The beef project teaches the fundamentals of the beef cattle industry. But it is not all work and no play! With things like the calf scramble for scholarships and money towards your next project, the memories gained through this project are going to last a lifetime. You will explore all areas of the industry such as animal husbandry, livestock selection, health, and care. You can also compete with beef cattle at local, county, state and national cattle shows.
There are so many people more than willing to help you out, both local families and your county extension office. In the project you will learn:
- Proper nutrition
- Proper care for your animal
- Decision making
And you can also learn through various other opportunities:
- Public Speaking
- Community Service
If you need any type of accommodation to participate in a program or have questions about the physical access provided for an event, please contact the AgriLife Extension agent in your county. Requests for accommodation should be made at the time of registration for the event or at least two weeks prior to the program or event.
