Dresses hree local youth participated in the 112th Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, Livestock
Show, that wrapped up on Sunday, March 31st in Brandon.
Easton Paterson, Rylee Paterson and Shayla Woychyshyn all belong to the Erickson
4-H Beef Club and have enjoyed the experiences this event has offered them. The trio
spent all week attending classes and showing off their heifers in hopes to not only gain
more experience, but to soak in all the learning opportunities as well.
Preparation for events such as these start months in advance. One must work with

their calves daily, halter breaking, bathing and training the calves hair to go forward, by
brushing it a certain way. This trick makes the calves bodies appear longer than normal.
Dedication is definitely a trait all three of these ladies have.
Colony Rylee Paterson is 14-years-old and has belonged to the 4-H Beef Club for seven
years. During the fair, Rylee participated in the Showmanship class and the Shorthorn
Application class with her heifer, Sophia. This is Rylee’s second year participating at the Winter Fair.
“I really like being here and learning new things. It has been a lot of fun and I have met

some really nice people. Last year we were new and didn’t know anyone, but this year
we know more people which makes it nicer.” Rylee received fourth in the Shorthorn
