The 4H Club of Weyburn held Achievement Days over the weekend, where the members compete within their own club and they choose champions and reserve, as well as team grooming, judging, and more.
Bev Gordon said they are fun days.
"And really important days, because that's what determines who goes on to do the team grooming, representing their club at the Inter-Club show," she noted.
The Inter-Club Show and Sale began today, with weighing, judging of showmanship, and grooming. The regional judging competition begins at 2:30 p.m. today, which determines who represents Saskatchewan at the international judging at agribition time.
"We welcome everyone. The more people in the stands, the better," Gordon said. "There's no charge to get in, and there's nothing better than the 4H kids showing the people in the city and in the country their projects that they've worked really hard on."
She said there are more species than cattle at this show.
"There'll be dogs, lots of times we've had dogs, horses, different kinds of beef," she shared. "Sometimes we have even teacups," Gordon said, noting that's how many judges get their start.
The Steer show runs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m., and the Heifer show goes on Wednesday at 8:00 a.m.
"This year we'll have 118 steers. Our judge is Shannon Eaton. He's from Alberta, so we're excited to have him," she said. "And then at 3:30 would be the jackpot shows, so they're open to anyone in the area who wants to bring their animal, and then on July the 6th at 8:00 a.m., we will start our female show and there are 64 heifers in our show and 15 cow-calf pairs."
Gordon said at 1:30 they'll hold the awards, and at 2:30 the calf sale.
"So we invite everyone to come down, have a look around at the barns, and chat with the members," she invited. "They like nothing better to show you what they've worked on all year."
