Thursday, June 4, 2020 - Friday, June 5, 2020

two youth exhibiting beef


We apologize that this event has been canceled.

Featuring: Kirk Stierwalt

Calling all beef exhibitors!

This is for youth of any ability level who want to improve their production herd practices and take their performance animal skills to the next level. Youth in grades 6-13 can take part in all activities. Younger 4-Hers may participate in the group demonstration and learning workshops if they have an adult chaperone.

Following the group demonstration, youth without an animal will participate in hands-on beef learning workshops!  The workshop series will cover a range of technical beef-industry topics that will be useful in both their production herds and 4-H Beef projects!

About the presenter

Kirk Stierwalt is an industry-leading livestock clinician. He combines live fitting demonstrations with one-on-one instruction personalized to address your needs. 

Bring your beef!

If you have a beef animal, bring it along! If you don't have one that's OK too. There will be a group clipping demonstration followed by hands-on instruction with Kirk and other livestock show professionals!  You may work with other 4-H'ers and their animals too.
