Red Deer West 4-H Beef Club kicked off the 2014/2015 club year with our organizational meeting on Oct. 20 at Ridgewood Hall.

We voted our new executive board, which consists of: President Shannon Bickley; Vice-President Jenaya Moore; secretary Courtney Armitage; treasurer Reid Depalme; club reporters Kyle Belich and Parker Depalme; historians Paulina Wolswinkel, Jayden Bickley and Emilee Bickley; parliamentarian Wacey Townsend; and general leader Dana Depalme.

This year, we have 24 members in our club. Six of those are new to beef 4-H.

We had weigh-in on Nov. 1 at Burnt Lake Auction Mart. Thank you to Mel Glencross for the use of the auction mart and Dennis Magill for running the weigh scale for us. We weighed in 24 market steers and 10 carcass steers. Female projects this year are nine heifers and 12 cow/calf pairs.

Our first club activity will be on Dec. 8 at Lazer Force with our gift exchange and potluck supper. Our club will then prepare for public speaking and presentations in February.

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters. Our club has many great opportunities with your support. We are looking forward to another great year of 4-H.
