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!
