The Charolais Association of Texas has a program that donates Charolais calves to individuals who've never owned a registered Charolais, for the purpose of showing as a project. Applications are being accepted and the deadline has been extended to December 21, 2009. The link to the program and application is http://www.charolaisassociation.com/odbutler.html. We ask that you relay this information to your youth and encourage them to complete the application if they qualify. Remember, all applications must be postmarked by December 21, 2009.
