These young people have worked hard caring and preparing their calves to exhibit and sell.
This year we would like to invite all of the sponsors to the steer show which will begin at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14 at the Logan County Extension Complex. Following the show, a dinner will be held for all sponsors, youth and their families. The steer sale will follow the meal and begin at 7 p.m. We feel that the sponsors of this very important project deserve to see what is involved in showing calves and the hard work they have put forth.
Steer buyers will be honored through local media, newspaper, radio and at the Cattlemen’s Appreciation Dinner this fall.
As a buyer, you have the option of either taking possession of the steer or selling it to a packer. A floor price will be set per pound the day of the sale based on the cattle quality and the cattle market. Buyers will begin bidding at the price set for show placings and if you wish to pay only the amount above the base price and allow the steer you purchased to be sold to the packing company, you may do so. However, if you wish to take possession of the steer, you will need to pay the full price. The minimum steer weight on show date is 1,000 pounds.
The steer exhibitors are also selling raffle tickets to help support their beef project. One ticket is $5 or you can purchase 3 tickets for $10. Prizes include $1,000 (1st), $500 (2nd), and case knife set and many other items.
There will also be a beef breeding show at 9 a.m. on July 14 that will include heifers and bulls and is open to anyone who wishes to participate. At 1 p.m. after the steer weigh-in will be the 4-H rabbit show followed by Beef showmanship at 2:30 p.m.
Please come out and support our youth. If you would like to make a donation you can see myself or any other steer committee member.
