The Silver Willow 4H Membership is up and working as soon as once more this 12 months. The membership has been round for 45 years. We now have 21 members which might be enrolled in both beef, sheep or soil initiatives. We began off our 12 months with a Zoom assembly, as a consequence of Covid restrictions, to find out the 4H roles that the members would have this 12 months. Our subsequent get collectively shall be in particular person, however outdoors, to comply with rules.
That is my second 12 months with a beef mission. My sisters even have beef initiatives this 12 months, so we now have 4 steers. My sisters and I’ve began to halter practice them and get them used to being groomed. My steer is getting extra pleasant, and I’ve named him Buff.
We had our first weigh-in on November 7 at our chief’s home. It was an attractive day however a bit of slick from the moist floor that has not frozen but. After we weighed our steers we vaccinated them. Thanks to North Peace Vet Clinic on your beneficiant donation of vaccinations and dewormer for our initiatives. Our steers have to be vaccinated in an effort to qualify for insurance coverage. For our subsequent assembly we hope for some extra snow as a result of we’re imagined to be going sledding!
That is all for this month.
