From little hands to big leaders; Grow with AJSA

SPC Data Dive: By The Numbers:  View the recording here

February 6, 2017 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM MST

What can we learn from the data collected at the feedyard during the SPC project? Intake, average daily gain, feed gain? Absolutely. But what else? Dr. Rachel Endecott, ASA Director of Youth Development and Special Projects, will lead a discussion about just what else we can find in that set of data.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions when you attend the LIVE webiniar.  The ASA will record this webinar for access at your convenience.

AJSA Youth Development Scholarship

The American Simmental-Simbrah Foundation (ASF) is collecting donations to fund six scholarships for young beef enthusiasts that participate in the Steer Profitability Competition (SPC). A goal of $12,000 has been set to create scholarships, and help pay the expense of capturing feed intake and carcass data. The SPC challenges participants, ranging in age from eight to 21, to measure and compare the profitability of their own animals, through monthly meetings, lectures, essays, and reports. Last year, 31 beef industry youths enrolled 66 cattle from nine different states. During their involvement, they were introduced to peers, mentors, industry advocates, and experiences that are exceedingly difficult to acquire for any beef producer.  Go to www.simmental.org/foundation to donate.
