Time to apply for 2009 Catch A Calf at National Western Stock Show
National Western Stock Show time is fast approaching, and with that, it is time to start thinking about applying for the Catch-A-Calf Program sponsored by the National Western Stock Show.
The National Western Stock Show Catch-A-Calf Program is a great program designed to promote youth development and understanding of the cattle feeding industry. This program can provide youth with an opportunity to be part of one of the best programs at the National Western Stock Show. Youth are encouraged to manage their projects from the mindset of commercial cattle feeding.
Applicants must be between the ages of 12 and 18 as of December 31, 2008 to apply, and also enrolled in 4-H at the time of application. Successful catchers must have adequate facilities available to house their steer as they are responsible for the care, feeding and handling of their animal.
Applications are due to Dinah Peebles (2775 Hwy 50; P.O. Box 20,000-5028; Grand
Junction, CO 81502-5028 postmarked no later than December 1, 2008. Additionally, applications will be posted on the National Western Stock Show Catch-A-Calf website at: http://www.NationalWestern.com/cac or contact your local Extension Office for an Application.
