Big Knife 4-H beef club holds mini show day and stall display cleanup

SHAYLA DERR/Big Knife 4-H club reporter

We had our yearly mini show day at the Donalda arena on April 17 at 10 a.m.

Our club started off the morning practising showing our calves. Tammy Dolliver helped us out and gave us pointers. In between the practices, we had a potluck lunch. The afternoon kicked off with the rest of the practice showing, judging steers and a grooming and clipping demonstration by John Dolliver. We had a few rodeos and runaways, but all in all, everybody learned something new.

Following the mini show day, we had our stall display cleanup. It was held at Jim Skocdopole’s farm on April 25 at 10:30 a.m. The morning consisted of wiping down and washing our stall display, then painting and touching up all the little details. We even set the whole thing up to show the younger members how to assemble it. Our club decided on new ways how to make our display look a little neater.

Keep practising and keeping up the good work!
