2021 Asotin County Fair Beef Carcass Contest

Beef carcass data was collected on 21 of the 2021 Asotin County Fair Steers that were processed at Heights Meats and 4 Frendz Meat Market in Clarkston; and C&L Lockers in Moscow (see link below).  The “Carcass of Merit Requirements” sheet helps explain the information contained in the Carcass Data Spreadsheet.  Thanks to the Asotin County Cattlemen’s Association for their continued support of this program.

This was again a very good group of steers; with 90% of the steers grading at least Low Choice, with an average Yield Grade of 3.19.

Six of the 21 steers qualified as WSU Steer of Merit winners.  In order to qualify for the “Steer-of-Merit” designation, steers must meet the following requirements:
