4-H Steer Fitting & Showing Clinic

Join us June 11 at Manistee County Fairgrounds for Fitting & Showmanship Clinic with Ken Geuns of Ventura Farms and Hoof Trimming with Aaron Koetje of Koetje Quality Hoof Care.

This will serve as Manistee 4-Hers second steer check and you will have the option to weigh your Steer or Calf project on the digital scale.

While attendance is not mandatory, if you cannot attend it is up to the 4-Her to contact the Manistee 4-H Steer Committee to schedule your second steer check make up date! Other outside county youth may also attend without an animal to audit or observe the clinic for education requirements.
