Birthdate: Mar. 25, 2013

I am Cole Gawryluk and I’m 16 years old in grade 11. I am currently employed at Borderland Coop in Whitewood. This year my steer is once again a purebred Speckled Park. His name is Buddy. In my spare time I enjoy riding my dirt bike, driving my truck and working on the farm. What I like most about 4-H is that you make new friends, work with animals and learning a lot about other things.

Kelly Doud

Timone

Black Angus

Birthdate: Apr. 19, 2013

My name is Kelly Doud and this is my sixth year in 4-H. I am a senior member of the Whitewood 4-H Beef club and I love every bit of it. I refuse to shower in the morning, I must drown my cereal before I eat it, and I go for runs when the sun sets. I like history, travelling, volleyball and boys who drive pickup trucks. My steer’s name is Timone, like the cartoon character. He doesn’t like to be caught, even though he leads just fine. He’s a bit stubborn, but I bet you he won’t be if you bid on him at this year’s auction on July 8th! I hope we see you there!

Calvin Murphy

Vector

Shorthorn/Gelbvieh

Birthdate: Apr. 20, 2013

I am Calvin Murphy and I am 13 years old. I have been a member of the Whitewood 4-H Beef Club for five years. My projects this year are my Market Steer, my 2 Year Old Cow/Calf Pair, and my 3 Year Old Cow/Calf Pair. This year, I am also holding my first position as Vice President and Acting President of our club. I have learned so many things through 4-H, including how to speak in public, how to judge animals, how to conduct meetings, and more about agriculture and raising beef. I had my eye on my market steer, Vector, from the day he was born! Vector has a natural thickness and length that was easy to see from day one and he grew well all summer on his mother’s fine milk. His Dam is a Shorthorn/Glebvieh Cow and his Sire is a Shorthorn Bull with plenty of hip. Vector was born April 20, 2013 and started off the project year on November 30, 2013 with a weight of 805lbs. My 2 Year Old Cow is named Rosie. She is a full shorthorn and has done a great job of being a first time mother to her little heifer, Ruby, born April 24, 2014. Daisy is my 3 Year Old Cow. Her little bull calf, Buster, was born April 18, 2014. Buster is her second calf. Last year she raised a blue roan steer, named Bull’s-Eye. My sister, Reina, chose Bull’s-Eye for her 4-H Steer project this year. I love working on the farm and helping out my Dad and Mom. I also enjoy playing football for the Moosomin Generals. I am so very thankful for the opportunities that 4-H offers me including the opportunity to start my own cow herd! Thank you to the many volunteers, parents, sponsors and community members that support us in so many different ways to make our 4-H year a success!

Keegan Speidelsbach

OTIS

Red Angus/Simmental Cross

Birthdate: Mar. 24, 2013

My name is Keegan Speidelsbach. I am 10 years old and in Gr. 5 at Grenfell Elementary. I live on a farm southeast of Grenfell. My family and I farm over 200 head of cattle and grow some grain. I help my Dad everyday afterschool and on the weekend to do chores. This is my fourth year in Whitewood 4-H Beef Club. This is my second year as a junior. Last year I won an award for having the most progress in my first year of junior. In the beginning of April my steer Otis (I call him Oty) weighed in at 1350 lbs. My steer weighed the most in the month of April. I picked my steer because he was the quietest and the biggest. This year I have taken more responsibility of feeding my steer and working with my steer. I love to work with him. He is quiet, big and is a very good leader. My steer is 100% home grown, from his feed to the home grown rolled barley to the straw he lays on. I love 4-H because you get to meet new friends, do fun activities and work with cattle. This year my curling team got gold at District 5 curling. 4-H is not an individual sport where one person is involved. It includes everyone from meetings, weigh days, caterings to 4-H fun events. I am very proud to be a 4-H member and look forward to raising many steers for many more years to come.

Reina Murphy

Bull’s-Eye

Gelbvieh/Shorthorn

Birthdate: Apr. 24, 2013

My name is Reina Murphy and I am 10 years old. This is my 4th year in 4-H, but this is the first year that I am taking a Market Steer. My steer is a blue roan. His name is Bull’s-Eye. He is a Shorthorn/Gelbvieh cross steer. Bull’s-Eye was my brother’s calf from his Cow/Calf Pair last year. He was born April 24, 2013. Bulls–Eye started out weighing 705lbs in December. He now weighs over 1100 lbs! Right now my steer is eating 28 and a little bit pounds of barley ration and a fork full of hay. After I feed my steer, I spray him down with water to keep him cool. I am sad that I am going to have to sell Bull’s-Eye at the end of the year, but I am going to use my 4-H money to buy my first cow! I can’t wait to have my very own cow! I like to ride my horse in my free time. Her name is Scarlet. I love to chase the cows in the valley. I also like to run and play in my fort in the trees.
