The Husker Beef Lab will be at the Butte Fire Hall on Tuesday, February 19 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm providing hands-on experiences for youth, their parents and the public.

The Beef Lab experience will teach science principles through a ruminant animal - its complexities and what makes the ruminant truly unique in the environment and ecosystem.

The goal of the Beef Lab experience is to teach Nebraskans the value of, and support the production of, high quality, protein beef animals.

It's story time at the O'Neill Public Library (601 East Douglas Street, O'Neill, NE)
