On Sunday May 27, the village of Hussar hosted the 58th annual Hussar 4-H Beef Club Show and Sale.
The show and sale is the opportunity for young people to show off their agriculture skills in raising live stock.
These young people raise the steers from birth, feeding and maintaining their health until it's time for slaughter.
"Our kids have worked all year. We weighed in our calves on November 20th with a starting weight of roughly 630 pounds," said Sale Associate President Janet Yule. "These kids have raised these steers all the way up until now."
The 4-H event had 49 different cattlemen and women showing off their raised cattle. After the showing portion of the event came the buying portion, where the steers are auctioned off to the highest bidder. Following the sale, there was a roast beef dinner.
"It takes every one of our families (on the 4-H Club roster) to pull this together," she said. "From finding your buyers to setting up the arena, every one of our families pitches in and that's what makes this thing so great."
Last year's big buyers included Murray Chrysler Strathmore, Riverside Value Drugmart and Riverside Packers.
"I just can't thank everyone enough. This has come together very well," Yule finished. "It's a pretty cool community to be a part of."
The average sale price this year was $3.14 per pound.
Some of this years big buyers were Rod McLean, Western GM and Riverside Packers.
