The Drumheller and District 4H show was held on Monday, June 4 at the Delia Arena.

Youngsters and teens from all over the area gathered to see how their stock would fair in the competition.

It was a successful day for Delaney McDougald, who won Delia Grand Champion for her calf/cow pair.

"It was really good, I was surprised that I won because I wasn't too sure that my cow was able to win," explained McDougald. "I washed her, clipped her, walked around the tractor, led her around the whole barn. My cow was really long in the length, and had a nice body. My calf was also built really good. 4H is a really good experience. I would recommend it for anybody."

Among the competition, was Carter Reed. With a couple of years of 4H under his belt, he hoped for a good turnout.

"I am selling my market steer today. His name is Stewie. He is just over 1400 pounds, and he is short and fat," chuckled Reed. " I worked with him year round, constantly brushed him and led him around. I tried to make him my friend so today was a lot easier for me. I hope to get higher up, closer to Grand Champ this year."

Reed won Reserve Champion Steer later that day.

Among the many veterans of 4H, there are some newcomers as well. Youngster Carson Morlock was excited to show off all his hard work.

"I am showing and selling my steer today. I am also helping my friend show his cow and calf," explained Morlock. "I worked with my calf lots, led him around, scratched him and sat in the pen lots."

Grand Champion Steer was won by Brett Holowath.
