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.
