and sheep club members have been busy with their animals, our photography club members have been busy capturing the perfect picture to showcase at the fairs.

On July 28, the sheep club had their project lambs sheared. We shear them in the summer to keep them cool. It’s crazy how much wool comes off the lambs!

The Feller Family hosted the shearing and it was very generous of them.

On July 30, we had our club Speak and Show day also at the Feller’s house. It was a super fun pool party and barbecue, followed by our members presenting their Speak and Shows. A Speak and Show is where one member presents a demonstration of how to make or do something, they have to show and tell how it is done.

Hannah Feller came in first place with her Speak and Show on how to prep a lamb for fair, and Kathleen Pilatzke came in second with her Speak and Show on how to make homemade dog treats. Both were very exciting and knowledgeable. Saul Lingren also presented a speech on folk tales which was very neat.

Our club has been having a great summer and can’t wait to showcase our hard work at the upcoming fairs!
