Bite Into Beef
Bite Into Beef engages youth in activities to identify breeds, locate parts, judge, halter break a calf, fit a steer, show a calf, recognize a healthy animal, select feed ingredients and shop for beef and beef by-products.
Here's the Beef
Here’s the Beef challenges youth with activities related to leg structure, presenting oral reasons in judging, feed ingredients, behavior, nose printing, parasites, fitting, ethical issues, beef carcass composition and retail meat cuts.
Leading the Charge
Leading the Charge focuses on selection and judging, feeds, careers, health, reproduction, and meats and marketing encourage youth to deepen their learning.
A young person has asked you to serve as his/her helper for the Beef Project. You may be a family member, project leader or advisor, teacher or a neighbor. Your role in guiding, encouraging and rewarding progress is very important. How you choose to be involved will often determine the success the youth has in developing important life skills while learning what beef is all about.
