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 Stock Show. Youth are selected through an application process.
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 2019 Aksarben Stock Show.
