4-H steers: Show Ring to Grill
My daughter's Angus steer won Grand Champion Beef Carcass this year. The photo was taken with my phone, so it isn't the "best" quality, but the steer was the best quality: he graded high choice, weighed 734 pounds, had a 13.3 square inch ribeye and a yield grade of 2.3. If you are not familiar with those grades, check out the information at BeefItsWhatsforDinner.com.

Many people enjoy buying their beef by the side, and having it in their freezer ready to use at any time. If you are interested, I encourage you to contact a local meat locker and ask if they sell beef (or pork) by the side and if they rent lockers--which may help so you don't have to own a freezer. Also, most local meat lockers will sell you certain cuts of meat and advise you on packaging and even cooking information. Do not be afraid to ask questions--they want to make sure you get what you want! If you have any questions about buying local meat, don't hesitate to ask me. I'll tell you my thoughts and help you find someone in your area.
