Dec 5, 2018
The Hoosier Beef Congress (HBC), the largest single state prospect cattle show held in the United States took place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on November 30th through December 2nd. For over three decades, the HBC has played an integral part in developing a passion for the beef industry and agriculture in Indiana’s youth. For many, it is a proud family tradition as many of the parents of today’s junior participants also showed at this event when they were young.
On Friday evening, almost 600 young exhibitors did their best in the Showmanship competition. Over 90 cattle were put through the Breed and All-Star sales on Saturday morning. The Junior shows saw about 1200 cattle sorted over two days by the three judges. The popular HBC tradeshow offered Indiana cattlemen and women examples of the latest in cattle handling equipment, feeds, educational demonstrations and retail shopping.
The live streaming of the HBC continues to grow in popularity for those who cannot be there in person...
