Calf Challenge

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 process.

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 2018 AKSARBEN Stock Show.
