WHR inventory assessments must be completed and paid in full prior to registering calves born in the current assessment period, (i.e. 2019 assessment on a dam must be completed and paid in order to register her calf born in 2019.) 2. Included with each assessment is the registration of a calf born to the dam in the year she was assessed (if calf is registered prior to one year of age) and a free transfer of said calf (if recorded within 60 days from the date of the sale.) (i.e. cost to register a calf born in 2019 to an assessed 2019 dam will be $0, if calf is registered within 12 months) 2019 ASSESSMENT FEE SCHEDULE: March 1 - December 31, 2019 $25 *Calves born in previous year(s) to unassessed dams will incur additional fees as described below

The Family Friendly Breed

T

he National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference Report is included in this issue of the Shorthorn Country. This year’s event was what I believe to be a record breaker, as the breed descended upon Lebanon, Tennessee. Over 600 head were exhibited by more than 400 exhibitors – an over 100head increase from last year. Contests and educational area activities had record breaking numbers. Entries for the event was extra high, resulting in over 200 temporary stalls added to handle the influx of young Shorthorn enthusiasts and their families. The comradery and bonding relationships of the youth was witnessed by all who attended. I can’t remember a time when this event was enjoyed more by the young people exhibiting. There was a festive atmosphere during the tailgate party on Thursday when state food tents opened down the drive by the barn and show ring; which was followed by the Confederate Railroad concert. We had rain and more rain during the week including a storm threat that shortened the awards ceremony. Like all events of this size, there were a few hick ups but most everyone was happy interacting with families and friends. Why is this event is so important to the breed? The term Family Friendly Breed is a derivative of the National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference. Many who come for the first time become annual attendees and Shorthorn enthusiasts; giving credit to the people in this breed whom help create a familyfriendly atmosphere. This welcoming of

Montie D. asa executive Soules secretary/CEO

newcomers is very important to breed growth. I encourage you to attend if you haven’t already. This cattle event is a lot more than just a show. The number of exhibitors who participate and excel in contest areas is quite impressive. The senior speech winner, Abigayle Polluck from TN, presented her speech during the awards ceremony. Her message was very inspiring; there is a reprint of it in this issue of the magazine on page 48. The Quiz Bowl winners squared off on stage at the awards ceremony; everyone saw the intelligence of our youth in action. All these contests help build character in the youth of our breed. From promotional poster, photography, digitally enhanced photography, graphic design, arts & crafts to beef cook-off, livestock judging, team fitting, team sales, cattleman’s written quiz, quiz bowl and of course prepared and extemporaneous speech, these activities enriched the event. Our breed has always been very active as exhibitors participating in these categories. This year there were 1,963 participants including the showmanship contest and 1,710 who participated in the combined contests without showmanship. This illustrates just what a family affair the Jr. National is - more than a cattle show as our youth build their futures. Lebanon, TN was a little different venue; it had a more county fair flavor and not the state fair look. It was the people who made the event. The excitement of families seeing each other and working as teams or states to achieve success in many ways. Reuniting and making new friendships from around the country occurs during this week each

year. In Tennessee we saw many new and first-time exhibitors. I want to personally thank all the volunteers, staff members, interns and Junior Board members for all their hard work and planning that went into making this event a success. The Jr. National is totally funded by donations and sponsorships. This financial support is imperative to continue to put on this event. Again, thank you to all who contributed to this event. Why is this event is so important to the breed? First, 61% of the attendees at our 2015 Impact Conference were past Junior ASA Members. They truly are our future. Many of our youth may move on to different professions, but over time we see them come back to the Shorthorn breed to expose their own children to a familyfriendly group of breeders. There are a number of families that become strong Shorthorn breeders who originated in the junior program. Next year’s National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference is in Abilene, TX, during the last week of June. It is at a new facility with an air-conditioned coliseum due to be completed in April, 2020. I hope to see you all there and encourage you to attend for the experience. Please continue to help support this cause as it is one of, if not the most, important event of the breed each year. Your donations and sponsorships are crucial to ensure the continued success of the program that has created a Family Friendly Breed! =

Summer Review and Preview With a good portion of the summer behind us, it’s a good time to take a look at one of my highlight events of the summer schedule, as well as look ahead to the big Shorthorn event we have planned to close out the summer before we head into sale season. Beef Improvement Federation Conference While most of the staff was getting settled in to Lebanon, TN for the National Junior Shorthorn Show, I was making my way to Brookings, SD for my favorite meeting of the year: the annual Beef Improvement Federation Conference. Hosted this year by South Dakota State University, this is one of the most unique meetings of the year, bringing seedstock and commercial ranchers, academic representatives, breed association staff and other industry leaders together to learn and discuss ways to breed better beef cattle. The conference always kicks off with the Young Producer Seminar, a program aimed at the crowd of attendees ages 40 and under. Various topics were covered, from financials to the need for innovation in our operations. Tom Field from the University of Nebraska discussed that innovation arises from two factors: a “pain point” in our operation, and an unhappy customer. Being able to use those things to make way for a better plan of attack will help keep ranchers in business a long time. Wednesday’s general session highlighted emerging genetic and reproductive technologies that can hopefully be useful and affordable for producers in the future. Perhaps the highlight of the event was the panel of elite commercial cattle producers from across the country taking questions and “talking cows”. Learning how each of these herds successfully operates

was fascinating. Wednesday afternoon provided opportunities for breakout sessions on topics from new EPDs to adaptability to genomics. You would have to work hard to not find something interesting on the agenda that afternoon. The Thursday morning slate covered genetic evaluations, as well as research in the Australian beef industry and the American swine industry. An outside perspective is always intriguing and gives the opportunity to take away something useful for the American beef cattle business. Thursday afternoon breakouts focused on selection index technology in both the cattle and hog sectors, as well as end-product technology (carcass and ultrasound). The most valuable takeaway from BIF every year is the “hallway talk” and the things you can learn visiting with other attendees outside the meeting room. With so many diverse industry professionals and brilliant minds in one place, if you leave the halls of the conference center without learning anything, you only have yourself to blame. If you have never been to BIF, I would encourage you to add it to your June calendar. The 2020 Conference will be June 9-12 in Orlando, Florida. While that is a good distance from most Shorthorn breeders, rumor has it that the 2021 event will be held in the heart of Shorthorn country. Upcoming National Sire Test Field Day At the end of August, there will be a time for education and Shorthorn fellowship as we hold the second National Sire Test Field Day on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign. The program will be Saturday August 24, starting at 9am. After the success of last year’s event, we knew we wanted to host

National Shorthorn Field Day Saturday, August 24, 2019

another field day and try to make it better than the 2018 edition! Once again, Dr. Dan Shike from the Department of Animal Science will be speaking on the NST program and how the current calf crop is progressing. We are fortunate to have Cody Sankey joining us this year as a speaker. Cody is the Sire Procurement Manage for GENEX Beef, and has family ties to the Shorthorn breed. His expertise in seedstock production and bull selection will be worth hearing. I will be presenting some NST data and what it means to the Shorthorn breed. To wrap up the morning program, we want to hear from you, the Shorthorn breeder! We will be doing a question and answer session about performance testing and its value to your operation. It will be fun to be the one asking questions of the audience for once instead of fielding the questions coming my way! After we enjoy lunch catered by the U of I Meat Science Club, we will take a trip to the Beef Farm where the 2018 NST calf crop will be on feed in the GrowSafe yard. Complete performance data will be available on the cattle, so you can compare sire groups and evaluate for yourself how things are progressing in the NST. If you would like to join us for the Field Day, please contact me at matt@ shorthorn.org. We want to make sure we’ve got enough food for everyone! I’m looking forward to having a full house on campus for another successful NST Field Day. Whether it’s your state fair or a fall sale, I wish you the best of luck heading into one of the best times of year to be involved in the purebred cattle business. There will be plenty of opportunities to showcase the value of high-quality Shorthorn cattle! =

2019 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference by Kane Aegerter

As we wrap up another fun filled Junior Nationals, I cannot help but reflect on the incredible time we had. With numerous states and countries represented, it was a week that I will look back on as one to remember. From team fitting to the speech contest, from Shorthorns to ShorthornPlus we had amazing participation, and not to mention some amazing competition. This one will go down in our record books as one of the most attended Junior Nationals we have ever had the privilege to put on and be a part of. A special thank you to all the volunteers and staff who helped put on this event. Being on the junior board these past two years have brought nothing but new

18

friendships and new memories. This industry and this breed have given me and everyone else the chance to grow as a person inside and outside of the show ring. Also teaching us valuable skills of leadership, responsibility, and communication that the juniors will be able to use throughout their entire life. Serving on this board as director and now as president is an incredible opportunity. The junior board that surrounds me is second to none, as far as being hard working and knowledgeable. We all look forward to seeing you and being able to visit with you all during the fall at our Shorthorn National Shows. Not forgetting to mention how excited we are for the upcoming 2020

Junior Nationals in Abilene, Texas. All the juniors and families make this breed worthwhile to myself and many others. We look forward to seeing everyone at shows and sales for many years to come! =

Arts & Crafts by Macy Bakenhus

The Arts & Crafts contest is very competitive no matter what age division and the crafts continue to get better and better every year. The judges had to make tough decisions on selecting the Top 5 placings. It is tough to create crafts that have Shorthorns involved and then have them travel the many miles to NJSS all while making sure they still look just as great on arrival. If selected into the Top 5, the juniors have the option to donate their crafts to the AJSA Jr. Board’s future fundraisers to help raise money for Jr. Nationals each year. This small donation helps us to be able to keep making Junior Nationals amazing each year. Prospector I: 1. Sam Teeple, Tenn. 2. Maggie Shoufler, Ind.

Sock Drive by Wyatt Minihan

The Little Pantry That Could picking up the donated socks.

For the past several years, the AJSA has hosted a ‘Sock Drive’ and partnered with organizations from across the nation to provide socks for those in need. This year, the ASJA partnered with The Little Pantry that Could; which is located in Nashville, Tennessee. The Little Pantry That Could was founded in 2010 as a small food pantry serving a lower income area in West Nashville. It quickly grew

from serving around a dozen local guests to over 200, from as far as 50 miles away, each Saturday. They also have become an outreach center, specially serving individuals living outside. Currently, they assist around 75 guests each week. This year the AJSA reached a new all-time high number of 4,100 pairs of socks donated by 29 states. This number was over two times the number of socks

donated at the 2018 NJSS. To figure out the state with the most donated, the socks are sorted into states and then divided by the number of exhibitors to figure out the percentage per exhibitor. This year the winning state was Mississippi with 358 pairs per exhibitor. Although Mississippi had the most per exhibitor, Alabama brought the most pairs of socks which was almost 1,000. = shorthorn country = august 2019

Senior Prepared Speech Winner - Abigayle Pollock New this year, the Champion Senior in the Prepared Speech Contest, presented their speech during the awards banquet Friday night. Below is a copy of Abigayle Pollock’s winning speech. All Natural, Non-GMO, 100% Organic, Gluten-Free, Certified Hereford Beef, Certified Angus Beef..... Every time you go to the grocery store, you see more than one of these labels on food products at least once. Used as a marketing tool, these labels play a key role into consumer decision making, regardless of how educated the consumer may or may not be on what the label stands for. I can only imagine what they must be thinking as they stare at the shelves. “If it’s Non-GMO, that must mean it’s better for me.” “If its organic, it must be healthier for me, right?” “Oh, that’s Angus beef…. that means its better quality” Now more than ever, consumers are becoming more and more concerned with how their food is produced. These labels provide the insurance and trust consumers are so desperately seeking each time they stare at the shelves. As a Shorthorn producer myself, I am more than confident in the quality and consistency of beef that is put on my table. However, if the common consumer saw the words “Shorthorn Beef ”, on a package of t-bone steaks, would they also be confident in the quality of beef they are about to enjoy? Would they even know what a Shorthorn is? Regardless of the product you are trying to sell, it all starts with marketing. If a consumer doesn’t know what a Shorthorn is, or doesn’t associate quality with the word, can we really blame them for choosing not to buy it? As a breed, it’s up to us to develop a relationship with our consumers in order to successfully promote our product. Creating a “brand” for Shorthorn beef should be a priority moving forward, and it all starts with education. As I stated earlier, consumers are becoming more interested in where their food comes from. Therefore, it only makes sense that we provide them that information! Transparency is key when marketing any agricultural product, especially beef. Consumers want to see and learn about the farm that produced their food. By developing informational graphics, video, and other promotional designs that showcase the hard work and dedication that goes into shorthorn beef, consumers will be able to associate with and become more comfortable purchasing the product. As I’m sure all 48

shorthorn country = august 2019

of us in this room know, the Shorthorn breed is known for its high degree of marbling. In fact, shorthorns ranked among the top breeds for the Marbling and Fat EPDs according to the US Meat Animal Research Center’s cross EPD adjustments. Therefore, it’s time we capitalize on these positive attributes in order to develop a presence at the meat counter. Creating a label for Shorthorn beef would allow consumers to quickly identify, and hopefully purchase our product. Cattle producers across the globe are responsible for providing a safe, wholesome product for consumers to enjoy. If consumers are ready and willing to buy Shorthorn beef, it is up to us to provide the quality and consistency they are looking for. Therefore, if a “brand” for Shorthorn beef were to be created, it would be essential to develop certain carcass requirements that must be met before it can be marketed as Shorthorn beef. This would ensure that the beef does in fact have Shorthorn influence and has met the carcass qualifications for a high quality product. Creating specific requirements would allow us to hold ourselves accountable for the beef we produce as well as assure the consumer that they are in fact purchasing a wholesome, highly valued product. Beyond that, a label for Shorthorn beef could be utilized as an incentive for Shorthorn producers to continually improve the carcass performance of their herd. The American consumer is the driving force of the beef industry. As a breed, we need to not only take the time to understand the consumer’s wants and needs, but strive to meet and exceed those needs and expectations. In my personal opinion, there’s nothing like biting into a juicy Shorthorn steak. But, it would be even better if the average joe walking into the grocery store believed the same thing. As a Shorthorn community, it’s our job to work to promote our product. The Shorthorn breed is rooted in quality and rich in tradition, and it’s time for the consumer to know it too! Branding and promoting Shorthorn beef is not only essential for securing the future of the breed, but it also works to uphold our promise to consumers- to provide a safe, wholesome, and healthy product for everyone to enjoy. Thank you. =

State Herdsmanship

by Allison Dragstrem Cleanliness and presentation is key for the State Herdsmanship contest. The State Herdsmanship contest is a combination of multiple things to see what state association can put together the best stalls, and how well each state keeps their area clean and well-presented throughout the week. Most states hang curtains, have matching stall cards, state signs at the ends of their aisles, or even a display to show off their juniors and all their hard work and dedication. It is a whole state effort to make sure alley ways are swept and stall beds are kept nice and presentable. All of our juniors take a lot of pride

in their work! Congratulations to all of the states and juniors on a job well done! Your hard work didn’t go unnoticed. States with 20 head and under: 1. Colorado 2. Pennsylvania 3. Canada 4. Kansas 5. Maryland States with 21 head and up: 1. Iowa 2. Ohio 3. Indiana 4. Missouri 5. Minnesota

Interns Views on NJSS As we unpack and recover from the busy and fun week in Lebanon, Tennessee, the interns wanted to give our views on NJSS.

Wyatt Attending Shorthorn Junior Nationals was a different experience for myself in many ways. It was rewarding to see all the hard work come together. This great week of fun made memories for the youth and their families. Although, I am used to attending Hereford Junior Nationals, the dedication and passion the youth have for the Shorthorn breed is similar and was rewarding to encounter. I was able to spend most of my time capturing photos of the exhibitors and their animals. I know the time and dedication it takes and it’s fulfilling to be able to capture their success through a lens. Be sure to check out the ASA Facebook page for all the photos I captured at the 2019 NJSS in Lebanon, Tennessee. Faith Wow! Junior Nationals is done and it’s hard to believe that it is already over. I had such a great time getting to meet

the juniors and parents involved with the Shorthorn association. Overall, this was one of my favorite shows to attend and work as an intern. I had fun helping wherever I was needed and hope the juniors had a blast at the 2019 NJSS in Tennessee. Congratulations to everyone who participated in Lebanon, I wish you luck for the upcoming show season. Get out there and show off the great breed of Shorthorns! Wade NJSS was a different experience for me, as I grew up going to Hereford Junior Nationals. As the youth activities intern, I had the opportunity to prepare all the contests, scripts, organize awards and help with many other tasks. Until you are actually in those shoes, you never realize all the work behind the scenes to make a junior national successful. I have a newfound respect for all those hard-working individuals who help make a show happen without any major issues. I really enjoyed all the task my internship gave this year. While in Lebanon, Tennessee I was able to match a name to a face at the end of the week and

look forward to seeing those familiar face at other shows. The Shorthorn breed, as a whole, welcomed us with smiling faces and great personalities. Overall, the NJSS was an awesome experience and, although I may be a Hereford kid, look out for me at future Shorthorn Junior Nationals. =

Pick Throw by Wade Minihan

Every year, Junior Mentors and Apprentices team up to sell an item as a fundraiser to raise money for the following Junior Nationals. The AJSA and Sullivan Supply graciously donates a chute for a lucky individual to win. This year, Junior Mentors and Apprentices sold guitar picks to raise money towards the 2020 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference. Friday, after the show, all individuals who bought guitar picks battled it out

for their chance to join the band and win a Sullivan Supply Chute valued at over $800 dollars. Those individuals who bought guitar picks, stood behind a line and tried their best to toss their picks into a water bucket. Ties were broken by a re-toss with those who’s picks made it in the bucket the first round. From the second round, this year’s skilled winner was Rylan Jester from Mooreland, Indiana. Congratulations and enjoy your chute!

We hope everyone is ready to participate in this eventful fundraiser next year; it won’t be guitar picks being thrown. Item is to-be-determined based on the 2020 Juniot National theme! =

Team Sales by Kane Aegerter

Communication is always an important skill to have and our kids in the Team Sales contest put that to the test. They attempt to sell their calf to judges of the industry, an agriculture product or use a scenario, all while learning valuable traits they will use in everyday life. The judges asked many questions to challenge the exhibitor’s knowledge of their product and preparation for the task at hand. It is no doubt that we will need salesmen and women in the future, and this contest brought out the best. The results go as followed: Prospector I: 1. Asa & Vivian Lou Thompson, Ala. 2.

This year Team Fitting was bright and early at 8:00 a.m. The competitors were able to enjoy a cool morning competing with their teams. This year, the competition was very successful with few issues and less heat! I found out an interesting fact while talking with our judges. They told me that at some point in time, each of the four judges had fit with each other over the years. I think

that the relationships they had from past experiences made it easier for them to be able to find teams that excelled in teamwork and fitting. Each group was judged by how well they work together and communicate during the competition on top of their fitting skills. Teams were given 30 minutes to fit their animals. The following groups placed in the Top 5:

Lassie Tea & Lassie 101 by Emily Fry

Lassie Tea Participants.

Country roads brought Shorthorn Lassie enthusiasts together in Lebanon, Tennessee, where we gathered for the annual Lassie Tea on the morning of June 20th. Young lassies may have had to endure busy schedules, down pouring rains and high humidity throughout the week, but in true Shorthorn Lassie spirit, nothing would stop these future Lassies from a fun-filled Lassie Tea! More than 20 young girls representing several different states were in attendance, where each girl received a sash to decorate and a tiara, along with their very own teacup and saucer to take home with them. We also provided the opportunity for those in attendance to help assemble

Faye and I were grateful for all the State Queens and Princesses that attended, as well. It was great to see so many young girls, parents, and supporters make the Lassie Tea a success this year. After the Lassie Tea, we changed our tune and held the Lassie 101. This event allows State Queens and Princesses, along with other young ladies the opportunity to interact with members of the National Shorthorn Lassie

Association, while setting the stage for their own future Shorthorn Lassie tour. Faye and I were able to share some of our own experiences on the responsibilities of a Lassie Queen from walking in classes to handing out awards and discussed the costume, as well as tips on hair, makeup and general show ring advice when serving as a Lassie. Lassie 101 also helps build relationships among the queens and princesses, along with helping to answer questions regarding the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen Contest, which I highly recommend every queen to participate in; it’s an awesome experience they won’t regret! I consider it a great honor to serve as the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen and getting to witness the excitement and interest from the Lassie 101 participants definitely highlighted the talented future of our organization. I would especially like to thank the Minnesota Lassie Association for helping sponsor the Lassie Tea and Lassie 101 events, as well as my Mom for everything she did to help me with this. In addition, thank you to all of the individuals in attendance, those that helped set up, clean up, and everyone that made this a great experience for these young girls and a positive tradition for our breed. =

Senior Showmanship Winners.

Hosted on Wednesday morning was one of the hardest competitions of the week; the Sullivan Supply Showmanship contest. Showmanship is the jack of all trades competition. Members are judged on their ability to prepare and present their animal while showcasing a depth of knowledge of the beef industry and the Shorthorn breed. With Showmanship, the work done by members at home is on full display. Again this year, all eyes were on the top 10 senior individuals on Wednesday night. Everyone gathered around to watch the fitting portion that was added as part of a way to help sort out the top 10 individuals.

Quiz Bowl by Kendall Nelson

Junior Nationals came and went, but some of the fun memories will last forever. Tennessee felt like a tropical rainforest to some, but it was great to see a different part of the country. Personally, I enjoyed traveling to Lebanon, even if it meant that I had to smash a deer to get there! I know everyone looks forward to heading to Texas, but before we look to the future we have to recognize the results of the contests that happened recently. The quiz bowl was a very well attended event with 27 teams participating. Each team consists of one senior, one intermediate and two prospectors. These 27 teams were set up in a random bracket to compete head to head against each other. It was a fun time listening to tossups and seeing kids demonstrate their

State Cook-Off by Gabriella Leone

For a new contest that is only the second year in the making, the state cook-off tailgate party was a huge hit this year at Junior Nationals. More than eight states participated and helped to make this year’s Junior National a great one. Both junior members and their families enjoyed the tasty snacks and fun games provided by the different states. The state cook-off has proved to be a relaxing and social break for everyone attending the Shorthorn Junior Nationals. Most of the states that competed in the contest featured food items and entertainment that were unique to their state. I personally was impressed by the excellent competition and it was so much fun to

travel the United States and get a taste of all the different cuisines in just an hour and a half. After votes were cast by junior exhibitors in Lebanon, Ohio was selected as the champion with their Shorthorn beef chili cheese dogs. As the board member in charge of state cook-off contest, I found it appropriate for junior board to host one of the yard games on Thursday afternoon during the allotted time. The 50/50 Cornhole Tournament was a complete success with 24 teams competing and the winning team receiving $240 as their half of the winnings. Next year I hope to make the Cornhole Tournament even better yet in Abilene, Texas! See y’all there!

Cattleman’s Written Test by Lexi Wetzel

Cattleman’s Written Test Winners.

Talk about popular demand; this year no one wanted to miss out on proving all the knowledge they had in the Cattleman’s Written Test. This was the second year offering the test that asked questions about shorthorns and their history along with general beef cattle questions. There were a total of 122 participants from all age divisions that

competed in the contest. To say that we have extremely smart cookies in this association would be an understatement. There were even some kids that walked away without a check mark on their test. If you ask me that is quite impressive. Keep up the studying for the quiz in Abilene, Texas next year!

by Shelby Rogers and Ann Wilson

The National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference is the highlight of the summer for many AJSA youth and their families. The culmination of hard work and sweat in the barn while preparing for this show keeps the youth excited about the Shorthorn breed. “Youth are the backbone and future of the breed,” said Ann Wilson, Shorthorn breeder and passionate youth supporter. “If we don’t keep the kids interested, then the breed will never grow.” “If we don’t To help the NJSS keep the kids continue to grow, interested, then it should be a very special event held in the breed will a first-class facility never grow.” with great activities, awards, entertainment, contests, and learning experiences for all juniors. While at the NJSS, youth can participate in public speaking, fitting, judging, quiz bowl, and more to help build leadership and communication skills. Showing cattle builds work ethic, responsibility and character. When these kids apply for college and/or jobs in the future, the college admissions staff and employers will be searching for good

candidates with those work ethics and communication skills that our youth have been able to develop from their experiences at NJSS. The youth make new friends at NJSS, while also building networking skills with professionals in the agricultural industry. These life skills are certain to reap benefits while they search for their future careers. The NJSS is a great event for youth and families that takes a tremendous amount of money to stage. Each year the AJSA hosts multiple fundraisers to make the NJSS possible. The first event is the Leading a Legacy fundraiser held at Sullivan Farms in Dunlap, Iowa. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Foundation Heifer and live auction items goes to the NJSS. Without these funds, there would be no show. Our junior national show will always need donations and sponsorships to keep it going each and every year. It is a great opportunity to showcase our breed and educate our youth. We would like to thank all of those sponsors and donors that believe in our youth and their importance to the future of our breed. The National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference

wouldn’t be possible without your continued support. This year, we had a record number of youth and cattle, and we hope to see that growth continue each

Strumming a Shorthorn Tune The exhibitors of the AJSA had a great time Strumming a Shorthorn Tune in Lebanon, Tennessee, for the 2019 National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference with a record year for entries exhibited and exhibitors in attendance! After a year of planning with the Tennessee Shorthorn Association, AJSA junior board and ASA staff, it was exciting to see it all come together. From all the contests to Confederate Railroad concert and cattle shows to water fights, it was easy to see the fun that exhibitors had in Lebanon. Thank you to all the sponsors who donated throughout the year to help make the NJSS possible. The show is

completely funded by donations and sponsorships. We couldn’t have this amazing show without the support of these people! Thank you to the Tennessee Shorthorn Association for all your help in planning the NJSS this year. We truly appreciate all your help in making it possible. The contest judges, show ring plants, sponsors and more, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to the ASA staff and Shorthorn Country for everything you do. We are lucky to have such a great team that lends a hand wherever it is needed. ASA Events wouldn’t be possible without the ASA Staff and Shorthorn Country working together to get everything done.

Finally, thank you to the junior board. The past and current junior board work many hours throughout the year raising money and planning the NJSS to make sure it is the best experience possible for the youth. The junior board also works so hard the week of junior nationals to make sure contests run smoothly; that means they can’t always be with their animals. Thank you for being such wonderful leaders and roles models! It is hard to believe that I just completed my third junior national as the American Shorthorn Association youth activity director and have already started planning for 2020. We can’t wait to see you in Abilene, Texas, June 22-27. =
