4-H Beef Club
4-H multi Club
has been operating for 45 years!! It is a beef only Club so members specialize in many different beef projects! This year there are 16 4-H Members that have Market Project Steers that will be auctioned off, On- Line, in Innisfail on May 27th. 2021. As well, the Club consists of many Yearling Heifer Projects, Cow/Calf Projects, Whole Herds and they even have 10 Cleaver Kids (kids aged 6-9yrs with baby calves)! The Members not only learn how to produce a finished steer for their buyers, but also, how to raise the cows that produce those steers. These very same members are also well versed in Public Speaking, and have spent many many hours volunteering in the Community! They are the Future Of Agricultural, and are very strong up and coming Leaders in our Community!
began operating in 1977. For 44 years our members have been learning and growing thru the 4-H program. When the club started it was solely a beef club with members participating in both the market beef projects and beef breeding projects. In more recent years the club has progressed to a multi club, offering our members a variety of different projects each year. At the heart of the club we are still a livestock based club where we currently offer beef projects (both market and breeding still) and we now have added sheep, goat and pig projects to our livestock project list. We also run a K9 project each year. Some non livestock based projects that we have offered in the past and present include: scrapbooking, crafts, foods/baking, archery, welding and small engines. This year we have 24 members including 4 cleaver kids. Our members are well versed in the 4-H motto of Learn to do by Doing, and will be strong leaders of the future.

Sailor is a red angus Simmental cross. I got him at 578 pounds he was pretty easy to halter break. At weigh in he was one of the best behaved steers I seen there. Then I was keeping track of how much chop he was getting and then it got turned into free choice so I couldn't keep track. And he was kind of a pain to catch for a while, so I had separated him from all the others and it calmed him right down. I'm very excited for mini show and how and sale.
Howdy folks, my name is Ben Duffin, this is my 7th year in 4-H and here I have my steer Stewie or “stew meat” which is the nickname I gave him but he’d probably go good in a stew!! Stewie is a Black Angus with a slight touch of Simmental which he got from his father. Stewie enjoys standing around, eating, sleeping and running off when I pull out the halter. Some of my hobbies include skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, dirtbiking, and driving my truck and tractors. I’d like to thank Bouwman Plumbing for purchasing last years steer, Darcy. Hope to hear from y’all at the sale!

I am the president of the Rocky South 4-H Beef Club and this is my whole herd project, starting with my full blood heifer Virginia Hellen 031H I purchased her from Virginia ranch. She is a very deep and soggy heifer that I hope will build many females to build up my cow herd. My two year old cow calf pair Reba and her calf Jack. Reba is a heifer I showed as a calf because her dam was an old 4-H cow. So with proven genetics I kept her to show and am very happy with the bull calf she has at side! Lastly is my three year old cow calf pair Fiona and her calf John. I purchased this cow as a yearling heifer and am very happy with the way she has matured last year she raised the very first bull calf I have ever sold and I am very happy to say that she is stamping her calves out, as you can tell when you look at the calf she has at side!

The best part of 4-H is the new friends and working with my calf. The worst is public speaking and washing poop off of the steers. Hope to see you at the Show and Sale!!

I can’t wait to attend this year’s Show and Sale and learn from all of the older members.
Hey my name is Graeson. I’m 8 years old and this is my 1st year as a clever kid. I have a small beef project this year. His name is Jenkins and he is a purebred Gelbvieh. He doesn’t like to be touched but I think when he can start having grain he will come around.
THE CLEAVER KIDS Layne Mehlhaff
Hi I’m Layne, I’m 7 years old, and this is my 4-H project Hunter. He is a 1 month old angus cross steer. This is my first year and I am a cleaver kid. I have learned how to build a rope halter and am learning how to show my animals properly. I am excited to show him this year and looking forward to many more years in 4-H.
Hi my name is Summer Nutting and I am 6. This is my first year in 4-H. My Cleaver calf is named Joe. He is a black calf. I like riding my horse named Jazz. She used to by my Grandma’s. Thank you for coming to the sale.
Walker Ogilvie Hello my name is Walker Ogilvie, I am 8 years old and this is my first year in 4-H as a cleaver kid. My calf this years name is Jigger and he is a bull calf. I have really enjoyed working with him and learning new things. When I’m not helping on the ranch you can find me dirt biking, riding my horse, playing hockey or doing anything outside!
Hi my name is Casey Nutting and I am 8 years old. One of my favourite things to do is riding my horse with my dad, especially if we have to chase cows. This is my second year being a 4-H Cleaver. Thank you for coming to the sale.
Hi, my name is Annesly Ogilvie I am 6 years old and joined 4-H this year for the first time. My heifer calf’s name is Dottie. She is all black! I was hoping she would have white on her face like her mom Spot. I have loved every minute of 4-H so far and can’t wait to learn more. I’m a real farm girl and enjoy ranching, riding my horse, dirt biking and doing anything that gets me outside with my family.
Hi everybody! My name is Kendra Wedman and this is my sister's steer Turkey. He has many names like Herb...Turkey...pig pig and Herbster. He is so nice and I cuddle with him and my goats all the time. My cleaver calf is named Joey and he is soooooo cute! He follows me around like a dog and escapes from his pen to come get a bottle when he's hungry. I’m excited to show him this year and I hope to see you all there!
