This meeting will be an excellent opportunity for the kids and parents to ask many questions.  A sample pen of steers will be on hand for viewing, judging, and for asking questions.

A few questions kids should be asking themselves. What should I be looking for when selecting my steer?  What should I be doing with my steer once I get him home?  What should I be feeding him and how much?

Hope everyone is able to make this meeting and Thanks to the McMillen family for hosting it.
