This year, the Hidalgo County Cattlegrowers' (HCCGA) started a donation fund to help the local 4-H and FFA members showing CountyBred & Fed cattle at the Hidalgo County Fair, Using only donations from the HCCGA, its members, and generous local businesses and individuals, over $5,000 was.raised this year alone! The funds were split four ways, The first three portions were awarded to the I st, 2rid. and 3rd place winners of the show, The last. portion of the funds will be used to start the fund for next year's contestants. t The best part was that the money was handed to the winner the day of the sale, rather than weeks later; and if their animal didn't qualify for the next day's Fairl;ale, they were still able to take home an award for their many hours of hard work The HCCGA hopes to be able to reach out even more next year an laise even more money to help our youth, We'd continue to stron them to show an animal that has come from our neighbors' and ranches; this will save them money from the start, and potentiallyiiiteward them much more at fair time, thanks to this nev, ,:,, Anyone who would like to help promote local beef and help our pleas fel fre to contact one of our County Bred members or ask any HCCGA member for more information .... Our hats are off to the folks who helped us make the first year of thisa great success,,,thanks ! ! !
