Bred Heifer Project
4-H members interested in livestock breeding, especially beef, should consider the Elbert Douglas County Livestock Association (EDCLA) Bred Heifer Project. This is a great project to introduce our youth to the beef industry while starting a beef herd of their own. It is an informative project that is quite different from the other 4-H projects for beef.
The annual catch-a-calf contest is held during the Elbert County Fair in August. Participants compete to catch a calf. If successful they get the opportunity to raise a calf to show at the following year's Elbert County Fair.
