FIRST IN CLASS!
The first Challenge Program is off and running. Ten contestants were selected from a strong group of applicants to receive their steer on Saturday. Individuals from Kansas, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska came together at the Wagonhammer Ranch in Albion, NE to draw for their calf. Jay Wolf and Joe Epperly welcomed the group with an educational program that included the history of the ranch, tour of the feedlot, and close-up view of the feed mill. The youth will now feed, take care of, and keep records on their project for the next 9 months that will culminate with showing at the Aksarben Stock Show on September 22-25, 2022.
