Fort Belknap 4-H Private Treaty Livestock Sale Deemed a Success
September 2, 2020
According to MSU-Fort Belknap Reservation Extension Office Agent, Liz Werk, the 4-H Private Treaty Livestock Sale was a "great success." The 27 animals brought in a total of $72,554.00
4-H members from Lucky Charms (Dodson), Little Rockies (Hays), and Wild Horse (Fort Belknap Agency) clubs sold 14 steers and 13 hogs through a catalog-Facebook advertised-phone in system modelled after the Blackfeet Reservation's 4-H Livestock Sale. The hybrid-catalog sale idea was adopted by Werk under the guidance of Verna Billedeaux, an agent with the Federally Recognized Tribal Extension Program.
