Established in 2007, the Heifer Initiative Award has helped youth across Kentucky purchase a heifer to begin or grow their own herd. In 2011, KCA was honored to gain Farm Credit Mid America as a partner to ensure the continuation of this program and grow the interest of the cattle industry for the many students who apply. One winner is selected in each age division based on their applications and responses to questions asked pertaining to the beef industry. Each of the three winners receive up to $2,000 to purchase a heifer from a Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association member.
