The 63rd annual Stettler District 4-H Show and Sale kicked off Monday with the heifer classes and the judging competition.

Four participating beef clubs, Big Knife, Big Valley, Byemoor and Erskine, staged their long-running event at the Stettler Agriplex, with Big Valley serving as the host club.

The show continued through Tuesday.

Judge Maureen Smith applauded the 4-H members’ hard work and the quality of the livestock they put before her.

One of the members showing multiple animals was Shayla Schilling of the Byemoor club. Her yearling, two-year-old and three-year-old, with calves at side, were named grand champion commercial herd.

“Even though it’s a lot of work, the calves are always fun to work with,” Schilling said.

On Tuesday, the 4-H members brought their steers to town for the show and sale, along with the grooming and showmanship competitions.
