We’re proud that the Minnesota Beef Expo is one of the largest youth cattle shows in the Upper Midwest. Each fall, judges sort through almost 1000 head of cattle to pick the best of the best. But, it’s the 500 kids that are behind those cattle that matter most. We’re proud to offer a weekend where kids can showcase their livestock knowledge and compete in events that help build strong industry leaders. Because while raising a champion heifer is great, it’s even better to raise champion kids who will go on to be the future leaders of the beef industry.

Are you ready to test your beef industry skills? Join us for the 2018  Minnesota Beef Expo! Don’t have an  animal to show yet? No worries! Join us for our Knowledge Bowl, Judging Contest, Fitting Contest or the Minnesota Beef Ambassador competition. Or sit in on  our Thursday night MYBEP Ideas & Insights Symposium  where we will teach interested youth the ins and outs of raising cattle and then stay until Saturday for the sale. If you buy a heifer in our sale on Saturday, you can show it the next day.

If you are one of our Beef Expo veterans, get revved up for Sunday when we will crown a new  Minnesota Beef Expo Premier Exhibitor! Get points for competing in all of junior activities and how your top animal does. Our top five exhibitors will be announced during the Supreme Heifer Selection on Sunday. Not only will you walk away with the prestigious title, but there also will be prizes you won’t want to miss!
