The program is an outgrowth of a longstanding tradition of 'terminal' junior steer shows in Carter County, Oklahoma, dating back to 1968. In 1988, the Noble Foundation took over sponsorship of the county contest from an informal group called the Carter County Beef Eaters Association. The contest has existed in its current, expanded format since 1996. After the county junior livestock shows, steers entered in the NFJBEP are delivered to Ardmore and commingled for two days before being transported and harvested. Carcass measurements are taken and ranked by professional meat scientists.Oklahoma residents of Carter, Garvin, Jefferson, Johnston, Love, Marshall, Murray and Stephens counties are eligible to participate in the program.
