Kansas Angus Association to host carcass data project

Kansas

The Kansas Angus Association Carcass Data Project is right around the corner, and producers are encouraged to submit data to be entered to win cash prizes and Certified Angus Beef LLC merchandise.

"This is a great way for producers who do not have the numbers to make a whole pen at a commercial feedyard to receive information, and know where they are doing well or can improve in their programs," says Kansas Angus Secretary and Manager Anne Lampe. "We invite Angus cattlemen to ask their bull customers to enter, so the beef industry can improve as a whole."

For the third year, the McPherson County Feeders, Marquette, Kan., will host the December competition.

To participate, producers must enter a minimum of five spring-born steers weaned at least 45 days prior to delivery, Dec. 27 to 29. Producers are responsible for their animal's transportation to Marquette.

The qualified lot of steers must have a minimum average weight of 550 pounds, be sired from a registered Angus bull and have a known sire or sire group, have completed an approved vaccination program, and have proper individual identification tags.

Entries are judged on the lot's top three steers with the highest Certified Angus Beef acceptance rates and quality grades. The KAA and CAB will offer up to $1,000 in cash awards and CAB merchandise to the owners of the top three entries. Each contest participant will also receive CAB logo merchandise.

For more information or to receive an entry form, visit www.kansasangus.org or contact Lampe at 620-874-4273 or kansasangus@wbsnet.org.
