It pays to feed MFA

Show season may be winding down for many 4-H and FFA members, but that means it’s time to start new livestock projects. As you make plans for next year’s events, keep MFA’s Project Premium Program in mind. Special incentives are available for using MFA feeds with your show animals. Bring home a win in the show ring, and you’ll win again with financial rewards from MFA’s Feed Division and your local MFA feed supplier.

This year’s project premiums are $50 for a market steer, beef heifer or dairy heifer and $20 for a market hog, market lamb, goat or bucket calf. To participate, animals must be fed a qualifying MFA feed product from weigh-in and it must be fed at recommended amounts throughout the project. The animal’s initial weight, ending weight and other information is verified by the group leader and should be submitted to your local MFA.

For project animals that place at the top of county rate-of-gain contests or state or national carcass-evaluation contests, there are additional financial rewards of up to $1,000. There is one project premium and one contest cash prize allowed per participant.

Horse projects can earn money for their non-profit club by saving proof of purchase seals from the bags of Easykeeper, Exceltra or Suprema Horse Feed.

MFA takes pride in rewarding our youth who work hard and achieve success. Those interested in the 4-H/FFA Livestock Project Premium Program must visit their local MFA to complete the enrollment and results forms.
