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. Many exhibitors in the 4-H & FFA market beef show see only the show ring aspect of beef production, not the real-world aspects of feeding cattle for today’s marketplace.  The Advanced Cattle Feeder Class focuses more on the real-world aspects of feeding to a target market, focusing on the cost of production, and meat quality.
