Free event icon Annual event icon

September 28
Peeples Valley

Yavapai Cattle Growers’ Association’s Annual Calf Sale & BBQ and Maughan Ranches Quarterhorse Sale—a delicious and historic tradition for 81 years! Portion of all proceeds to benefit Yarnell residents in the wake of the Yarnell Hill Fire in June.

September 28th, 2013 – The Yavapai Cattle Grower’s Association will hold their Annual Calf Sale & BBQ for the 81st year. The event began in 1932 as a way to raise money for the national organization—today known as The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association—which was, at the time, in danger of financial collapse. We are thrilled and honored to have This Week in Agribusiness host Orion Samuelson as well as many local, county, state, and national elected officials and candidates in attendance to celebrate our 81st year. A portion of all proceeds made through this event will be given to the residents of Yarnell to help with efforts to rebuild in the wake of the Yarnell Hill Fire in June. Proceeds will be donated in the Yarnell account through National Bank in Wickenburg.

Activities begin with the Maughan Ranches Quarterhorse sale at 8:00 a.m. A 4-H and FFA Livestock Judging Clinic will be provided by the University of Arizona Livestock Judging Team. Sign-ups for the clinic are at 8:00 a.m. Western art, crafts, and jewelry as well as industry information booths will open at 9:00 a.m. Arizona Game & Fish in cooperation with Adobe Mountain Wildlife Rehab Center is providing a sport shooting trailer and an Arizona Wildlife Display. In addition there will be mutton busting (for kids 60 pounds and under, weigh-in begins at 10:00 a.m.), a KVRD radio live remote with “Mark in the Morning”, the historic Yavapai Cowbelles Scholarship Brand Quilt drawing and of course the best BBQ BEEF in the state!

Take a scenic drive to beautiful Peeples Valley, bring a chair or blanket, spend the day at a historic ranch, meet a real cowboy, enjoy the best BBQ BEEF around, and get to know your local, county, and state politicians and candidates. We’ll see you at the Calf Sale! From Phoenix take US 60 to Wickenburg, then take Highway 89 30 miles to Maughan Ranch West Fork (formerly the Hays Ranch). From Prescott take Highway 89 30 miles to Peeples Valley and Maughan Ranch West Fork, look for the white fencing and banners—you can’t miss it! Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
