The cattlemen's challenges a futurity where producers around the state enter a steer or heifer. All of the cattle are put on hay for two weeks to equal out shrinkage from being transported and then they are turned out on grass at the University of Idaho Nancy M Cummings Research Extension and Education Center up by Salmon. They are weighed at turnout and then they are weighed monthly and they are wait again at the end of the contest which is in September, so they are there from the middle of May to the middle of September. They all belong to ICA, we rebrand them with our brand, they are donated and we sell them and a portion of the revenue goes back in cash and prizes to the participants and then the rest of it is used to sell ICA’s various monetary responsibilities like the Idaho Cattle Political Action Committee or our Cattle Action Legal Fund.
