The Ilderton 4H Sheep Club

Learn to do by doing!

4H clubs are all around the world. Their purpose is to help people learn while having fun.

In this site, you can read about...

Our club

The leaders of our club are Brenda Gallagher, Ramond Vail and Ruthan Vanderlaan(Mrs.V). The club works on a yearly basis and every month, we have a meeting. This year, the club's topic is health and breeding, so at our meetings, that's we we talk about. We also prepare ourselves for the Western Fair and the Ilderton Fair. Each member needs to pick a lamb and that becomes their project which they will show at the 2 fairs. In the first meetings, we discuse how to choose our lambs, depending on if it's a breeding ewe or a market lamb. In the following meetings, we discuse how to make it look good for the show, to take care of it and so on.

This year, the club saved up enough money to go on a trip to two major sheep farms in Ontario. We also have different activities like the judjing competion where many different clubs from the region get together and learn how to judge anything from sheep to first aid kits.

Their are many differant 4H clubs, not just sheep. Their are babysitting clubs, cooking clubs, swine clubs and they're all around North America. They give kids an opportunity to meet new people and learn whatever they are interessted in all while having fun. They also teach kids a sense of responsibility. The 4Hs stand for: Head, Hands, Head and Health. So whatever your interests, 4H clubs are a great way to develop them!
