2017 Timber Trails and Foothills Beef 4-H livestock show and sale

Toni Lucas - On Monday May 29, the Timber Trails and Foothills Beef 4-H Clubs hosted their 2017 beef and sheep Achievement Day at the Horseshoe Pavilion. This annual event serves as a way to highlight a year of work for both clubs.  The day began with an introduction of the two clubs, as well as the Cleaver Kids category for children aged 6-8. The Cattle Show and Lamb Show started giving all the members a chance to be in the ring showing their stock before judges who judging not only the quality of the stock raised, but the attitude of the presenters.  After the judging the kids and stock had the chance to relax and eat before the livestock sale.

This is a bittersweet day for the 4H participants.  After a year of work, sometimes more in the case of breeding projects, their stock is purchased and sold.  What the kids learn in 4H is numerous and varied.  Community involvement, record keeping, public speaking, various side projects, and of course how to handle, raise, and care for their animals.

We are fortunate indeed to have four active clubs in the area, each with slightly different goals. Whether that be horses, shooting, mechanical repairs, beef, swine, or sheep.  What the clubs all have in common is the earnest belief in teaching young people the value of hard work, how to have fun, and fostering a stronger community.
