The Missouri Junior Hereford Association is widely recognized across the country for its strength in both numbers and enthusiasm. One of the greatest events of the year is the Junior National Hereford Expo where members across the state level travel across the country to meet up with other junior members across America and Canada. Missouri members enjoy camaraderie among each other, the 1200+ entry Hereford show and many contests and events throughout the week-long activity. The junior association holds several meetings throughout the year and many fun activities planned for junior members and their families. We hope you will be come a member today!

2017 Missouri Opportunity Sale Donation Heifer
Don’t miss out on your chance at this Go Game Changer daughter! The Junior Association is very proud of this complete heifer, who has a lot of style! She sells as Lot 43 Sunday, December 3rd at the Missouri Oppurtunity Sale in Sedalia, MO. Sale starts at noon. All proceeds from this heifer go to benefit the Missouri Junior Hereford Association. We would also like to give a HUGE thank you to the Wood family for donating this heifer!
Concession Stand at the Missouri Opportunity Sale
The juniors will be hosting the concession stand for the Missouri Opportunity sale on Sunday, Dec. 3, at the state fairgrounds in Sedalia. We need each family to donate canned pop (any kind) and individually wrapped desserts (cookies, brownies, etc.) to sell that day. We’ll also need juniors to help with setting up, working and cleaning up afterwards. If you have questions, please contact Shannon Mueller or Mary Roth.
MJHA Shirt Sponsorships – Get Ready to Bid!
The MJHA will offer TWO sponsorships for the 2018 state t-shirts for auction at the MO Hereford Association banquet on Saturday, Dec. 2, in Sedalia. These sponsorships will include your farm or business logo on one of the sleeves of the shirt. Every MJHA member receives a state shirt to wear at the opening ceremonies of the JNHE, which will be in Grand Island, NE.
