Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup event


The Neepawa Banner

August 4-6 will be the Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup 10th year in Neepawa. This exciting three-day event will bring together junior members, 4-Hers, and enthusiasts from all across the province.

The show is organized by representatives from various cattle breeders that have been involved with national and provincial shows in the past. Our goal is to prepare young entrepreneurs in the livestock industry, through this exciting showcase of youth, cattle and friendly competition. This event will educate, encourage, stimulate and unite participants in the business of agriculture and the beef industry.  It encompasses a variety of competitions to match all interests and skill levels of participants. Some of the events are team grooming, individual and team judging, showmanship, marketing, sales talk, impromptu speeches, art, photography, scrapbooking, as well as cattle classes
This will be a celebration and showcase of Manitoba youth and agriculture.  We encourage young and old to stay involved in the agriculture industry, explore career opportunities, increase national trade and awareness and be proud to be part of one of Canada’s largest industries.  We feel the celebration of our past shows exemplifies the importance of youth and agriculture and will strive to present innovative opportunities that promote and educate future cattleman dedicated to the cattle industry.
New in 2017 will be a low stress cattle handling workshop, stockman knowledge competition, public speaking and roundup ambassador competition, advocacy workshop and invitations for 4-H Champion Females from each 2017 Club Achievement to attend Roundup, with entry fee paid by Roundup.  Along with Ag Challenge competitions, cook-off, cattle shows, scholarships and selection of the Canadian Western Agribition Team.
