Winneshiek County Cattlemen Beef Opportunity Program offers Grants to Students

The WCCA is giving grants for up to 3 young individuals in 6th - 10th grade toward the purchase of a beef-breeding female.  Recipients will be given $1,000 toward the purchase of a breeding heifer of their choice.  The heifer purchased must be a registered breed female and meet the requirements of the cattlemen.  The money will be reimbursed after the bill of sale is presented to the WCCA.  When the recipient returns to the Winneshiek County Fair as a cow/calf pair the following year, the recipient will be awarded an additional $500.  Click here for the application form which needs to be postmarked by November 10.  You may find more information about the program here.
