The grades are in.

Local 4-H participants have raised and sold their steers, and local freezers are bursting with their efforts. But before the clubs can turn the page on this year's projects, their beef was graded and ranked, before being cut and wrapped for delivery.

Carcasses were placed according to the ranking they would have been given on a rail grade basis. Although individual tastes vary, and everyone has their own preference in terms of marbling level, Prime beef in yields 1 to 3 fetch the highest price. There were no carcasses with the extreme fat coverings seen in yields 4 and 5, according to 4-H organizers.

Within those categories, the carcasses were further ranked based on the level of marbleing on the cut surface of the loin.

All of the carcasses were of good quality and yield; even the lowest ranked carcass is a well muscled carcass with good fat covering, but less marbling required for the AA designation,” according to the grading report.

Two of the 4-H steers earned the rank of Prime. Brayden Krieger earned the top ranking of the group, with Prime 2 beef. Caleb Peters came in a close second with a Prime 3 rating. Only two to three per cent of beef produced in Canada earns the Prime designation, according to the Beef Cattle Research Council. The remainder of participants earned an A to AAA rating, which is considered top performing. Ratings B through E are typically used in further production and some fast food establishments.
