Seven 4-H & FFA members participated in the annual Advanced Cattle Feeder Class on Monday, June 20 at the Edgewood Livestock Commission in Edgewood.  Animals were weighed and ultrasound scanned, and the youth worked with Extension and feed industry representatives to calculate their total cost of production.  The youth were then interviewed by a judge while the carcass results of their calves were calculated.   A “show” was then held to exhibit their animals for the audience with the participants explaining the performance and costs for their project, and the judge sharing his comments and thoughts.
