Carcass Challenge is designed to provide an opportunity to donate to the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation while creating a venue for friendly competition based on performance and carcass merit of cattle.
Ways to Participate
1. Individuals that own cattle:
a. An individual can donate one or more steers that weigh between 600 and 800 lbs.
b. Steers should be weaned for a minimum of 45 days, vaccinated, bunk broke, dehorned and castrated prior to delivery. The Oklahoma Quality Beef Network (OQBN) protocol for vaccination and preconditioning is highly recommended. Weaning deadline is October 16, 2016.
2. Individuals that DO NOT own cattle:

b. For individuals, not part of a collective group, interested in purchasing a portion of a steer contact Jeff Jaronek at (405) 235-4391 or (580) 819-1753 for more information.
c. For individuals or collective groups of individuals wanting to purchase a steer the cost of a steer will depend on markets at the time of purchase.
1. Steer delivery date and times are as follows: Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 10 AM - Noon, 1 -3 PM
A final report that contains all data collected will be provided to each donor.
At the conclusion of the feedout, cattle will be evaluated, ranked and winners will be announced in the following categories at the Annual OCA Convention and Trade Show:
- Average Daily Gain (ADG)
- Carcass Value
- Overall (Highest profit margin)
OCF strongly encourages each individual to speak with their own tax representative as to the details of his or her own situation and to the deductibility of their contribution.
