The principal objective of the Georgia Beef Challenge program is to provide information to beef producers they can use in managing and marketing their product. The program will provide cow-calf producers information on feedlot performance, average daily gain and carcass data on one or more steers/heifers entered. This information can be used by the producer to change breeding and management programs or as a basis for change in a producer's marketing program. Producers may use data obtained from participation with high performing steers as a tool in selling their cattle.
