Hi. My name is Amely Wolf. I’m 15 years old, in Grade 9 and I am a member of the Springhouse 4-H Club. I have been in 4-H for four years. I have shown lambs and even done photography for a year, but this will be my first year in food. I have always enjoyed baking and cooking for friends and family. I have been adding to my list of favorite recipes since I was five, along with learning some desserts from my family’s cook book.
I have learned a lot from being in 4-H and food specifically. I have found so many new desserts and delicious foods and I can’t wait to make even more. Thank you for all of your support during the pandemic. It’s the buyers like you that will help make this year’s 4-H sale possible. We hope that you can join us either in person or online on Aug. 10.
Hi. My name is Andre Yurkiw. I am 19 years old and this is my 14th and final year in 4-H. I am lot #240 from the Springhouse 4-H Club and this year I am raising a black Angus cross market steer. His name is Murphy and he weighted 1,286 pounds on June 21.
He is eating eight pounds of sure shot grain mixed with two pounds of wet beet pulp. He is also getting 20 pounds of Timothy brome grass hay.
He has gained really well this year.
My name is Asher Hollett, lot# 209. I am a junior member of the Springhouse 4-H Club and this my 4-H market swine project “Bae-Kon.” This is my first year in the Springhouse Club, and it is also my first year doing an animal project. 2020 has come with many changes, including how 4-H works, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. My family and I are very appreciative of the 4-H leaders who have worked so hard to make this the best year possible for us members during this very difficult time! 4-H is all about kids, but without the adult leaders/parents’ hard work, support of the community, and the buyers, none of this would be possible! I am very grateful for all the great things 4-H does!
My name is Colin Hlusek and my lot #206. This is my fourth year in 4-H. I belong to Springhouse 4-H Club. This year I have a market steer named Titian.
Titian is an Angus X Hereford steer. He currently weights around 1,200 pounds. He has been a fun steer to raise. His curious nature makes it quite enjoyable. He is always up to something. I have spent time clipping, fitting and practiced showing at our cow camp.
Unfortunately, this year there is no show due to COVID-19 but I will be selling Titian at the Sale Aug. 10 at the Williams Lake Stockyards where anyone can come view the animals from noon until 5:30 p.m. The sale starts at 6:30 p.m.
I hope you are able to come see Titian at the 62nd Annual 4-H Sale.
My name is Colton Peter and I am in the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my fifth year in 4-H and I am raising again a market swine. I got Kermit since the beginning of February 2020, since he was born in our barn, he is home bred and raised. His breed is Landrace X Bershire.

My name is Damian Shaw, lot #212, with the Springhouse 4-H Club. I purchased my pig project from the Gardner Ranch, and he was born March 1. He is a Yorkshire cross.
This is my fourth year in 4-H and this is my third pig project. My pig’s name is Feral. He is friendly, but has different moods and does try to bite when it’s feeding time.
I enjoy being in 4-H so that I can meet new friends and get to raise an animal. I like getting to wash my pig. It’s fun and messy.
Hi. My name is Deegan Styran. I am 12 years old and this is my third year in 4-H and second year with the Springhouse 4-H Club.
My project is swine – lot #234.

Hi. I am Elijah Walker, lot #236, and I belong to the Springhouse 4-H Club. My pig’s name is Devastator the Excavator. I purchased him from Sue Peters and he was born Feb. 22 and is a Yorkshire cross.
This is my first year doing 4-H and am enjoying it. It is a great experience for me and is helping me at work as well for some reason. Devastator is a very nice pig and, like his friend swines, he loves his stomach being rubbed so when I am leading him around with the cane, I can’t rub his stomach because he will fall on his side. He is bossy, as well. He never lets the others get the leftover food and when I bring him milk, he goes crazy and pushes everyone away from the milk and drinks it all.
My name is Glen Pollard and this is my 1st year in 4-H. My lot number is 221 and I am with the Springhouse 4-H Club. I purchased my pig from the Gardner Ranch and she was born on March 1 and is a Yorkshire cross. My pig’s name is Cookies N Cream and she is the best pig in the world. She loves to have tummy rubs and that is how I make her do things. We can be found together lying with each other in the field most days. I have enjoyed 4-H this year and look forward to raising more animals.

I am going to be taking John Wayne to our club achievement day. I would like to take this time to invite you to our Williams Lake and District 4-H sale on Monday, Aug. 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Williams Lake Stockyards.
Hello, this is Jace Mecham. This is my first year with a project, and I have a steer named Gib. He is curious, likes to eat grain and get scratched between his shoulder blades.

My swine is a mixed breed of Berkshire, Yorkshire and Landrace. I purchased her from a family farm in Enderby. I named her Puggles. Puggles loves to be fed first and I am able to pet her while she eats. Puggles reminds me a lot like our family dog, she will come running to me when she sees me and starts to grunt.
This is my very first year being a part of 4-H with Springhouse. I was really looking forward to showing my swine in front of a judge but due to COVID-19 we will be only selling our animals this year on Aug. 10, 2020 at 6:30 p.m.

Hi! My name is Jude Carr-Humphries. I am 13 years old, and I am a junior member in the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my seventh year in 4-H, and for the first time I am doing a beef project. My steer’s name is Benjamin, and he is Black Angus cross steer. I bought him from Hellen Bayliff at Chilancoh Ranch, in Redstone B.C. As of June 20, Benjamin weighed about 1,374 pounds, so he is a big boy. This year I’ve learned a lot about raising a market steer, from proper feeding to walking, washing, grooming, and showing. It’s been a lot of work but it’s been well worth it. Benjamin is turning out to be a great animal and I am very proud to offer him for sale at this year’s annual 4-H sale happening Aug. 10, 2020 at the Williams Lake Stockyards and online. I want to thank all the buyers, sponsors, leaders and volunteers for working so hard to make this another great year in 4-H. Remember, when looking for an awesome market steer this year, his name is Benjamin, he is a big Black Aangus cross, and we are lot number #198.

Hello, I am Kala Campbell. I am 13 years old, and I am going into grade 8 at Lake City Secondary. In school my favourite subject is Physical Education. Outside of school I spend my time practicing my sports (Figure skating, volleyball, track, etc.) I am a junior, first year in swine; second year in Springhouse 4-H Club.
In the end of March is when I bought Milo (my pig) from Fox Dairy Farms. He was so little only 35 pounds. I enjoy bathing Milo because he gets so excited he dances all around in a circle happily squealing. I have learned to keep track of the feed, and slop: daily, and I make sure to clean my pig’s pen when it is needed. Every time someone asks, “What Animals I Own?’ I say, “Pigs!” They all look at me and say “Actually?” It is fun to look after my pig because he is fun to play with, and he loves his head scratched, especially on his forehead. The smarts of my pig amazes me, as soon as he gets a new area to go into with grass, he sticks his whole face into the ground to root it up? There is going to be a lot of nice fresh soil on our acreage.
I would like to invite you to the Sale of my pig at the Stockyards, Monday Aug. 10, you can view him noon to 5:30 p.m., and sale at 6:30 p.m.
Hi everyone! My name is Mason Carr-Humphries. I am a senior member in 4-H, and this is my seventh year in the Springhouse 4-H Club. This is my fourth year with a beef project, and my steer’s name is Rufus. I bought him from Hellen Bayliff at Chilancoh Ranch Redstone B.C, and he is a Black Angus. Rufus weighed around 1,288 pounds on June 1. Although its been a crazy year with COVID-19, I have found that I had more time during quarantine to work with him, groom him and generally spend time with him. I am very proud of him and how far he has come since I purchased him in November 2019. Rufus and I would like to invite you all to this year’s Annual 4-H Sale on Aug. 10, which will take place at the Williams Lake Stockyards and online. Although I am really going to miss the show this year, I would like to thank all the buyers, 4-H leaders and volunteers who have worked hard to make this sale possible. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Look for Rufus and I online this year and, remember, Rufus will be in the barn on sale day looking fabulous for his lucky buyer. Our lot # is 199, thank you.

My name is Steve Mckeown of the Springhouse 4-H Club, lot #205. This is my second year raising a market hog project. My project this yaer was purchased from Gardner Ranch and was born March 1. He is a Yorkshire cross.
His name is Marven, and he really likes to sit in the mud, so it has been a lucky, wet year for him, but hard for me to keep him clean.
Marven likes belly rubys and to play chase. I really enjoy 4-H and all the learning and chances to raise animals. I have also completed a poultry project this year.
I raised Silkie chicks and, luckily, my pig and chicks have all gotten along with each other.
My name is Talyea Campbell (lot #196). I am 10 years old, and I am going into the fifth grade at Chilcotin School. I enjoy spending time on our acreage with all of my animals, like to take pictures of my big cat named “Ash.”
This is my first year with a project in 4-h. I am in photography Unit 1 in Springhouse. I have learned about the use of my camera, how to use a tripod, high and low angle camera shots, center of interest, symmetrical and asymmetrical angles with my camera.
I have picked my horse photo with frame which is called “The Whispering Horse.” I traveled to Quesnel to print my picture at Big Country Printers. Then it was costumed framed by Carrie at Carrie’s Custom Picture Frames. I had taken it on automatic mode as a handheld photo. I went with my dad to a lady’s acreage where the horse lives because he is a Horse Ferrier. The horse was having its feet trimmed and gave me a look like it was whispering to me. I turned the camera to fit the whole head of the horse into the picture. I loved the way the horse didn’t move when I took the picture.
I would like to invite you to come out to see my horse photo on Aug. 10 from noon to 5:30 p.m., with the sale at 6:30 p.m.

My name is Axel Campbell. I am 11 years old and I am going into the sixth grade at Chilcotin School.
I enjoy spending time with my two sisters, and brother. I play hockey in Williams Lake minor hockey, and spend a lot of my outdoor time on our acreage.
This is my first time in raising a 4-H pig, and my second year as a junior in Springhouse 4-H. I picked up my pig at Fox Dairy Farms, and he was 35 pounds.
I decided to name my pig, Chara, who I named after my favourite hockey player Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins.
He is a crossbreed; Landraise Yorkshire. Chara is a calm, friendly and enjoys oinking when I come to see him. He enjoys a nap after each meal.
I learned a lot from 4-H in raising my pig. I feed him twice a day: hog grower feed, slop and some treats.
It isn’t always easy because I get quite muddy because Chara likes to nudge me with his snout. I learned to measure food, adding more as he got bigger, and how to wash him, and the different parts of my pig. Then use my cane in training, plus care for my animal and keep records of everything that is to be done for him.
I would appreciate you coming to bid on my market pig during the auction. My lot is #194

Hello, my name is Brooklynn Hoppner. I am 10 years old and this is my third year as a member of the Springhouse 4-H Club, but my first year as a junior member. My lot #211 and I am in photography and beginner beef. I chose to sell one of my photographs I took, which is a family of geese. The reason I chose this picture is due to the meaning I feel when I look at it. With everything that has happened these past few months we have had to depend on family and what more could this picture say than that it’s what family is: looking out for each other and keeping us safe. Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and my project.
