Beef Blast

Beef Blast is a program for 7th-12th grade students interested in beef cattle production. The program focuses on real world topics that impact the beef industry and youth producers. Students do not have to be enrolled in 4-H or own beef cattle.

Quotes from previous participants on what they learned:

“#1 reason cows are culled is because they won’t rebreed.”

“You can fit the whole repro tract in the bladder.”

“How API connects with stayability, docility and reproduction.”

“Sperm must have 30% motility to be viable.”

“Feed is the most expensive part of raising cattle.”
