Interclub 4-H Heifer Show

The 4-H year drew to a close for those members in the Heifer project last Sunday during the Interclub 4-H Heifer Show. Clandonald 4-H Beef Club and Vermilion 4-H Beef Club animals were judged by conformation judge Mike Gerlinsky and showmanship judge Mary Jones.

The Champion yearling heifer was shown by April Ockerman of Clandonald, followed by the Reserve Champion shown by Jesse Axley, also with the Clandonald club.

The Cleaver class had children between the ages of six and nine showing this year’s calves. “I truly believe anytime you can get kids on the end of a halter, that’s a good thing,” praised Gerlinsky. The Cleaver beef project has small children showing small animals. “I really like this idea,” Gerlinsky added. Each participant won awards in this class.

In the Champion cow/calf event, April Ockerman won the Grand Champion title with her two year old, followed by Reserve Grand Champion Robert Watson with the Vermilion Club.

Gerlinsky then moved on to judge the overall Champion Female class and pointed out that the yearling heifers had a sound structure and were very feminine. He assessed that the cow/calf pairs had proven themselves and were doing an excellent job with their calves.

After making his comments, Gerlinsky moved into the ring to select April Ockerman’s two-year-old cow/calf pair as Overall Grand Champion Female and then he moved onto the Reserve Champion, Robert Watson’s two-year-old pair.

Showmanship judge Jones said very few mistakes were made during the showmanship classes and she had to be extremely nit-picky. She could tell that a lot of work had been done at home.

Junior showmanship was awarded to Emerson Livingstone and Cavin Jones earned second place. Intermediate champion was Jesse Axley and reserve was Charlotte Wasylik. Senior showman Jock Ockerman won the class and was followed by his sister, April Ockerman. Jones concluded the competition by commenting that so many things were done right and “you should be very, very proud.”
