Marshall Co. To Host 50th Annual Quality Beef Day

The 50th Annual Quality Beef Day will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at Hedstrom Hall in Marysville, Kansas.

Quality Beef Day will start by holding a livestock judging contest. The livestock judging contest will begin at 9:15 A.M. Registration for the livestock judging contest will begin at 8:30 A.M. Anyone can participate in the livestock judging contest.

Following the livestock judging contest, the livestock show will begin.

The show order will be bulls, market beef, showmanship, and breeding beef.

The following breeds will make up the classes for Quality Beef Day: Angus, Hereford, Charolais, Shorthorn, Simmental, Crossbred/AOB (Market Beef only), Commercial (females only), and Registered All Other Breeds.

There will be three classes of beef showmanship: juniors, intermediates, and seniors. Six $50 Valley Veterinary Supply Gift Certificates and/or awards will be presented to the Champion Overall Market Beef, Champion Junior Showman, Champion Intermediate Showman, Champion Senior Showman, Supreme Heifer, and Top Youth Livestock Judger.

Unlike many spring Livestock Shows that charge entry fees, Quality Beef Day has awards that are donated by many Marshall County and area businesses, which will be awarded to the champions of the various classes. Also, ribbons will be given to participants.

Check-in will be from 7:00 to 9:00 A.M. and the show will start at 10:00 A.M. The Livestock Judging Contest will start at 9:15 A.M. Pre-registration of beef entries by April 1, 2010 to the Marshall County Extension Office would be appreciated and will make check-in the day of the show faster.

If you are interested in showing cattle, or would like to see good cattle; then you should make plans to attend the 50th Annual Quality Beef Day.
