Rivers 4-H Beef Club hosted its annual rally day on Sunday, June 7. The day started with every member weighing their steers. The steers were then tied in the barns to get them prepared for achievement day. Members then met with one of three clinicians; they rotated groups until each member had visited all three stations. Clinicians were Trevor Peters (grooming), Amy Peters (nutrition) and Wenda and Naomi Best (showmanship).
