At the March meeting, our club voted to donate $400 to be used for awards at this year’s fair. This is the list of awards our club will be covering.
4-H members are encouraged to enter the County Animal Record Book Contest to have their books evaluated. Champion and Reserve Champion awards will be given to the top Junior, Intermediate, and Senior books in each division. This contest is for members who want their Beef, Dairy Cattle, Dog, Cat, Goat, Horse, Alpaca/Llama, Poultry, Rabbit, Sheep, and Swine record books evaluated on the county level.
Each species will be judged separately. If you put all of your species in one e-fecord book, you must make a separate copy of your book for each contest you wish to enter; otherwise, the book will only be judged in one of the specie categories. For the purposes of using the Junior Livestock Sale price in your record book calculations, youth should use the price determined on the night of the sale and should not wait for the final amount included in the Junior Livestock Sale Committee letter (including add-ons and commission adjustments). This letter typically is not received until mid-September.
4-H club members do not have to compete in this contest to complete their 4-H year or project work, but must have their book(s) reviewed by their club or project leader for completion. To enter the contest, give your record books to your club leader by September 11.
Cindy will take the record books to Fort Collins, so please get them to her before September 11, or on September 11 at our club picnic. Our club expectation is for all in livestock participants to enter the contest. If you need help in any way, please ask.
For those that did not show at the county fair, we NEED you to complete your project, or at least one of them if you enrolled in multiple projects, for our club to show completion. For every member that does not complete, our club gets a “ding,” and if we don’t make 70% completion our club status is in jeopardy. To show completion, an e-record and a project must be submitted by September 11. Turn it in to Cindy or Anita.
If you are in shooting sports, having attended enough practices is not required. You can still complete the project itself.
PLEASE make an attempt to complete your projects!
The High Country Handiworkers 4-H club was chartered in 1980 and is located in Larimer County, Colorado.
