Jaci Gilbert

Hello. My name is Jaci Gilbert and I have been a member of the Canim Valley 4-H Club for approximately nine years.

This year I am raising a market steer and his name is Bugs — a Black Angus. Sadly, there won’t be a show this year, however, we still get to sell our animals through an online auction.

I hope that buyers will attend this online auction and purchase a 4-H project.

Next year, I hope that we continue to have our regular show and sale and see everyone again.

Janielle Dick

My name is Janielle Dick and this is my sheep — a Suffolk/Dorset Cross — Jasper. He is the second sheep that I have had, and I have had a lot of fun raising him this year.

I hope you all enjoy our sale on Monday, Aug. 10.

Laura Dewsbury

Hi. My name is Laura Dewsbury. I am graduating this year and the president of the Canim Valley 4-H Club. As for this being my last yaer in 4-H I wanted to raise my first steer. His name is Moo, a Black Angus. I work with him daily, and have learned a lot about raising a steer in these past 10 months.

I would like to take this chance to thank you in advance for attending our 4-H auction this year, virtual or in person, on Monday, Aug. 10.

Lorna Dixon

Hi everyone. My name is Lorna Dixon, and my project is a Black Angus. My lot number is 25, and my project had a beginning weight of 800 pounds.

Lexus Amut

Hello. My name is Lexus Amut and I am a member of Canim Valley 4-H Club. This is my eighth year in 4-H but my first year in photography.

4-H has changed this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic but I am overall grateful that we could finish it some way. All the adults, parents and leaders have been working hard to let us finish our year, even if we don’t go to the stockyards or be in the ring due to social distancing to keep safe of this difficult time. It is different to be doing my project because I never tried photography or at a time like this, but I do hope my photos are liked.

I hope everyone else is doing well and staying safe!

Loghan Archie

Hi. I’m Loghan Archie and this is my steer Foo, a Charlais. He is the first steer that I have raised. Last year I had a lamb.

I have enjoyed learning how to raise a steer this year with my sisters’ help. Thank you in advance for attending the auction, in person or virtual, on Monday, Aug. 10.
