Youth Heifer Program

The Midwest Heritage Youth Heifer Program helps young future farmers develop interest and experience in the beef cattle industry by awarding bred heifers to program recipients. Midwest Heritage will grant three bred heifers to up to five 7th and 8th graders. Over five years, recipients are responsible for management of the herd which includes daily care, record keeping and breeding. At the conclusion of the five years, recipients are responsible for paying back the initial market value of the three bred heifers.

“This program provides an excellent opportunity for youth to get started in raising cattle,” said Tracy Taylor, Midwest Heritage Market President. “The program goal is for these students to have established a foundation herd and gain financial self-sufficiency by the end of five years."
