January 24, 2017—Athabasca, AB—The Athabasca UFA Farm & Ranch Supply store hosted a successful Hands-On educational workshop for local 4-H clubs. The event was well attended by over 60 members of not only Athabasca 4-H, but also the Colinton, Smith, Boyle, Rochester and Wabasca communities. Those in attendance learned how to stay safe on the farm while working with grain, how to take care of their animals and how to make halters.
“Members were very impressed with the new woodworking, ferrier and Kane Vet stations” commented Valerie Head of Athabasca UFA. “Some of the kids also asked me if I remembered them from last year, and mentioned that they really look forward to this event”.
Attendees also learned how to apply for the UFA 4-H credit program and how their club could win $3,000 with UFA’s 4-H Centennial contest, Standing Out from the Herd.
