December Entry #1: Fettes

As a young lad Dwayne Fettes was an eager-to-learn 4-H member, later on a 4-H leader and still is a great believer in and supporter of 4-H. With hard work, management and love of great cattle Dwayne Fettes, his wife Karen, and sons Tyler and Scott started DKF Red Angus in 1986. Granddaughter Brandy, is very keen and already involved in the family business working side by side with her parents Scott and Tina. Brandy, age seven had a great summer showing, with many accomplishments under her belt. Brandy’s little brother Eric, is another DKF cattleman of the future who enjoys helping his big sis!

December Entry #2: Robertson

“I first started showing cattle when I was seven years old at the Millarville Fair when my dad, Stuart Robertson had Salers cattle. Many years have passed and I still have fond memories of showing Salers and Black Angus cattle at The Calgary Stampede, Olds Fair, Lloydminster, Farmfair, Agribition and the Denver Stock Show.

My husband Alvin Pawlitza and I laugh when we look at the pictures of Georgia and all we can think is “we will still be dragging cattle for a long time!” I can see a lot of the same “determination and excitement” I used to have showing junior cattle years ago.

Both Alvin and I have met a lot of good people showing cattle and have made some lifelong friends because of it. Georgia is patiently waiting to become a Cloverbud member of theAbbey-Lancer 4-H Beef Club next year when she is six but, for now she will be showing her Junior Hereford cattle looking forward to the next Bonanza.”

— Mary-Kate Robertson
