The AKSARBEN Calf
Challenge Program, held annually in conjunction with AKSARBEN Stock Show,
provides 4-H youth an opportunity to showcase their knowledge of the beef
industry and their ability to raise a market steer. The steers are provided by AKSARBEN
Foundation and awarded to youths chosen through an application and skill-a-thon
Calf Challenge recipients must have exhibited at the current
year’s AKSARBEN Stock Show and have at least one year of exhibiting eligibility
remaining. In order to successfully
complete the project, participants have several requirements including: correspondence with their assigned sponsor, keeping records to determine actual cost of raising a
market steer, and participation in the 2017 AKSARBEN Stock Show.
