Lace Sheldon is grand champion of the East Peace Inter-Club 4-H Achievement Day.

This beef show was June 4 at Spruce Point Park west of Kinuso. Two 4-H clubs took part. These are Kinuso Lakeside 4-H Club and Mirror Landing 4-H Club, out of Smith.

Over the year, club members raised a steer, heifer, or cow calf pair. The majority of cattle were steers.

At the competition, the cattle were judged for such things as weight, back length, hooves, and overall health.

The day started off with club competitions.

For Kinuso, Lace was champion and Mackenzie Plante reserve champion, which means second place overall.

For Mirror Landing, Emilie Andruik was champion. Kaitlyn Dennis was reserve champion.

In the inter-club competition, the best steer was named grand champion and second place reserve grand champion.

The Kinuso champion Lace was grand champion. Emilie Andruik, from Mirror Landing, was reserve grand champion.

Summer Mason, with Kinuso, raised both a heifer and a cow and calf pair. Her cow and calf pair was supreme female, which is the equivalent of grand champion for steers. Her heifer was grand champion heifer and reserve supreme female.

Issac Pendrak, with Kinuso, was reserve grand champion heifer.

While raising their cattle, 4-H members keep a record book, which includes weight gain.

For this the competition is called ‘rate of grain.’

Both medals in this category went to Kinuso Lakeside. Grand champion Lace was first place with 3.33 lbs/day. Mackenzie was second with 2.87 lbs/day.

There were also two extra categories in the Inter-club competition: grooming and showmanship. In these categories, participants were divided into junior and senior categories.

For Inter-club junior showmanship, Issac (Kinuso) placed first and Austin Laughy (Mirror Landing) was second.

In senior showmanship, both went to Kinuso. Emily Plante was first and Summer second.

In grooming, the juniors were split between the two clubs. Joseph Dreidger (Kinuso) was first and Brysa McConaghy (Mirror Landing) was second.

In senior grooming, once again both top places went to Kinuso. With Mackenzie, Kinuso reserve champion, placed first and Emily placed second.
