2023 Supreme Beef Female Program

The NYBPA Supreme Beef Female Program started in 2010 and works to highlight the Supreme Beef Female from each county fair across New York during the current show season. Each winning county fair Supreme Beef Female, whether it is a cow/calf pair or a heifer, will receive a banner and a vest sponsored by American Crop Insurance and “In Memory of Warren Bippert Jr & Mike Kelley.” The county fair winners are then invited to the Supreme Show on Beef Day, Tuesday, August 29th, at the NYS Fair in Syracuse. This show at NYS Fair is sponsored by Purina. The Supreme Cow/Calf and Supreme Heifer each get $1000 and Reserve, $500. In order to be eligible to show at the Supreme Show, beef females need to have won a New York county fair, thus representing that county fair (also includes the NYJBPA Preview Show). Please see the complete program rules and guidelines below.
