The grills were hot and competition was fierce during the Steak Cookoff Association (SCA) “Hawgin on Lanier” competition in Cummings, Ga., on July 31. Certified Hereford Beef® along with its partner National Beef Packing sponsored the event.
SCA is an organization that holds steak cooking competitions all over the U.S. and in countries across the globe. In 2021, SCA will have events in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and several other European countries. SCA will sponsor the World Championship competition in Fort Worth, Texas, in March 2021. This event will feature regional winners from around the country and world to compete for the champion title.
There to help facilitate and judge the competitors was Ty Ragsdale, Certified Hereford Beef brand manager, and Terry Thornton, National Beef field marketing manager.
Certified Hereford Beef premium ribeyes were the featured cut for over 75 competitors to work with. Ragsdale reports that many contestants boasted how well marbled and rich in flavor the CHB ribeyes were. “Certified Hereford Beef looks forward to participating in more events like this one to show more people across the country the high-quality product produced by our Hereford breeders,” Ragsdale says.
