The North Central WI Cattlemen’s Association invites the public and those raising beef or wanting to learn about beef production to the Beef Round-up on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at Brecke Rodeo Arena, W7939 Hwy 64, Medford, WI. The Round-up will be held from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.
New this year, the NCWCA Beef Preview Show will be held in conjunction with the annual Round-up. All students within or out of Wisconsin planning for upcoming fairs and shows are invited to participate. The NCWCA Preview consists of Jackpot Showmanship for students ages 8 to 22, a Junior Market Steer Show, and an Open Heifer Show (for both youth and adults). $200 grand champion steer and heifer and $100 reserve grand champion steer and heifer are being awarded. The NCWCA Preview will be an excellent event for both the exhibitor and their animal(s) to gain experience for the 2017 fair and show season.
Gates to the NCWCA Preview will open at 7 am; check-in and weigh-in closes at 9:30 am. A Showmanship Clinic begins at 9 am. The Preview begins at approximately 12:30 pm, with Jackpot Showmanship immediately following the conclusion of the NCWCA Seed stock Sale.
