Byemoor, Big Knife clubs sweep heifer awards

The opening day featured the heifer projects of the four clubs competing — Big Knife, Big Valley, Byemoor and Erskine.

At the Stettler District 4-H Show this week

The 62nd annual Stettler District 4-H Show got off to a productive start Monday at the Stettler Agriplex with the first day of a two-day show.

The opening day featured the heifer projects of the four clubs competing — Big Knife, Big Valley, Byemoor and Erskine.

The complete results of the steer show and sale held Tuesday will be featured in next week’s Independent.

The heifer show, judged by Ty Dietrich, was divided into two categories — commercial and purebred.

The awards were swept by the Byemoor and Big Knife clubs.

The commercial heifer show was dominated by a nine-year member from the Byemoor club, as 17-year-old Kourtney Schilling won the grand champion female, grand champion herd, grand champion three-year-old and reserve grand champion two-year-old.

The reserve grand champion female was the yearling entry shown by Rylee Jacobson, a four-year member of the Big Knife club.

Other champions included: reserve grand champion yearling — Junae Ventnor of Big Knife; grand champion two-year-old — Shayla Schilling of Byemoor; and reserve grand champion three-year-old — Kallie Stewart of Byemoor.

The purebred division had fewer entries, but it was Kathryn Dolliver of the Big Knife Club who cleaned up on the prizes.

Dolliver, a seven-year member, won grand champion female with her yearling entry and reserve grand champion with her two-year-old.

Jeanine Foot, also of the Big Knife club, won the reserve champion yearling.
