Beef Breeding Project

The most complex type of beef project is the breeding project. In this program the 4-H member keeps one or more cows and breeds them to produce calves for show, for sale as weaned feeders or for transfer to their own backgrounding , marketor heifer projects. The cows may be registered purebreds or commercial grades and crossbreds, depending on the market and desired off-farm activities of the 4-H member.
