March 29, 2017—Olds, AB—The Olds UFA Farm & Ranch Supply Store hosted a successful Hands-On educational workshop for local 4-H clubs. Over 35 4-H members from local Eagle Hill, Sundre, Bergen, Cremona, and Silver Sage Clubs attended and learned to do by doing. They learned how to stay safe on the farm while working with grain, how to maintain clippers and how to take care of their animals.
“The kids had a great time.” commented Michelle Tennant, Olds UFA Farm & Ranch Supply Store Manager. “The Farm Safety workstation was the best!”
“UFA believes that a true co-operative is more than just business. By investing in 4-H youth we’re able to help pave the way for our next generation to lead the way,” said Dina Sutherland, UFA Community Investment Manager.
UFA is excited to continue offering Alberta 4-H clubs the opportunity to learn to do by doing this fall. Stay tuned for our 2017/2018 schedule.
