Despite winter weather advisories of hazardous travel conditions, the Jan. 24-26 beef preview was a success. Thank you Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity for all your great planning and hard work. About 100 participants braved travel warnings of black ice, white out driving conditions, and wind chill temperatures of -20 below zero to show their prize cattle. Alpha Gamma Rho is an agricultural fraternity that cultivates lifelong leaders who strive for academic success and are highly respected and engaged in their communities and professions.
New Contest! AGR also announced a new contest at the beef preview. All registered participants received a packet of information inviting their 4H, FFA, church, school, or scout group to make a plan to raise funds for farmers with disabilities. The club that raises the most funds will win a cash prize of $500 for their group! Members of the Alto Active Achievers 4-H Club from Alto, MI helped assemble more than 200 packets for the beef preview as their first service project for this year. Their members range in age from 5 to 14, and are a hardworking, enthusiastic, and fun loving group. Thank you Alto Active Achievers for your support!
