Calf Challenge Program

2023 Aksarben Stock Show Entries are CLOSED

Challenge Steers Get New Home

The 2023 Calf Challenge Program was officially kicked off on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022. Exhibitors from Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Montana and Nebraska met at Broken Bar Ranch, LLC in Wellfleet, NE to pick up calves. We spent the morning listening to Jeremy Martin discuss their family operation, and exhibitors were given insight on feeding and management practices for their projects this year. Thank you to the Martin Family for providing a great set of calves! Good luck to the exhibitors as they work towards the 2023 Aksarben Stock Show!
