NILE introduced Merit Heifer Class of 2021

Congratulations to these young men and women! They will receive heifers from their gracious donors this fall. After a year of monthly reports, monthly meetings with industry professionals, breeding the heifers, and completion of other requirements these recipients will show at the 2023 NILE and then take full ownership of their heifers. We’re excited to see young people interested in agriculture, and especially the beef cattle industry!

Thank you, donors, past and present — we couldn’t do this amazing program without you!

Special thanks to Phillips 66 for sponsoring this program.
