Fed Beef Challenge

Every spring, TCFA hosts its Fed Beef Challenge where member feedyards send their best steers or heifers to compete for top carcass honors. Also, live cattle evaluation contests allow feedyard managers, college students and the public to compete.

The Fed Beef Challenge is about more than bragging rights; it’s a learning experience as well as an opportunity to get together for a good time. Activities conclude with a steak dinner for all participants and fundraiser benefiting the TCFA Education Foundation.
