ABOUT THE BREEDING PROJECT AWARDS - 2022
The purpose of these awards is to encourage knowledge and interest in a continuing breeding project that will serve to become the foundation of a current or future breeding herd. It is the goal of the Marias River Livestock Association to encourage our youth to become the next generation of Livestock producers.

10th Consecutive year sponsoring the Beef Breeding Project Awards at the Marias Fair - Shelby, MT 2022
While confirmation, breeding capability and ability to handle the heifer is very important and will be part of the overall score for determining the award winner, the main component of the score is based on an interview. 4-Hers are interviewed on their knowledge of their animals and the goals they have for a continued breeding program on their current ranch operation or a future operation they may have in mind.
MRLA works hard to promote a healthy competitive and positive future for our livestock industry. Our youth are a very important component of that.
Grand Champions receive Montana Silversmith Belt Buckles and a cash award (cow/calf pair $150.00, Heifer $75.00). Reserve champions receive a certificate redeemable for a custom embroidered jacket.
