YORKTON - After two years of cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Yorkton 4-H Spring Steer and Heifer Show is back.
“It’s good for the kids. They’re happy to be able to do what they love,” said Stacey Hunt of the Tisdale 4-H Beef Club, and a member of the event board. “They just want to show their animals, and be with the other kids.”
The return of the spring show has certainly proved popular, with 22 clubs scheduled to participate.
Hunt said it has helped that they have incorporated a grooming clinic into the three-day event, which has brought some extra 4-H members in. She said they recognized with basically two years passing since they were in a show ring with their cattle “the kids needed a good refresher.”
As for the show, which will include grooming, showmanship, Jackpot show and open classes, the clubs have entered 130 steers and heifers, shown by 125 4-H members.
