Pendleton County Highlights

Pendleton, Tucker and Randolph counties’ beef producers marketed 436 head of calves through the West Virginia Assurance Sale at a $71/head advantage over calves sold in the special graded sale. This sale generated more than $430,000 with a total advantage of $30,000 returned to producers for their efforts.
42 producers reduced the use of commercial-purchased fertilizer with a savings in excess of $175,000 over the past five years.
Active Pathways were added to all elementary schools in the county.
