On Saturday we held our annual 4-H Bar-B, which is held at Claresholm Sobeys. The meat that we sell in the Bar-B-Q is from one of the clubs carcass steers. There was a 16% chance that beef was my home raised Hereford carcass steer! As soon as we got home we tied up all the females and steers that would be going to Achievement Day. I then started clipping. It is not advised to clip your cattle two days before the show, but since the girls were with bull I really had no other choice.By the end of the day yesterday, I had all my females clipped and had developed a sunburn. (I now look like a lobster!!)
|Daniel tried clipping a little too!|
|While I clipped, Daniel and my boyfriend, Mac, snared a couple gophers||(look at the end of the twine)|
|Washing my heifer|
The plan is to rise bright and early, load everything, and head to town! I will keep you posted on how my last Achievement Day goes!
Farewell for now
P.S. Since we had a couple really nice days this weekend I got to do something I have always wanted to do! I took pictures in my grad dress with my steer...here's a sneak peek!
