LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) Cook-off was held during the 2019 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Louisville, KY, from July 14-20 at the Kentucky Expo Center.
Nebraska juniors won second place in the intermediate steak division. Team members were Addison Cotton, York; Kacey Dethlefs, Ravenna; Nicole Nichols, Chambers; Rachel Smith and Wyatt Smith, both of Osceola; and Tavin Uden, Franklin.
They prepared “Forever on Your Plate, CAB® Angus Steak Bites.” The American Angus Auxiliary sponsored the event.
In 1983 in Des Moines, Iowa, the first Cook-off was organized to encourage Angus juniors to practice their beef education skills while using ground beef. Later in 1988, the contest gained the support of Certified Angus Beef ®, and ever since, they have provided product to contestants.
