Learning can be fun … if you have a cow
Last summer, I applied to the Minnesota Youth Beef Experience Program (MYBEP) to win a free, registered beef heifer. The MYBEP program is open to youth ages 12-16 who demonstrate financial need and a commitment to agriculture. Through the program, I won the South Devon heifer – Bobbi Lane. Since I received Bobbi Lane at the Minnesota Beef Expo last October I have enjoyed fulfilling my required responsibilities: taking care of her, writing quarterly progress reports and scrapbooking.
