Twenty-one 4-H & FFA members participated in the annual Advanced Cattle Feeder Class on Monday, June 8 at the Edgewood Livestock Commission in Edgewood.  Animals were weighed and ultrasound scanned, and the youth worked with ISU Extension and Outreach staff and feed industry representatives to calculate their total cost of production.
