Beef Ad Hoc Committee members, Heifer and Steer Superintendents met recently to discuss the details on the proposed 2015 Spring Born Rule for the State Heifer Show.  The following information was voted on and approved to be in effect for the 2015 State Heifer Show:

For the 2015 State Heifer Show, females born January 2013 (Yearlings) through Junior Heifer Calf (March 1, 2014 and after) will be allowed to show.  The committee realizes this is a big decision for the future of the Jr. Heifer project in Georgia and is asking for your input on the specifics of this rule change.  

The committee asks that you share this survey with all interested Agents, Agriculture Education Teacher's and Georgia Cattle Producers.  To provide the committee the appropriate amount of time to come back and discuss the findings, please respond no later than the close of business on Friday, September 13th.
