2017 Central Club Yearly Report


Fall Bus Tour and Annual Meeting – Oct.28, 2016 . Our initial tour schedule didn’t work out quite as planned, but the day turned out to be fantastic. We started the day at the farm of Clarence Doerksen who showed us around his new barn, full of Brown Swiss animals. From there we went to see Neale Hockley’s farm, where we also enjoyed a pizza lunch. Finally we headed to CFB Shilo where we had a tour of the Artillery Museum. We held our Annual Meeting at Donovan Holsteins over lunch.


C.M.H.C Dairy Day – Jan. 25, 2017. Held once again in Carman at the Community Hall. We enjoyed a great day once again. Our morning speaker was Len Vis, from Ontario speaking on “The Life and Hard Times of Len Vis.” In the afternoon we heard from Paul Kernaleguen of Saskatchewan on “Dairy Stocksmanship”. Dairy Day continues to be a popular event for both producers and agribusinesses alike. Our attendance has been steady for the past number of years.


 Judging Clinic – March 31, 2017 at Readore Holsteins. This was another well attended event, with lots of interaction between official judges and others. Jamie Donohoe and Jon Fornwald were our judges for the day. This event is also great for our 4-H members


Awards Night – April 28, 2017 at the Rathwell Community Hall. We changed our awards a bit this year, using mostly DHI reports rather than having producers submit award forms. This seemed to work out well. Our entertainer was less the amazing, but the food and company was fantastic!


Central 4-H Dairy Open Show – July 13, 14 & 15, 2017 was held at the Carman Country Fair. We hosted our largest Open Show yet and it went well by all accounts. We held the 4-H Achievement on Thursday, judged by Sean Smith. The Open Show was held on Friday, judged by Lee Simanton. Both judges did a great job and the week was enjoyed by all.


C.M.H.C. Barbecue – August 2017 was held again at Treherne Park and Aquatic Centre. We served dinner and had the pool booked for an hour after that. The pool was a mite chilly, but the kids loved it! As always, it is difficult to plan an evening in the summer. We just have to book it, and hope for the best.


Fall Bus Tour & Annual Meeting – Oct. 30, 2017 – we plan to visit the Steinbach area – starting with Michael Andres, then Dirk Weiss, and finally Cliff Banman. We hope to hold our Annual Meeting that day as well.


2018 Dairy Day – January 31, 2018 at the Carman Community Hall. We have booked Trevor deVries as our keynote speaker, and hope to do a producer panel in the afternoon.
