Youth recognized for cattle projects


Six Iowa youth were recognized with Iowa Beef Heifer Awards for their achievements with their purebred breeding heifer projects during the 2012 Iowa State Fair.

All 4-H, FFA and junior association members who own and exhibit a market beef or breeding heifer at the Iowa State Fair are eligible to enter. The award is coordinated by the Iowa Cattlemen's Association, and is sponsored by the Iowa State Fair and the beef breeds associations.
