Mesa County Cattlewomen’s BBQ
Grand Junction, Colo.
Get ready! The Mesa County Cattlewomen are once again cooking up a luscious barbeque dinner at the Mesa County Fair on Saturday, July 25, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Served just prior to the Junior Livestock Sale, it’s the most delicious, nutritious meal on the grounds, and proceeds help fund 4-H and FFA scholarships and continuing education projects. Each year the group donates thousands of dollars to worthwhile projects on the fairgrounds to enhance the county fair experience for the participants as well as for the enjoyment and safety of the public. Last year they also donated a $500 beef to the local food bank and $2,500 to the Botanical Gardens for a sculpture depicting the western lifestyle.
The organization, founded in 1976 as the “Cowbelles,” is dedicated to the promotion of the beef industry through education of the general public regarding the benefits derived from cattle. We normally associate beef as being part of a satisfying meal. However, because 99 percent of the beef animal is utilized, items manufactured from beef by-products are all around us and used in our everyday lives. Textiles, asphalt, tires, drywall, fertilizer, and a huge variety of medicines, to mention just a few, all contain a beef by-product. The utilization of beef by-products is an important way the beef industry reuses and recycles and creates a better world for all of us.
So come on out to the Mesa County Fair on Saturday, July 25, and enjoy a good meal in the company of great people, and help sustain our wonderful western lifestyle by helping to encourage the next generation of young farmers and ranchers.
