After eight months of hard work, 4-H kids everywhere are excited about their achievement day and sales. The last half of May sees a flurry of activity as kids put the final touches on their projects in preparation for achievement day and sales.
At the Foothills 4-H Sheep and Multi Club, some of these projects include beef, sheep, goats, small engines, photography and archery.
The kids in the beef, sheep and goat projects have been working hard to halter break, feed, water and give their animals lots of love. Some of these animals will go on to become breeding stock for years ahead while others have been raised specifically to butcher and are now ready for the freezer.
Everyone in small engines has bought some small engines that did not work, and met every month to fix those engines and learn to optimize efficiency. Those in photography have had to take and produce photos of items provided on a list, including animals, landscapes, people and reactions.
Finally, the kids who are in archery have met regularly to do some shooting, and compete against one another.
All of these kids will be showcasing their projects at our club achievement day. These will also be shown at 4-H on Parade at the Calgary Stampede Grounds on May 26 to 29. We welcome you to come out to 4-H on Parade.
If you are looking to buy some meat, our club will have some great lamb and beef available that has been lovingly cared for by these young entrepreneurs. Buy a whole animal or buy a half, fill your freezer and show your family or employees your commitment to community support.
