The beef industry values sustainability. We value successful operations that are passed on to generation after generation. That is why beef producers support youth programs.
Those of you who know me personally, know I am way too busy for my own good. I've learned to say no and am making strides in simplifying. When the beef project leader in my kid's 4-H club came open, I should have kept my mouth shut. Instead, I volunteered to be the leader, because I value educating youth. I wanted to pay it forward and help kids fall in love with cattle the way I did.
On Friday July 8th will be our Sturgeon Beef Show. I hope those of you in mid-Missouri will come out and enjoy the successes of our youth.
If you are interested in sponsoring a breed champion, please let me know. Thanks to those who have already sponsored.
Watch the blog for pictures of my little ones falling in love with cattle. If you time driving by my house just right, you might even catch a glimpse of a computational geneticist trying to catch a calf out in the pasture. :)
