Ben and Graves Peeler of Floresville competed in the 2011 Texas Cattle Feeders Association Junior Fed Beef Challenge at West Texas A&M University campus July 30.

Graves placed first in the Junior Oral Presentation and was awarded a plaque.

The Texas Cattle Feeders Association Junior Fed Beef Challenge allows 4-H and FFA students to gain industry knowledge and practical experience in commercial cattle feeding. Students feed a pen of three steers and then compete on the carcass merit of the cattle, plus their ability in record keeping, a written test, and a presentation to a panel of judges.

The feeders association represents the cattle-feeding industry in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Known as “Cattle Feeding Country,” this area is the largest cattle-feeding region in America and annually markets about 6.5 million fed cattle, or 30 percent of the nation’s fed cattle production.
