On May 14, the Eramosa 4H beef club held its second meeting of the year, which included a visit from a special guest.
The meeting was hosted at the Wallace family farm in Elora. The club started the meeting at 7:30pm with all members present. Club president Jordan Taylor opened the meeting with the 4-H pledge and then the club received the minutes of the previous meeting from secretary Malcolm Lindsay.
At this meeting the members of the club were fortunate to have Dr. Ken Bateman, member of the Ontario Veterinary College teaching hospital. Dr. Bateman is an expert on the reproductive health of cattle. He provided the 4-H members with an excellent power-point presentation, including many photos on reproduction of cattle and calving. The presentation was very informative to the eager to learn members.
After the club received the presentation, members were welcome to put on rubber gloves and view the wet specimens Dr. Bateman had brought for their viewing.
Our thanks to him for presenting such useful information to us. The meeting was closed with saying the 4H motto led, by Jordan Taylor.
Following the meeting members enjoyed delicious treats courtesy of the Wallace family.
