Members of the Carnduff and Area 4-H Beef Club.

CARNDUFF - Members of the Carnduff and Area 4-H Beef Club have remained busy in the past couple of months.

Our 15 members have been getting ready for our achievement day and the regional 4-H sale day. It was decided by all kids to have a halter-breaking challenge. Each member paid $5 for each entry. We had to send a short video of us leading our calf to the leaders. All members did a great job. We will have some nice quiet calves for the show this year. 

First place received $60, second place $40, third place $20 and fourth $10.

Members took part in District 41 bowling on April 13. This was well-attended by all the clubs. There was a Chinese auction, and it was a great way to meet some new friends.

Our club will be in charge of Muti-Species Judging on April 28 at Carnduff Ag grounds. All clubs are welcome. We will be judging steers, heifers, sheep, horses and forage. We will be focusing on oral judging and judging cards. The start time is 10 a.m. Please register in advance.

We will have our annual spring bottle drive on May 4. Our demo day will be held May 20 at the Carnduff Ag Grounds. Everyone will bring their calves. We will work on showmanship, grooming, judging and marketing. It will be a great hands-on experience and a chance to pick up new techniques for achievement day.

Our local achievement day has changed a bit from previous years, but will be held June 3. Regionals will be held in Alameda June 8 & 9. Please come check out all the hard work the kids put in with their calves at the show, and take in the steer sale. Hope to see you there.

It was bring a friend day to 4-H recently. We all worked in groups and built corrals with our friends.
