The Agri-Business Council of the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Norfolk Beef Expo, a live market calf show and auction, every September, at the Northeast Community College Chuck M. Pohlman Ag Complex.
It is open to youth throughout Nebraska between the ages of 8 and 19 as of the previous January 1st. The Beef Expo is a tradition for many families and will be celebrating its 70th year in 2019. Save the Date! The 2019 Beef Expo will be held September 7 – 8, 2019.
In 2018, the calf show had 138 entries from 30 Nebraska counties in competition for the grand champion market steer and market heifer titles. Exhibitors are also able to compete for prizes in the showmanship and team fitting contests.
Students interested in participating in the show must fully complete the Beef Expo Entry Form and Animal Care Form and submit them to the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce no later than September 3, 2019. Please carefully read and follow all Beef Expo Rules.
High school juniors and seniors who exhibit at the Beef Expo, and are planning to major in agri-business or a related field, may also apply for a $500 scholarship. The Beef Expo Scholarship Application must be received at the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce no later than October 14, 2019.
Friends, family and the general public are invited to attend and help support exhibitors. They may do so by participating in the premium auction that is held immediately following the 5 pm selection of champions, contributing to the “buyers pool,” and/or helping to sponsor this annual event. All buyers pool contributions go directly to the participants and are not used for the profit of the Agri-Business Council.
Please submit the Ag Council Sponsorship Form with your payment to the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce no later than August 30, 2019, to be recognized in the show program. This sponsorship form also offers the opportunity to sponsor the June Northeast Nebraska Ag Banquet. A 10% incentive discount is offered if you choose to sponsor both events!
