4-H Beef Carcass Meeting

The committee for the Beef Born and Bred Carcass Contest would like to invite all 4-H and FFA members enrolled in the beef project in 2018 (including market steers, bucket calves and breeding heifers) to the Beef Carcass meeting on August 26 at 6:00 p.m. at the Anderson County Community Building at the fair grounds.  This will be an educational evening where attendees will learn about the beef carcass, characteristics, evaluation, retail cuts and quality concerns, and how to feed your calf to get a more desirable carcass.  A meal will be served.  The winners of the 2018 Anderson County Beef Born and Bred Carcass Contest will be announced, but you must be present to receive the prize money.  RSVP by calling the Anderson County Extension Office at 785-448-6826 or e-mail Ryan Schaub at rescaub@ksu.edu.
