On Nov. 7, 2018, the Copper Cowbelles distributed beef to local schools.
The Grant County Cattlegrowers' Association each year buys a steer at the Grant County Fair. The Copper Cowbelles pay for the processing by Wilcox Processing. The meat then gets donated to various schools for their home economics departments. Beef was donated to Cliff School, Silver Schools, Calvary Christian Academy, El Grito Headstart and Cobre Schools. This year, 2018, is the first year that Silver Schools got meat, because they just started a home economics department.
