Student-Organized Cattle Show Teaches Lessons

Posted: Updated:

A student-organized cattle show is teaching all ages lessons in agriculture.

Eighty exhibitors showed 113 head of cattle this weekend at Fonner Park.

More than 30 members of UNL's Block and Bridles organize the Big Red Beef Show.

They said it's a way for youth to showcase their livestock, but also an opportunity for them to get experience planning a large event and sharing their ag message.

"A lot of the problems that we have between miscommunication between producers and consumers mostly comes from certain terms that we in the ag communication use and are very familiar, but others outside of our area might not be familiar with and may take in a negative term," said Laura Gorecai, UNL student. "I think it's important that we get on the same level of communication."

The event has traveled around the state, but Gorecai said - because of the new State Fair facilities - they'll likely keep it in Grand Island in the near future.
