Tulsa Stockyards Hosts Commercial Cattle Grading Contest

Tulsa Stockyards Hosts Commercial Cattle Grading Contest
The annual Tulsa Stockyards Commercial Cattle Grading Contest will be held June 25. Open to all 4-H and FFA members across Oklahoma, the event introduces participants to live cattle evaluation and educates them on current grading practices. To excel in the contest, students must accurately assess each animal's gender, age, frame size, muscling and body condition.

After providing a tutorial for first-time participants, officials from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODAFF) and the USDA grade the cattle to provide a standard against which participants' gradings are measured.   

Awards are presented to the top 4-H and FFA individuals and teams. As a first-time sponsor, American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) will provide additional scholarship money to the top individuals in the 4-H and FFA categories. Farm Credit of East Central Oklahoma will sponsor lunch for all contestants and their 4-H and FFA advisors.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the contest will begin at 10 a.m. For more information, contact ODAFF Agriculture Marketing Coordinator, Jason Harvey at 405-522-5563 or jason.harvey@ag.ok.gov.
