The Alabama Junior/Senior High Beef Cook-Off was started in 1961 by the Alabama CowBelles, known today as the Alabama Cattlewomen’s Association. What began as a cooking contest, sparked enough interest in high school home economics students and teachers that the CowBelles began holding competitions in each county with the winner moving on to compete in a State Beef Cook-Off. Today, each year there are both Junior and Senior High competitions held each year.
