23rd Annual Dakota Feeder Calf Show and Feedout
The Dakota Feeder Calf Show helps participating North Dakota cattle producers identify cattle with superior growth and carcass characteristics by offering an opportunity to measure growth performance in a feedyard. After harvest, carcass quality and value also will be determined.
NDSU Extension partners with the Dakota Feeder Calf Show to provide producers an opportunity to experience retained ownership of calves beyond the cow-calf segment of cattle production.
Feedout project staff will gather data on the rate of gain, feeding costs and other characteristics during the trial. After the calves are marketed, the staff will collect and provide information to the entrants on carcass weight, meat quality and value.
