Big Valley 4-H news

On Nov. 8, we held our November meeting and weigh day at Elines' farm.

On Nov. 8, we held our November meeting and weigh day at Elines’ farm. We weighed 40 plus calves, so thankfully it was a nice day. Thank you to the County of Stettler for supplying the scale.

We started our meeting off with the 4-H pledge and roll call. Roll call was our name, name of our project and a sport that we like. Our club has been operating for five years. We started out with eight junior members and now we have 28 members. Our clubs goal this year is to ensure that the younger members learn the value of 4-H.

Feed prices were set at the following:

4-H ration 0.23/lb

Barley 0.10/lb

Oats 0.08/lb

Hay 0.12/lb

Minerals 0.25/day

Concentrate 0.25/day

Silage 0.02/lb

Yardage 3.00/month

Bedding 3.00/month

Our projects will be on feed for 198 days.

We held our bake sale on Nov. 22 in Big Valley. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the bake sale and bought some delicious treats and supported our club.

Our next meeting will be Dec. 7 at 7 the Big Valley arena.
