Welcome!!!! We are so excited to kick off the 2020-2021 Beef Club year!!!!!
We are so excited to welcome you all to the 2020-2021 Beef Club Year. We know this year is going to look a little different but we are ready to take whatever challenges arise and make the best of it.
The January Beef Club Meeting for 2021 has been CANCELLED.
At this time we are planning a February Meeting (Usually weigh-in takes the place of this meeting but since we moved weigh-in we are planning a meeting). The next meeting is scheduled for February 15, 2021 at 7:00pm. We will let you know if this meeting will be in person or via Zoom.
The Second and final Beef Club Weigh-in for the 2021 year will be March 6, 2021 from 9:00am-12:00pm at the Shipshewana Auction Barn in Shipshewana, IN on State Road 5. You must be prepared to bring your market and crossbred animals to one of our two offered weigh-ins. You only need to bring your animals to one of the two offered dates.
Please note new this year: You do not need to bring registered purebred heifers to weigh-in. Please also note new this year: All purebred steers and heifers need to have registration papers. We need you to bring the originals for us to weigh-in for your steers; we will make a copy for you. We need to see the originals. We will also check in your purebred heifers. Please bring your purebred heifer registration papers with you. We will make a copy of these papers and get these heifers registered to you for the fair.
We will offer RFID tags if you need them for a charge. Please know you really need to work with your breeders to have these placed for you before weigh-in. We will also offer a pour on wormer for a charge. Monte Flowers will also be set up if you would like to have your calves hooves trimmed.
We are so excited to start the new 4-H year with you!! If you know anyone who is interested in the club please let a leader know we would love to talk with them!! If you have any questions about the new year let us know!! This is going to be a great year!!!
If you will be new to our club this year WELCOME!!! Please let us know if you have any questions; we are happy to help and we want to get your experience in the Beef Club started out right!!!
