Top Hand Stockmanship & Stewardship Contest

 

 

Are you one of the top hands in Georgia's cattle industry?

 

The Top Hand Stockmanship and Stewardship Program is a series of cattle handling contests designed to educate and equip Georgia’s youth with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be successful advocates and/or employees for the beef industry. The UGA Beef Team and the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association teamed up with cattle producers and UGA Research/Teaching herds across Georgia to provide three Regional Contests in Athens, Carrolton and Alapaha for the chance to compete for the state title.

This contest is now open to 8th-12th grade students in Georgia! Each team will consist of three members. Teams must be entered on an official entry form and provide a completed permission form, which will include each team member's parent's signature indicating their permission for their child to participate.
