MEEKER | The It’s Showtime Livestock Club has been busy in the community and with many 4-H responsibilities. For community pride and volunteer projects the club helped the 9 Health Fair setup and teardown, then some of the club members stuffed Easter eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt. In the monthly meetings several members of the club presented their demonstrations. Leaders and members Kathy Collins, Beth Wille, Fayanna Seely, Mary Baylie and Marryn Shults have done species specific groups to educate 4-Hers on feeding, showing, and judging their animals. On May 12 livestock 4-H members attended the goat, sheep, and pig weigh-in and round robin clinic. The leaders from the livestock clubs taught sessions about showing each species, this included beef, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, poultry, rabbits. The next meeting is going to be on June 19.
