Crawford County Carcass Show

The Crawford County Carcass Show will take place July 26 at 7 p.m. at Link’s Country Meats located at 7252 Leesville Rd., Crestline.

Ohio State’s Meat Science Program will evaluate hog, sheep, goat, and steer carcasses from Junior Fair exhibitors, including all champions, and local grower entries. Guests will learn how meat is processed and inspected, what makes a quality meat product as well as meat grading factors: yield grade, back fat, measuring the ribeye and marbling. The event is free and open to the public, and Mark’s Homemade Ice Cream will be served.

Cash prizes awarded for the top place carcasses in each species are sponsored by Crawford County Farm Bureau, Crawford County Cattlemen’s Association and Link’s Country Meats.

To enter the carcass show, contact Link’s County Meats at 419-683-2195. Entries are limited to one entry per species per person and reserved on a first come, first served basis. Species champions are automatically entered. Reservations for processing are due by July 15.

Link’s Country Meats, a fifth generation meat market, is a state inspected, custom and retail meat market. All of the meat products are made fresh onsite.

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
