Lomond Beef Club holds dissection demonstration

The Lomond 4-H Beef Club had a project meeting and dissection with Dr. Carmen Langevin and Tasha on March 7. Club members had four calves that some friends and neighbors brought. The club was grateful to everyone who donated their dead calves to them.

First, members cut them open and looked inside the calf, and also took parts out.  They tried to find out as much as they could like: what made them die, how long were they dead for, and how old they were when they died. The 4-H members thought it was pretty cool and fun, and everyone got a chance to cut apart some organs. Carmen also showed them how a calf’s front leg is like a person’s arm.  And, she gave each member a bucket of supplies.

After the dissections, came the meeting. The club members talked about the Spring Steer and Heifer Show. The club had three members participate in it. Jenna Tytlandsvik showed her steer and heifer there. Heidi and Amy Fradette took part in the judging, team grooming and showmanship clinics.

The club had a public speaking report, as five members participated in area public speaking in Goodwater. They included Josh and Emily Alexander, Jayden Durr, Amy and Andie Fradette. The club will have a clipping day at the Robinson farm on Saturday, March 31.

The Lomond Beef and Homecrafts Club, along with the Lomond Light Horse Club, are holding a steak fry on Sunday, April 8 at the Tribune Hall from 4:30-6:30 p.m., with an auction to follow. The club asks for residents to come and support them.
