Willow Creek 4-H District champs named

JEANNE WHITE, GAZETTE CONTRIBUTOR

This year, due to COVID-19, the Willow Creek 4-H District members’ projects were judged and sold at an auction market, with no members present.

The Willow Creek 4-H District held their market lamb judging and sale in conjunction with an existing sheep sale at the Southern Alberta Livestock Exchange (SALE) in Fort Macleod.

Fifteen project lambs were evaluated by Ryan Konynenbelt.

Colby Symens of the Stavely-Parkland Beef Club won grand champion market lamb with his lamb “Sparky.”

Reserve champion went to Alysha Siewert of the Stavely-Parkland Beef Club and her lamb “Trumpet.”

The district market steer judging and weigh-in event was held at Foothills Auctioneers.

Earl Dunn judged the steers from all three clubs, which had all been pre-sold privately.

The members were proud and pleased to have all of their beef headed to local freezers and appreciate the support.

Grand champion steer went to Teran Broderson of Claresholm 4-H Beef Club with his CharX steer, “Bowser.”

Reserve grand champion was won by Kelly Van Ee of the Fort Macleod Beef Club with her Red AngusX steer, “Marshall.”

The market steer rate of gain award went to first-year member, Hailey Chester of Fort Macleod Beef with her steer “Curly.”
