SECTION A2C - DAIRY BEEF

Bedford County Fair Junior Dairy Feeder Steer Guidelines - January 2019

2. Project animal must be tagged by the 4-H Leader or FFA Advisor. RFID Tags and project enrollment form will be available at the Extension Office. Project enrollment form must be returned to the Extension Office by April 1. No late submissions will be accepted. $5 will be collected per tagged animal and returned with the project enrollment form. Checks made payable to “Bedford County Dairy Committee.”

3. Project animal can be any breed of dairy, (Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey, Milking Shorthorn, or Red & White) but MUST be pure bred dairy blood. No crossbreeding of dairy breeds or beef parentage.

4. All calves should be dehorned in time to be healed by the show. Calves should be castrated by May 1. Calves must be either cut or banded – Crimping will not be allowed. Dairy beef must be completely free of testicular development and healed at the show.

5. Calves must weigh between 350 lbs. and 650 lbs. on a grain fed diet by the Fair in order to show – Calves will be divided in three classes by weight following weigh-in: Light, Medium, and Heavy.

7. Members must declare at the scale whether to sell or take their project animal home. Feeders will not be sold through the livestock sale. The dairy steer committee will seek a predetermined bid for all feeders to be sold. Rope halters must be left with your steers for loading after the fair.
