SPC

The American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA) recently released its new junior program, the Steer Profitability Competition (SPC). The SPC is designed to provide members of the AJSA meaningful exposure to the opportunities and challenges associated with cattle feeding. The SPC will not only allow participants to measure and compare the profitability of their own animal(s), but of greater importance will introduce young beef enthusiasts to peers, mentors, industry advocates, and experiences that are exceedingly difficult to acquire for any beef producer. Participants in the SPC program will be powerful voices as they transition from junior membership to adult participation within the beef industry.  

AJSA youth interested in entering the SPC must hold an active AJSA membership, and can enter one, two or three head of steers. The SPC is a terminal contest, marketed on a grade and yield grid. Steers must be entered in the American Simmental Association (ASA) database, with one parent registered in the ASA database. An informational meeting will be held on September 27 for any youth interested. All animals must have an ownership deadline of October 1, and be entered into the SPC no later than October 15, although earlier entry is encouraged. Steers will be picked up at regional locations and transported to Chappell Feedlot in Chappell, Nebraska, on November 1, 2016. Steers must have a birth date of January 15 to April 15, 2016, and weaned August 15 to October 15, 2016. All animals must be castrated, horn-free, weigh 500-750 pounds at pick up, and have a docility score of 1-3. Steers must also meet a health prerequisite prior to pick up. Slaughter will occur in early May at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan, Colorado.

Exhibitors must agree to attend mandatory monthly online meetings and submit monthly reports. Profitability will be determined by subtracting accrued cost from final valuation. Awards will be presented for the top-three animals overall, as well as the top-three Pen of 3 overall at the 2017 National Classic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Exhibitors interested in entering the SPC, should contact ASA Youth Director Emily Lochner, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
