2017 Education, Performance & Carcass Contest

The Education, Performance, and Carcass Contest wrapped up and the results have been tallied. The Banquet was held on Wednesday August 2, 2017 at the Peppermill in Valentine, Nebraska. Over 50 people gathered to listen to speaker Steve Scholz talk about his program at the Lincoln County Feedyard in Stapleton, Neb. The contest is spread over a six month period where animals are fed and monitored to accurately track their growth and help to determine the ranches that entered the best beef in several categories.
