The Bear Paw 4-H Club’s Shyanna Leon led a cooperative lamb into the auction ring at this year’s 4-H Fair. 

This year, the 4-H Fair held near Charging Home Stampede Park during and in advance of the Celebration of Healing was, by any measure, a true success. Young people were supported by phalanxes of adult volunteers who worked with them to prepare the exhibition barn, food service area and parking around the site.

The events began on Tuesday, July 5, with market animal weigh-ins, followed by project interview judging first thing Wednesday morning. The Exhibit Building opened that day, and the Beef Pre Show was held that evening.

Showmanship and judging came on Thursday, July 7, for beef, swine and sheep while dog, rabbit, poultry and cat showmanship took place Friday morning. All these events led up to the annual 4-H Livestock Auction, with Ryan Perry of Western Livestock Auction officiating the event.

“It was so great to see the community come out and watch the showmanship shows, wander through the animal barns and exhibit building to see what the 4-H members are doing throughout the 4-H year,” Blackfeet MSU Extension Agent. “The support at the Auction was amazing. Thank you everyone for supporting our youth!

“If anyone wants to enroll for 4-H in the new year (October 2022), just call the MSU Blackfeet Extension Office, or message us on the Blackfeet 4-H Facebook page.

This year’s 4-H winners list follows.
