The Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation is seeking donations of steers for its 19th Annual Retail Value Steer Challenge feeding competition.

This is the primary fund raiser for the Foundation and by participating in the RVSC, contestants join other Nebraska cattle producers to support NCF projects.

Funds from the event support:

  • Youth and Adult Leadership Programs
  • NCF Education Programs – Scholarships
  • NCF Research Programs and Infrastructure Projects
  • History Preservation
  • Judging Teams at University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Northeast Community College, Norfolk and Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture, Curtis

Your involvement ensures these programs succeed. You also receive complete carcass data on your steer or steers and the chance to win prize money. And, you are helping the state’s leading industry sponsor programs that benefit our industry. Contributors should contact their tax professional as to the tax deductible status of this contribution. NCF is a 501 (3) C entity.

NCF welcomes steer donations by individuals, businesses, groups of individuals or businesses and NC affiliates. Participants can donate their own steer or purchase a steer from the foundation for $1,100.

Steers need to be delivered to Darr Feedlot at Cozad prior to Nov. 1.

Winners will be announced at the Nebraska Cattlemen Midyear Conference in June 2018.
