The 27th Annual Hoosier Beef Congress, scheduled for Dec. 6-8 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, will showcase 1500 head of cattle to be exhibited by kids ranging in age from third grade to 21 years of age.
During the weekend, along with the steer and heifer show, several other events will take place, like the All Star Steer & Heifer Sale and Purebred Sales on Dec. 7 at 9:30 a.m.
Exhibitors not only have the opportunity to showcase their cattle (both steers and heifers), but also compete in various other contests, like the poster and photography contests.
The Hoosier Beef Congress trade show opens Friday morning with lots of vendors offering everything from cattle equipment to stocking stuffers for your showman or your showgirl.
New this year, the events will be live-streamed on the internet. The Indiana Beef Cattle Association and the Hoosier Beef Congress, through DVAuction, are providing the service. Persons interested in watching the action can access DVAuction either through the Indiana Beef or Hoosier Beef Congress websites. After a short registration process, anyone will be able to view all of the shows in real time at no charge.
A complete show schedule for each ring camera will also be available.
A schedule of events, online auction information, showmanship contest rules and tradeshow hours can be found on www.hoosierbeefcongress.com. Come on out for a fun-filled weekend.
