Fair a Success for Local 4-H Club

The Barriere Yellowhead 4-H club, as well as clubs from Kamloops and Ashcroft, participated in the beef and sheep showing

Youngsters and their lambs all dressed up for the lamb dress up class.

After hours of preparation and hard work, the 63rd annual Fall Fair and Rodeo was held on Labor Day weekend. The Barriere Yellowhead 4-H club, as well as clubs from Kamloops and Ashcroft, participated in the beef and sheep showing. Yellowhead 4-H members spent hours grooming and prepping their animals prior to show. The Yellowhead 4-H float arrived at the fair grounds at 12 p.m., and the first sheep show began at 1 p.m.. Our club was quite successful in all the shows.

For the sheep showing, Tristan Brackman was reserve champion in senior showmanship, Sarah-Kate Smith had reserve champion yearling ewe, Grace Kempter the reserve champion ewe lamb, and Levi Kempter held the position of reserve champion market lamb. Halle Smith, Madison Kerslake, and Sheldon Van Sickle all made it to the junior championship class. All of our sheep members did a wonderful job, and we’re proud of them.

In the beef showing classes, Leanna Mitchell was the reserve champion Junior Showman. She also had the reserve champion Steer. Spencer Pawloff had the grand champion reserve female. Well done to both of them. All our other beef members did well in their classes, and look forward to showing at the Provincial Winter Fair.

A huge thank-you to all the 4-H parents and volunteers who helped set up the Agriplex and kept us organized.
