Learning to do... by doing B.C. 4-H Ambassador Amy Stafford B.C. 4-H ambassador We are ready. For the past seven months members have been working diligently, with plenty of determination, energy, and excitement. Projects have been completed, uniforms washed, and equipment shined and ready to go. The moment they have been waiting for is almost here. Everyone is ready for you. Are you ready for them? Hello, Williams Lake! It is my honour to welcome you to the 54th annual Williams Lake & District 4-H Show and Sale, held this year from Aug. 17 to 22 at the WL Stockyards. My name is Amy Stafford and I am a secondyear B.C. 4-H ambassador for the Central Interior, a region that encompasses 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Prince George and Robson Valley.

Amy Stafford is the B.C. 4-H ambassador for the Central Interior region. Photo submitted As a 4-H ambassador, it is my responsibility to travel around my region and the province of B.C. to educate the 4-H community and the public about

4-H, and the benefits it offers to all youth ages six to 21. 4-H is a program with an agricultural-based background that aims

Good luck at your Show & Sale! The Veterinarians and staff of the Williams Lake Veterinary Hospital congratulate the 4-H members of Williams Lake and area for a great effort in 2012!

to promote leadership, knowledge, citizenship, and personal development skills through achieving projects set out by the 4-H program.

You do not need to have an agriculturally-based background to join 4-H, as there are many nonlivestock-related projects, including clothing, crafts, gardening, and photography. Some livestock projects include beef, sheep, swine, and poultry. There are also animal projects that are non-livestock, including horse and dog. Along with completing projects, members attend various club and district functions throughout the year. These can include club meetings, judging rallies, speeches, demonstrations, and club achievement days. Once members reach 13 years of age, they can also become eligible for provincial trips, all of which I highly recommend. Perhaps the most exciting event in our district is the show and sale, held annually at the Williams Lake Stockyards. Over the six action-

packed days, you will witness all the hard work and effort that the members have put into making their projects ready for show, as well as the excitement of the new members, the renewal of old friendships and making of lasting memories. It is not an event to be missed, and I hope everyone will find the time to go, even for an hour or two. You will be glad you did. Along with my ambassador partner Camile Roberts, I would like to wish my fellow club and district 4-H members good luck, and I hope everyone learns to do by doing and has lots of fun. We are ready for you, Cariboo. Are you ready for us? If you have any questions about 4-H or are interested in joining next year, please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail at 250392-7897 or efstaff@telus. net.

Hello. My name is Ayme Desmond and I am 11 years old. I’ve been involved in 4-H for five years. I have been in the Chimney Valley 4-H Club for my whole 4-H career. This year I am in beef and it’s my fourth year in it. My steer’s name is Elvis and he is a Black AngusHereford cross. He is a very gentle and calm steer and I love him very much because of his personality and his goofy actions. I’ve been very impressed with Elvis because of his daily weight gain from when I first got him to now. Also, he has surprised me with how obedient he is when I use the show stick on him. If you are interested in coming to this year’s 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale, it will be held from Aug. 17 to 22.

Hi. My name is Allan Stafford. This is my fifth year in 4-H and in the Chimney Valley 4-H Club. This year I am doing gardening planter boxes. They are in the form of “flower beds” and they look really neat. This year in 4-H has been fun and exciting. We start the year with our first monthly meeting, when we hold our club elections. I am on the phone committee. This year I did a demonstration with Donavan Shaw. We placed first in our club, district, and regional levels so now we are off to Salmon Arm for Provincial Communications. I am really excited for this year’s show and sale, held Aug. 17 to 22.

The sale is on Aug. 22 with the Parade of Champions at 4:30 p.m. and sale at 5:30 p.m. The buyers’ dinner also happens on sale day from 3 to 9 p.m. The projects shown and sold are beef, swine, sheep, photography, small engines, and garden-

ing. The projects shown only are horses, poultry, dog, foods, rabbits, and Cloverbuds. The location is the Williams Lake Stockyards, 4665 Cattle Dr. Please feel free to come and check it out.

Amy Stafford Chimney Valley 4-H Club Hi everyone. My name is Amy Stafford. This is my 10th year in 4-H, and my fifth year in the Chimney Valley 4-H Club. This year I have two swine projects, a market hog and breeding gilt; our lot number is 81. My market hog is named Heidi. As of July 1, she

weighed 150 pounds and is gaining steadily. My gilt is called Phoebe. I am planning to breed her next year to use as a sow and litter project. I have been very busy as the vice-president of the Chimney Valley 4-H Club this year, attending many meetings and fundraisers. Other things I have done this year include continuing my term as a B.C. 4-H ambassador.

I am extremely excited and proud to represent my region in the province. I am also busy getting ready for the 54th annual Show and Sale, held Aug. 17 to 22 at the Williams Lake Stockyards. I hope that everyone in the Cariboo this summer will come down to check out the members and their projects. If you have any questions, please come see us in the Chimney Valley swine pens.

My pig is a purebred berkshire. Her colours are black and white. She got her name because she thumps with her back legs at objects. She kicks. I think she has bad dreams. A bad dream for a pig could be having intruders like wild animals come into their pasture and try to eat them. Another bad dream could be being cornered. Pigs don’t seem to like

this very much. I hope you can stop by and see us at

Hi. This is my eighth year in 4-H, and I thoroughly enjoy visiting with my old friends as well as making new ones at the show and sale. My name is Eric Smith and my lot number is 10. I am raising a beautiful Berkshire swine again this year. My hog is doing very well, first piglet born at our place this year. She is a bit of a brat, as the piglets spent a lot of time running around the outside of our huge pigpen. They were up in the yard a few times, visited the chicken house once or twice and taught all the other piglets to be naughty as well. That all came to an end when a bear came and killed one of Betty’s piglets … just before they were to go to their new homes. We now have a different electric fence … a netted one to keep the pig-

Hello. My name is Georgia. I am from the Big Lake 4-H Club. I have a rabbit for my 4-H project this year. His name is Misty. He is a two-year-old mini lop. He is grey, and I have to admit he is the cutest, fluffiest, most adorable thing that I have ever seen! I also do my best to take care of him. 
This is what 4-H is all about for me: 4-H is about caring for your animal or animals. You can have tons of animals, but if I were you I would stick with one or two for right now. But if you were a senior who has been doing 4-H for a while you could have one, two, three, or even four projects! But if you are a first timer and you are old enough to be a senior I would go with one project.
This is just my first year in 4-H as a junior. I have been in Cloverbud for one year, but I

lets in and the bears out as well as other predators. So far it is working for my brother’s sow and litter project. I enjoy 4-H and I am a member of the Big Lake 4-H Club. So make sure to check our stall out at the 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale.

We have added some barley to our feeding regime this year to make the Berkshire pork extra tasty! The best day for the show and sale is Aug. 21, as that is swine day … always a great show. Sale day is Aug. 22. Hope to see you all there!

Stephanie Smith Stephanie Smith Big Lake 4-H Club Well, it has been another busy year at the Big Lake 4-H Club. Just finished our bottle drive on June 24. Thank you, Big Lake, for the great community support! My name is Stephanie Smith and my lot number is 11 and my pig’s name is Spotticus (Spot for short as he has a big black spot on his blaze). He is a handsome Berkshire Barrow. He is growing pretty well considering he had a late start born

March 22. This is about two weeks later than you want them born at the latest. He is a bit shorter than my brother’s pigs but he is nicely — no, very nicely — built. We are feeding him extra Barley this year and the piglets love it! The barley will add to the flavour of the Berkshire meat. I cannot wait for the show and sale to be able to show the public my Berkshire. No wounds on my piglet this year (I had the pig named Flank), so he has a normal name this year! We did have a bear issue in April but that was solved about

as quickly as it started. We do see bears in our pastures regularly but the dog seems to help keep them moving right on out of the pasture so that makes it easier to have the wildlife and pigs living somewhat together. Spotticus is a fun pig! He seems to enjoy his life in the pasture … although the grass is so high we can hardly see pigs a lot of the time. Hope to see you all come to the 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale. Pig day is Aug. 22, the best day of the show. Well, at least it does have some action!

Maria DiMarco Maria DiMarco Big Lake 4-H Club Howdy there, partners! Ever wondered what it would be like to be in 4-H, to raise an animal, get some bucks, raise money, make posters, etc.? (I could go on forever with that list, but you’d fall asleep before I was half way through). Well, that’s what I’m here to tell you. I am Maria Dimarco from the Big Lake 4-H Club. I am a member in dog and photography. Other projects that you can do are swine (pig), beef (cows), sheep, small engines, horse, foods, poultry (although I don’t think our district has any members), and Cloverbuds, if you are six to eight years old.You are considered a junior member from age nine to 12, and you are considered a senior member from age 13 to 19 (as of Jan. 1). We have many different clubs in the district. Some have different projects than others. I really enjoy doing 4-H; you get to have many different experiences, you get to meet new people, and you get to learn what caring for an

animal is like. I am 11 years old, and have been a junior member for two years. I was a cloverbud for another two years before that, when I was with the Chimney Valley 4-H Club. Last year I did dog, with my two-yearold papillon, Shasta. I did unit 1 last year, and I am doing unit 2 this year. This year I am also doing photography. It is very fun. You get to take pictures you have never dreamed of taking. In the end, you put together a binder of your best pictures, and then show them for your achievement day. I could also make some money with a picture. 4-H isn’t just animals; you also do some public speaking. That is something I am particularly good at. Last year, I got first place in the juniors and got to go to the district speech competition in my hometown. I tied for second with two oth-

er girls there. I then got to go onto the regionals in Quesnel. I didn’t place in the top three in the regionals, but it was a great experience. This year I again placed first in my club as a junior, and again got to go to the districts, again in my hometown. This year, in districts, I placed first in juniors and got to go onto the regionals again, in Prince George. I placed first in the juniors. I couldn’t go any further after that, but the first place senior gets to go onto the provincial level. I hope to do that someday, too. I am the club’s scrap booker, along with Amy Swan. Other positions in the club are president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and safety officer; you have to be a senior to be president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. Being club executive sounds like fun! I am proud to be a Canadian 4-H member, and I hope you come to our 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale this year and check out some of our award-winning food! Maybe, someday, you’ll become a 4-Her yourself!

We are proud to support the 4H Show and Sale!

Lauren Swan Big Lake 4-H Hi. My name is Lauren Swan and I am in the Big Lake 4-H Club. This year I am raising a pig. My pig’s name is Mario. Mario is definitely what I would call “a pig.” He is almost always hungry. You can tell when Mario is hungry because he is quite loud. I am 12 years old and this is my second year in 4-H and my second year in swine. I think that 4-H is a cool place to learn about animals — what they like and what they need. This year is the

54th annual 4-H Show and Sale. Show and sale takes place from Aug. 18 to Aug. 22 at the Williams Lake Stockyards on Cattle Drive.

I would like to invite you to come down to this year’s show and sale. I will be selling my swine on Aug. 22. I hope to see you there.

Russell Swan Russell Swan Big Lake 4-H Club My name is Russell Swan and my steer’s name is Yuri. This is my eighth year in 4-H. I am in the Big Lake 4-H Club. Yuri is solid red. I am feeding him Altwasser mix. This year I am also taking a heifer named Honey-bee. She is a nice, golden colour. I also have my cow-calf project. The cow’s name is Daisy and her calf is Duke. They have kept me busy and I will continue to train them until they are ready for the show and sale. One fun thing I got to do this year was go to provincial club week. At provin-

cial club week we learned a lot about team building. It was a very fun trip and

I would recommend it to anyone who has the chance to go.

You know you are Redneck Rose when someone pets you, you bite them. You know you are Redneck Rose when you growl instead of oink.

Morgyn Reid Highland Valley 4-H Club

Well, it’s been seven years since I joined 4-H. I’ve raised one swine project, six market steer projects, four heifer projects, shown two cow/calf projects, made six speeches in front of my club and, along with my little brother, demonstrated how to make chocolate chip cookies. Practicing for the demonstration was my favourite part, as we had to sample our product … a lot. I’ve lost track of the 4-H cleanups, the sorting of cans and bottles for recycling, community weed-pulling days, Ranchers Appreciation Day barbecues, helping various rodeo committees when asked, and overnight camping for cow-camp where we practice grooming and showing our animals. It was always a good time… yes, even the weed pulling (they fed us). There are a ton of trips and educational opportunities available through 4-H

Learning to do... by doing Canim Valley 4-H Club This year has been a very busy one for the Canim Valley 4-H Club. Although we do not have as many market steer projects we have added foods and small engines to our group of projects and more female projects. This year we have two steers, one heifer, 11 market swine, one sow and litter, one ewe with lamb at foot, three ewes, six market lambs, one small engine, seven photography with one market project, five Cloverbuds and three foods members. We had a very successful year last year and are looking forward to another successful year at show and sale week again. Our new addition of female projects to the club has grown again this year. This year we have three ewes, one heifer and a sow with 12 little piglets. We were to have a cow/calf pair this year but unfortunately the calf did not make it. The experience of raising the female projects for

the members has been great. They have learned or will be learning about the breeding of livestock and the care that it will take to bring the babies back next year. Congratulations to all those who have taken on the two-year projects. We have been busy with fundraising for the yearly expenses. The Canim Valley 4-H Club has become well

known in our community for its catering expertise. We get between three and five catering jobs throughout the year. In addition to the catering, the club operates a canteen at our local slo-pitch tournaments. Thank you to all the parents and members for their help with all the fundraising.

Learning to do... by doing Jolee Campbell Jolee Campbell Canim Lake 4-H Club I invite you to come and meet my ewe and market lambs at the 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale. My ewe’s name is Rosetta and my market lamb’s name is Pepper. This is my second year raising lamb projects. Both Rosetta and Pepper are Cheviot-cross bred. They are fed 16 per cent sheep texture, hay and water. When I first got the lambs they were a little jumpy and hard to handle. I had to use a rope halter to train them to lead without fighting. They are kept at the Canim Valley 4-H sheep barn with the other 4-H lambs. I have to get up very early every day to feed them in the morning and we feed before supper at night. This is my first year with a ewe lamb and I am looking forward to bringing Rosetta back next year with her lamb as a ewe with lamb at foot.

Preparing for the show and sale is lots of work. We have to teach the lambs to lead, wash them, clip them, and trim their hooves. We practice at our club’s achievement day. I am also a photography

member with our club. I have to take pictures throughout the year and present them at our achievement day for photography. Good luck to all the other 4-H members during the show and sale week.

the same time. I now spend so much time with her. She comes when I call her. When I first put her on a halter she was not very happy. It took a while. Now she walks with me. It was amazing for me to watch when she was sheered. She jumped all around after it was done. I think she was actually very happy to have all that wool gone, especially when the weather was hot.

She gets excited when I go and see her. This makes me smile. I now can see why my sister loves having sheep as her 4-H project all these years. I would love to live on a farm and have many sheep. I am looking forward to going to the 54th annual Show and Sale in Williams Lake Aug. 17 to 22. I hope to see you all there to meet me and my sheep.

In previous 4-H years I have completed Cloverbud and fed lamb projects. This year I am doing a fed steer by the name of Nikolai. He is a Hereford/Angus cross and he weighs around 1,215 pounds. He is very friendly and easy to work with. Our lot

number is 235. Nikolai is a homegrown

steer that I purchased from my grandparents Fred and Barb Watkinson, who have a ranch in Lillooet, B.C. I joined 4-H so that I could learn about raising a fed steer and all that is involved in showing and grooming a beef project. I enjoy attending the 4-H functions and getting together with other clubs, especially at the show and sale. 4-H is a great way to learn to work with animals and members alike and to do various events and projects; 4-H teaches many life skills.

Courtney Rankin Springhouse 4-H Club Hi. My name is Courtney Rankin. I’m in the Springhouse 4-H Club and this year is my sixth year in 4-H. I’ve had a swine project for six years and my swine, this year, is named Sooki. Sooki is a Landrace breed of swine. This year is also my second year doing a ewe lamb project. My sheep’s name is Sapphire and she is a Suffolk ewe. This spring Sapphire had two female lambs. I named my lambs Zoe and Sarina. I’m sure enjoying the experience and commitment of raising pig and sheep projects in 4-H this year. I hope I’ll see you at show

and sale week, which starts Friday, Aug. 17 and goes to the 22nd. Please come out and see what our club has

to offer! Also, if you want to find me, I’ll be either in the pig or sheep sections of the Springhouse 4-H Club.

Nadia Klaue Nadia Klaue Springhouse 4-H Club Hi. My name is Nadia Klaue and I am 12 years old. I am part of the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my first year in 4-H and I am a junior. I am raising one market swine. My pig’s name is Pippin; she is a very energetic and friendly pig. When I go out in the morning to feed her she’s waiting by the door of the pen for me. She runs around a lot with her brother Nico. I love to play with her, running around the pen listening to her squeal. It’s really funny. She also follows me around to see if I have any special treats for her. I love to watch Pippin and Nico fight over the food and for the most comfortable part of their hay bed. But most of all, I love having to be responsible for raising an animal that then gets to be sold in a public place.

You can come and see me at the show and sale on Aug. 22 at 5:30 p.m. I will be in lot 221 so come

and say hi to me and my pig Pippin. Pippin and I will be looking forward to seeing you there.

Tierney Watkinson Springhouse 4-H Club

Hi. My name is Meaghan Watkinson and I am 17 years old. I was first introduced to 4-H when I was six years old in Merritt, B.C. I did my first year of 4-H there and I have now been in 4-H for a grand total of 11 years by being a part of the Springhouse 4-H Club. 4-H has brought me closer to the value of agriculture and to a better understanding of the industry. I have to thank my parents for allowing me to join this opportunity to become more informed so, in the future, I will have the chance to have my own ranch, like my grandparents. Throughout my time in 4-H I have done many projects. I first did Cloverbuds for two years, and then went into sewing. I was the only one who wanted to do this project, so my mother became the leader and did this for two years before switching to do swine.

Hi. My name is Tierney Watkinson and this is my 11th year in 4-H. It is also the last year I can be a normal member because I’ll be 20 next year …. That’s an odd thought. Strangely enough, this year I don’t have a sheep project. Instead, I am trying out photography as well as raising another steer, named Radar. I really enjoy photography, and I went to school for a while in Newfoundland, so I got a lot of practice taking random photos of the ocean and flowers. I even joined my school’s photography club, which was awesome, although we were all so busy with exams that we didn’t have time for much else. Radar was born in June of last year, and his dam (mother) is my cow Darby. I named him after a character from the TV show M*A*S*H. He’s mostly red Angus, crossed

This year I will have done a swine project for six years. I have also done sheep projects for four years. This year I am doing swine and a self-determined project. My swine is a purebred Yorkshire, and I had purchased her in April from Walter Hengstler; her breeder was Larry Jalcubec from Alberta. I named my pig Hen Wen after the pig on the Black Cauldron. Hen Wen will be under lot number 234 during the show and sale this year. The self-determined project that I chose to do is artistic techniques such as drawing and painting, which I’ve learned throughout the years. I decided to do this project because I love art and I am going to further my educa-

tion in this subject later this fall when I go to university. This fall, after the show and sale is over, I am going to Thompson Rivers University to do my bachelor of fine arts in Kamloops. I hope to come back next year to do one more year in 4-H before I call it quits. The show and sale is a must see for animal lovers and children. There are always classes throughout the long week designated to particular projects, and everyone is welcome to attend. 4-H is a unique learning experience for the young and old, so why don’t you come on down to the 54th annual 4-H Show and Sale held Aug. 17 to 22 at the Williams Lake Stockyards!

CONGRATULATIONS & GOOD LUCK!

with Hereford, but there is some Simmental and Shorthorn thrown in there too. Radar is a bit shy around other people, but at home he is a sweetheart. I don’t know if I am going to sell him at the show and sale because I was away for so long, but I will definitely be showing him. I feel like I have come a long way since I picked my first 4-H lamb Patches. For one, I am more imaginative

I have been in 4-H for eight years now. This is my first year as a senior and my fifth year in a sheep project. This year I will be taking my ewe-with-lambs-atfoot project, mom Crinkle, babies Twix and Henry (Twix will also be going as my ewe lamb this year), and my market lamb Horton to the show and sale. I will be showing all four of them on Aug. 19 at 9 a.m. You can come look for them or come watch me show them. Just look for lot number 177. This is my third year bringing my two-year-old ewe lamb Crinkle back to the show and sale. During my first year

with her she was my ewelamb project, and this year I am bringing her as a mature ewe with lambs. Originally I wasn’t bring Crinkle back this year. I was going to bring my ewe lamb, Babe, from last year back as a ewe-withlamb-at-foot project, but

sadly she didn’t make it through lambing season. Luckily I was still able to carry on with one of them as my ewe lamb, but the other one, I decided, was too small for a market-lamb project, so I went to Pam and Hugh Mahon and bought a HampsireSuffolk X Clunforest off of them, and so far I love him. Our club, the Rose Lake-

Horsefly 4-H Club

Miocene 4-H Club, had our sheep shearing on July 5 and we had the opportunity to weigh our lambs so we could see how much food and how much we needed to put into them before the show and sale. So far, my ewe lamb weighs 70 kilograms, my other lamb at foot weighs 60 kgs, my two-year-old ewe weighs 170 kg, and my market lamb weighs 85 kg. I would like to try to get the lambs up to about 100 kgs each. Show and sale is the one thing everyone in 4-H looks forward to in the year, and I am looking forward to seeing lots of people’s faces light up around all of the animals everyone has worked so hard to get to that point.\ I would like to say a special thanks to my buyer John Margetts from Margetts Meat Market last year for sponsoring 4-H and for buying my lamb.
