SPECIAL TO
THE DALHART TEXAN

A new generation of cattle industry leaders is emerging, and 52 of those individuals made their way to the campus of West Texas A&M University on Friday, July 28, to show case their skills and knowledge at the 2017 TCFA Junior Fed Beef Challenge.

This annual contest allows students age nine through graduating seniors the opportunity to gain industry knowledge and practical experience in commercial cattle feeding. Students feed a pen of three steers and compete on their knowledge of their industry through a written test and an interview or oral presentation, depending on their division. Cattle performance points are also figured into the score to determine the winners of more than $20,000 in prizes, premiums and college scholarships.
