The Millarville Stockland 4-H Club held its Achievement Day on May 19.

The club is smaller this year but still very competitive. To start the day off we did multi-judging on different types of seeds. Then our cleaver members went first in the morning with their calendar calves, then showmanship and then a costume class. 

Next up we had our chute races. We were split into three teams, got five minutes for planning and then the race was on. It was very fun.  

Then we had our sheep show: first up was junior market lamb and then senior market lamb. Justin Watkins won grand champion market lamb and Kenzley Stanley won reserve champion market lamb. 

Then there was a pen of three class which had only one competitor, Sage Runge, who won first in her class. Runge was also grand champion ewe lamb with Stanley as reserve champion ewe lamb.  

Justin Watkins was grand champion breeding ewe lamb, with Runge as reserve champion breeding ewe lamb. The last class of sheep that day was junior and senior showmanship, won by William Penman (junior) and Runge (senior). 

The beef show started off mid-afternoon with junior and senior aged heifers and the grand champion heifer was Jessie Blatz, with Maddie Watkins as the reserve champion heifer. The next classes of beef were homegrown heifers, two-year-old/three-year-old cow/calf pairs. Grand champion female was Peyton Christman and reserve champion female was Blatz. 

Next class was herd class, with Maddie Watkins in first place and Harrison Rawn second. Just after that class was the market steer competition with junior, intermediate and senior classes. Grand champion steer was Blatz and reserve champion was Sterling Christman.  

In the junior, intermediate and senior showmanship, Sterling Christman made it off from junior, Peyton Cristman made it off from intermediate and Maddie Watkins made it off from senior.  

Then we had a costume class and the final class was master showmanship, which Runge won, with Peyton Christman in second. 

Thank you to all the judges, volunteers, parents and participants for making this day special for everyone.
