Talyea Campbell - Lot #127

Hello, my name is Talyea Campbell, lot number 127 and a junior in the Springhouse 4-H Club. My second year in Swine and my third year in 4-H. I love flowers and they are nice to smell them. Lilacs are one of my favourite flowers, so I named my pig Lilac. She loves to snort at me in a very girly way and is a very calm pig. This is my first year having a girl pig. I learned a lot about how to feed, water and clean her pen this year. She listens quite well to me. It was a lot of fun. Hope to see you on Aug. 7. Check out our projects from noon-5 p.m. and auction at 5:30 p.m.

Zion Campbell - Lot #128

Hi, my name is Zion Campbell, lot number 128 and a junior in the Springhouse 4-H Club. My first year in Swine and my third year in 4-H. I was a Cloverbud for two years and I learned lots of cool stuff. I will be selling my pig, Porky. I named him this because he is a big boy. He’s a friendly pig, loves me to hose him off at feeding time as it cools him off when it’s hot out and loves his food. I learned a lot about feeding and caring for my pig this year, and it was fun. The Show and Sale is Aug. 3-7. It would be great to see you on Aug. 7, check out our projects from noon-5 p.m. and auction at 5:30 p.m.

Kammille Cunningham - Lot #129

Hi! My name is Kammille Cunningham. My lot number is 129. This is my third year in the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my first year as Club Reporter. I have written three articles. My pig’s name is Princess. She’s a Yorkshire Cross. She had a lot of attitude to begin with but now has turned into a sweet pig. Hope you can come watch us at the Show and Sale on Aug. 3-7 at the Williams Lake Stockyards.

Kaycee Cunningham - Lot #130

Hi! My name is Kaycee Cunningham. This is my first year as a junior in the Springhouse 4-H Club. My sheep’s name is Snowdrop. She is a homegrown Cheviot Dorset, from my grandparents Pat and Lorraine Jasper. I have enjoyed this and can’t wait for the next year. I hope to see you at Show and Sale Aug. 3-7!

Jude Carr-Humphries - Lot #144

Hi, my name is Jude Carr-Humphries, this is my tenth year in 4-H and I am a senior member of the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my fourth year doing a Market Steer project, and so far, it has been a great year. My steer’s name is Milo. He is a Simmental cross and I bought him off my sister Mason Carr-Humphries. Milo is my sister’s 4-H cow’s 2022 calf. He is a nice, compact animal who is finishing very nicely. I am really enjoying the process of raising Milo. I feed him twice a day with Sure Shot (which is a specialized grain for finishing beef animals) and roughly 20 pounds of grass-hay daily. So far, it’s been very uncomplicated, and my steer is very healthy and happy and gaining nicely. I am working hard to hone my beef-raising skills this year and have really been paying attention to the specifics of feeding, exercising, grooming and training my steer for the show ring. I have to say, he is not the most agreeable steer and likes to put me through my paces but at least he looks great doing it! I am looking forward to the 65th Annual Show and Sale taking place from Aug. 3-7 at the Williams Lake Stockyards and think my steer will do well. If you are interested in coming down to look at some other 4-H projects like Swine, Sheep, Photography, Foods, Gardening, Small Engines, Poultry and more, I encourage you to come and check it out. I would especially like to invite you to come and meet my steer, Milo.

Shea Carr-Humphries - Lot #145

Hello, my name is Shea Carr-Humphries, my lot number is 145 and I am 16 years old. I am a senior in the Springhouse 4-H Club and this is my tenth year in 4-H. This year is my third year doing a Market Steer project. My steer is a Black Angus cross and I bought him from Bill and Lyn Stafford at Chimney Creek Ranch. My steer’s name is Charlie and I selected him because he is really long and well put together. I feed Charlie Sure Shot grain and 10 pounds of hay twice a day. I groom and wash him on a weekly basis (daily when it is hot) and I exercise him a lot. As I mentioned, he is a very long steer, but he is really filling out despite his long frame, which makes me happy. Although I’ve been in 4-H for 10 years I always learn something new, and although this is my third year doing a Beef project, I am still learning a lot about it and I hope to continue to learn as my time as a 4-H member goes on! Every year, the Williams Lake 4-H Show and Sale provides members with an opportunity to share all of their hard work and passion for 4-H with the community. This year the Show and Sale is happening Aug. 3-7 at the Williams Lake Stockyards. If you’re looking for something fun and exciting to do, I highly recommend that you come down to the Stockyards and check out all the amazing projects in the barn. Charlie and I are lot number 145, and you will find us in the Springhouse beef stall. Can’t wait to see you there!

The sale will be on Monday, Aug. 7 at 5:30 p.m. This year I have raised market turkeys. I have six turkeys because when they are young, they usually die, and I needed to have three for my project. We managed to keep them all alive! My turkeys came from Rochester Hatchery on April 11 when they were only a day old. I have loved watching them grow and their personalities emerge from day one to dinner. This year I am choosing to sell my turkey named Drumstick. He is a large bird with nice feathers and surely will be a lovely turkey dinner! I enjoyed my first year a lot and I am looking forward to next year already. Hope to see you all at the sale.

My steer’s name is Hunter, he is a Hereford cross that was bred by Mark and Paulette Vike. Hunter was born on April 10, 2022, and is homegrown. I picked Hunter because he has a long body and I think he looks good. I have really liked how he holds his head up high and has been a very cooperative steer to work with. He has a good calm temperament and he is not crazy.

Dace Holm - Lot #141

Hi, my name is Dace Holm, lot number 141. This is my second year raising a market steer in 4-H. I am a member of the Springhouse 4-H Club. My steer is an Angus cross bred by Lisa Holm on my grandparents’ ranch in Big Lake. His name is Jeff, he is homegrown and was born on April 3, 2022. I picked Jeff because he looked a lot like my 4-H steer from last year. I liked the shape of his body. I have enjoyed watching Jeff become tame as I work with him. My favourite part about raising him is learning about food rationing and how it affects his growth.
