The Millarville Stockland 4-H Beef Club had a great 4-H on Parade from May 29th to June 2nd at the Stampede Grounds. We participated in sheep, steer and female classes as well as grooming and judging competitions, a fun tug-o-war on Saturday night and our big sale on Sunday. Thanks to all our buyers who came out and supported our club.

On June 12th we held our diary meeting. Thanks to Kathleen Cranswick for helping the kids fill these out correctly. A big “Congratulations” to Kathleen and Don Arkes who got married on June 8th.

We held our awards banquet on June 14th at the Millarville Race Track Hall. We had a delicious roast beef dinner. Thanks to Arlene Visser for organizing the dinner and to Cargil for donating the great Alberta Beef. Most of our awards were from Achievement Day but some new ones were Junior Record Book – Finn Blatz. Intermediate Record Book – Shaelynn Brogden. Senior Record Book – Cassidy Barnert. Our Best Effort Award went to Ethan Beck. Sportsmanship Award – Danielle Bradish (honourable mention to Rebecca Zutz). Efficiency Award – Danielle Bradish. Best Buddy Award – Carlie Meyer. Thank you to our new and old trophy sponsors. Special thank you’s went to Dawn Jardie and Angie Dawson for helping us win 3rd place in the barn display competition at 4-H on Parade and Dan French for finding us a club trailer and sponsors (a huge thank you to Bar T5, Riley’s Reprographics and Teradan Farms).

Our club starts up again in October. If anyone would like more information on becoming a sponsor or joining our club, please call Susan Jeffery at 403-931-3132. Have a great summer everyone!
