Colin Hlusek Lot #187

Hi name is Colin Hlusek and this if my fifth year in 4-H. This year I have a market steer name Huricane. He is Gelbvieh x Angus steer that I bought from Mecham Cattle Co.

I got Skittles since he was born Feb. 1. 2021, he is homegrown and raised. His breed is Landrace and Large Black crossed. He is a rather lazy pig and likes to eat and snooze on my feet and likes to get brushed all over his body. I raised pigs for 4-H since the last six years and I learned a lot about them and how to work with them and for sure that every pig has a different mind and is not the same and need a different approach.

Jude Carr-Humphries Lot #190

My name is Jude Carr-Humphries, I am a senior member, and this is my ninth year in 4-H. I am member of the Springhouse 4-H club, and my project this year is a market steer. My steer’s name is Chunk, he is a black angus cross, and I got him from our neighbours, the Kaufmans, at Dunlevy Ranch in Soda Creek. Chunk is very well-behaved for the most part, and he has grown to be a beautiful animal if I do say so myself. Due to the heat wave that came over, he spent about a week in the shade under shelter. I hosed him down with cool water morning and evening so he didn’t get too hot. Now that it’s a little cooler, I have been able to properly exercise him, groom him, and practice showing him. I am looking forward to this year’s Show & Sale, and I would like to thank all the leaders, volunteers and the community for being so supportive of 4-H. Thanks to all of you, 4-H has kept going strong in spite of some pretty big things like fires, Covid-19, and crazy heat waves. I hope to see you all at Show and Sale- look for Lot #190 in the beef barn!

This year I learned about foods, rabbits, alpacas, farm safety, crafts, small engines and dairy. We made a craft and had worksheets to do for each unit. I enjoyed decorating the sugar cookie for our food’s unit and doing my record book the best. I am looking forward to the Show and Sale.

Mason Carr-Humphries Lot #191

Hi! My name is Mason Carr-Humphries, and I am a senior member in the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my ninth year in 4-H, and my fifth year doing a market steer project. I am also doing a mature cow calf project, starring my lovely cow Scarlett, and her calf Snickers. This year, I decided to try a homegrown project, and selected my cow Scarlett’s first calf Binky as my market steer. So far, I’m super happy with my choice- Binky is a joy to work with (most of the time) and is very food focused. His personality is like his mother’s, so he is a handful!

This has been another strange year with COVID-19 still on the scene, and now another dry, hot start to the summer that I’m sure reminds us all of the fires of 2017. I’m grateful to have 4-H to focus on and keep me grounded in these stressful times, and I am also so appreciative of all of the support given to local 4-H year after year. I am looking forward to show and sale, Binky and I are lot #191 and we hope to see you there!

Meikka Solomon Lot #204

Roman Solomon Lot #208

My name is Roman Solomon lot number 208. I am 11 years old and belong to the Springhouse 4-H club. I am raising a steer this year, he is a Speckled Park named Marbles.

Shea Carr-Humphries Lot #192

Hi, I am Shea Carr-Humphries, I am a senior member in the Springhouse 4-H club, this is my ninth year in 4-H. In previous years, I have done cloverbuds, market lamb and small engines, but this this year I am doing a market steer project. My steer’s name is Lucius, and he came from Dunlevy Ranch (also known as Soda Creek Sweet Corn for you corn lovers out there). He is an Angus Cross, and he is quite a character. I feed Lucius grain and hay twice daily and I have to feed him a lot because he is a really long steer. Lucius has been doing quite well even though it has been very hot lately. I have been washing him once or twice a day, and I think it helps keep him cool, which is why I think he really likes it. I am really looking forward to the Show and Sale this year. If you’re looking for a great Steer, Lucius and I are lot number 192, and he will be in the barn on sale day!

Shelby Hollett #194
