McPherson County Beef Day

Farm Forum

On June 27th seven community children along with 4-H youth advisor Jenna Malsom and Extension secretary Lindsey Gill got together to learn about the importance of Beef. This day was sponsored by a grant from South Dakota Beef Council. Jenna, went over keeping cattle healthy, proper Nutrition and different breeds of cattle. She also explained the different cuts of meat, location and how to choose a quality piece of meat. At the end of the day Jenna grilled up a sirloin, ribeye and a New York Strip steak from medium rare to medium. The kids got to enjoy about 6oz of steak a piece. This was an open activity to any child within McPherson County.
