INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Fairgrounds hosted the 32nd annual Hoosier Beef Congress during the first weekend in December.
“The 32nd Hoosier Beef Congress is going really smooth, and we have close to 1,200 head of cattle,” said Joe Moore, who is the executive vice president for the Indiana Beef Cattle Association.
Moore added that the number of cattle registered for this year’s event is the same as last year.
“The show will be broadcast by Walton Web so that grandma and grandpa in Florida can watch their grandchildren live on the internet,” said Moore, adding that the show webcast will be archived and can be accessed through http://hoosierbeefcongress.com.
Moore said that sometimes live streams can look grainy, but the broadcast of the youth exhibiting their cattle is clear and looks like one is watching television.
“From a competition standpoint, Hoosier Beef Congress is one of the best shows in the state all year long,” he said.
Moore said individuals who think they have good animals can bring them to Hoosier Beef Congress to see where they stand against competition.
“Hoosier Beef Congress is a good family event and we try to make it as family friendly as possible,” he said.
The Black Hereford breed is a new addition to the show’s lineup.
Moore said those individuals who show Black Herefords are a very engaged group.
“They are excited to be at the Hoosier Beef Congress, and they made sure to have a good showing,” he said.
