On November 17th, 2022, four members of the Chatham County Youth Livestock Team travelled to the Upper Piedmont Research Station to compete in the Regional Cattle Working Contest. This competition involved identifying a set of beef breeds, equipment, and feed stuffs and also completing a Beef Quality Assurance test and a beef cattle husbandry test. Members worked together to develop a cattle processing plan and work two heifer calves through a chute weighing the animals, vaccinating, applying dewormer, and ear tagging based on Beef Quality Assurance protocols.

The Chatham County 4-H Team included Nathan Barbour, Mykalah Pettitt, Lilli Pilkington, and Emma Langley (alternate). Our team placed 3rd in our region and has been invited to compete in the state competition in April 2023. This team has had many nights of practice and we’re incredibly proud of how hard they’ve worked. Huge thank you to Loretta Batchelor and Ashley Robbins for hosting cattle working practices.
