Hands-on with UFA in Athabasca

< Back
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.

“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 with educational workshops at select UFA locations through the end of March 2017. Each workshop is unique and participants are guaranteed to develop life skills and new friendships all while having fun!
