Interested in showing cattle? Check out these leasing opportunities!

Interested in learning more about cattle?  Want to try your hand at raising a calf for the summer?  Then this is for you!  All 4-Hers are invited to join us in the 4-H Dairy Beef Adventure or the Dairy Leasing Program this year! 

The Dairy Beef Adventure is for those interested in showing a Beef Builder calf.  Through the program, you will learn how to raise and show your calf.  You will receive all the supplies needed to raise your calf until the County Fair and participate in the Dairy Show (with heifers) or Beef Show (with steers). You will even have the option to purchase your calf and show it as a Market Beef in 2019!  The cost for this program is $75.

Maybe a dairy heifer is more your style?  Join us for the Dairy Leasing Program and lease your own heifer for the summer!  Participants can choose between a Jersey Fall Calf, Jersey Winter Calf, Holstein Fall Calf or Holstein Winter Calf.  This program does not have a fee, but each family is responsible for their own feed expenses.  Following the fair, all heifers will be returned back to their farms.

Interested?  Check out the flyers below and sign up online at by February 15.
