Elmvale 4-H Dairy Club
The Elmvale 4-H Dairy Club had its first meeting on Sunday April 24, 2022. It was held at Robins Holsteins (The Robinson Family Farm). We have 15 members. We are excited to start our club and we are really looking forward to showing at Fairs again. Melanie Giffen led us in ice breaker games to get to know one another. Sydney Robinson was elected President; Andrew Jones was elected as Vice President and Carina Jones was elected as Secretary and Press Reporter. Owen Wright taught club members the attributes of how to pick your calf for our 4-H projects. Kevin Jones taught us how to measure a calf. Carolyn Jones taught the club members how to judge and the judging format. At the end of the meeting, we enjoyed snacks and chats. We are looking forward to our next on May 29th at Gerald Stone’s for more judging practice.
