Holden 4-H Beef Club update

We wish that we were writing this inviting you to our achievement day and our district show and sale. Even though we can’t meet in person, we remain connected as a club. As individual families, we are all still working with our 4-H projects at home.

About one month ago our parents had an online meeting to discuss how we should market our steers. A price was decided on, and our steers were sold as carcass animals. Within two days of this decision, all twelve of our steers were sold! A BIG thank you goes out to our local communities, businesses,  friends and family who continue to support 4-H in every way they can. We appreciate you all very much!

Our projects are coming along nicely and now that the weather has warmed up, it is much easier to work with our cattle. We continue to train and groom our animals, and we will be making videos for our leaders about our projects.

The Dietrich family of Redrich Farm from Forestburg who were going to judge our achievement day have generously offered to give us feedback from pictures and videos of our projects for any members who would like some tips.

We certainly hope to gather as a club for a BBQ and a wind up gathering for the year, but time will tell when that can happen. Just a reminder-we appreciate everyone who continues to support 4-H!
