On a state level, junior memberships are available for any young person from birth through their 22nd birthday. 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 become a member today!

Reflecting on Summer Cattle Shows

As most of our junior members prepare to head back to school, we are able to reflect on what this past summer held for each and everyone of us. It has been a fun, busy, exciting, and rewarding summer this year for our junior members. 

We had twenty-five junior members exhibit at the Junior National Hereford Expo. They enjoyed a fun-packed week spending time with old friends and making new ones, competing in different events, and showing their calves; all while in the cooler temperatures in Madison, WI. Through the support of the Hereford breeders around the state we were able to provide lunch for all the junior members exhibiting that week to help alleviate the stress of meals on four of the
show days. 

This year our fundraising chairs, Kinleigh Bolin and Mary Grace Warden, have been working hard with our fundraiser efforts. We are raffling off a Weaver five-foot single door Show Box. The raffle will take place during the MO Opportunity Sale in December. 

We want to sincerely thank every breeder and supporter of our junior organization. It is because of you guys that we are able to help our juniors and continue to do what we do each and every show season throughout the year. 

I know growing up showing throughout the summer was my favorite part of the year and always seemed to go too quickly. I encourage each junior member to reflect on their summer and showing experience. I also encourage you to say thank you to your parents, aunt/uncle, grandparents, or anyone who helps or supports you during the show season.
