Eagle Valley 4-H Dairy and Gardening club members are working hard.

The club just participated in the District Rally Day, held at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds. Members tried their hand at comparative judging. Classes included dairy heifers, market beef steers, breeding beef heifers, roosters, dairy kids (goats), saddle horses, brood mares, crafts, photography, rabbit pellets, transplanting kits and seedlings and seeds to flowers (seed package selection).

It was a well-attended event, despite the chilly temperatures.

This month the club will be planting their garden plots and raised beds. The resulting vegetables will be entered both at the 2012 I.P.E. and Salmon Arm Fall Fair.

The club’s calves are growing well and look forward to their walks on halters with the members. The members also enjoy grooming their heifers and are learning husbandry skills each week.

The 4-H club’s next event is a fundraiser on May 19, a  mega, multi-family tail gate sale. Hundreds of items will be for sale in the Askew’s parking lot from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The club is grateful for all the support it has recieved.
