Jordan Hevner of Adkins was chosen as one of 22 incoming juniors and seniors with an interest in the cattle feeding industry, to attend the fourth consecutive Fed Beef Career & Leadership Camp, also known as “Feedyard Camp.” The camp, sponsored by Texas Cattle Feeders Association, is held in conjunction with West Texas A&M University and Texas AgriLife Extension.

The three-day camp, held June 25-27 in the Texas Panhandle, began with a cattle feeding version of “Are You Smarter than a Fifth-Grader,” which tested campers on their knowledge of different aspects of the beef industry. The group then toured a feedyard where they learned the daily routine of a feedyard manager, the process of bringing cattle in and out, and how the mill works to produce feed. The evening was spent at the Texas Cattle Feeders Association office in Amarillo learning about the association. The night concluded with a newly added communications component that allowed students to participate in four real-life scenarios to help them develop talking points and other skills to represent the beef industry in a positive way.

The next day, the group spent time at the West Texas A&M University Research Feedlot and Nance Ranch, where they learned more about cattle care and handling, how to properly evaluate and process live cattle, and calculate and mix a feed ration.

The afternoon offered a unique experience, as the youth were led on a retail meat counter tour at Walmart and a tour at Tyson Fresh Meats in Amarillo to understand the process that takes place in a packing plant. To complete the evening, campers had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion with feedyard professionals.

The final day of Feedyard Camp was spent learning about carcass anatomy at the West Texas A&M University meat lab, where the students participated in a palatability test and fabricated their own steaks for lunch.

Texas Cattle 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 -- 30 percent of the nation’s fed cattle production.
