The following is an informational letter from the Sidney Beef 4H Club.
Well, it’s that time of year again. Summer is almost over, and 4-H kids are preparing to show and sell their project beef animal. As you know, 4-Hers work hard to raise their top-quality steers, but most importantly they learn a lot in the process, like animal husbandry, tracking and recording expenses, and working in a team. 4-H leaves a positive impact on all those that participate.
In the past 15 months, our 4-H club has had to learn to communicate and function in a totally new way, and the 4-H motto, “Learn To Do By Doing”, has been a reality in a big way.
The sale for 2020 Sidney Beef 4-H Club was cancelled, and the members all learned that the marketing strategy for beef sales had to be flexible and creative. For 2021, we have decided to take our sale online. Our club will be selling our steers through a live online auction on July 3, 2021, at 4:30 pm. We invite you to check out unrauauctions.com where you can view the steers prior to the sale.
You may ask,” Why should I buy a 4-H steer”? One reason is that you support young people who are interested in the agricultural sector. Another reason is advertising. When a business buys a steer, we will advertise for you in the local paper and on our banners that we use at the local parades and fairs. When buying a local 4-H steer, you are buying premium, homegrown Manitoba beef!
Another question may be, “I want to support the sale, but I don’t need beef, now what”? Great news! When you buy a steer and do not want to take delivery of it, then the steer is taken to the Gladstone Auction Mart and auctioned off and you get a cheque. If you want to take delivery of the steer and have the animal processed, it is taken to Pinoy Foods and processed (you can take the animal to your farm or a processor of your choice).
Thank you in advance for your support of the Sidney Beef 4-H Club.
