Six Tennessee students were awarded the Youth Beef Heifer Initiative Scholarship, sponsored by the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association and Farm Credit Mid-America.

They received this award at the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association Youth Awards Banquet, Saturday, January 21st, 2023, in Murfreesboro.

The Heifer Initiative focuses on cost-sharing of beef cattle for youth. First place winners of each age division are awarded $2,000 and belt buckle sponsored by the University of Tennessee Animal Science, and the second-place winners are awarded $1,000.

Hannah-Jane Davis of Giles County received first place in the Junior High Division and Ethan Giles of Anderson County placed second.

This scholarship money is to be put towards the purchase of a beef heifer of their choice from a Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association member within one year of receiving the funds.
