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!

Scholarship Opportunities


Join us in Sedalia Dec. 3-4

All MJHA members and their families are invited to join us for Missouri Hereford weekend in Sedalia, set for Dec. 3-4. If you are new to the Missouri Hereford family, this weekend the Missouri Hereford Association hosts its annual meeting and banquet, as well as the Missouri Opportunity Sale.

The MJHA will meet on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 9:30 a.m. in the Taylor Woods building on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. At this meeting we will start planning for the 2023 Junior National Hereford Expo in Madison, WI. Juniors will also need to pay 2023 MJHA dues, which are $15 per member.

The juniors will be accepting any donations for the silent auction, which begins on Saturday night during the banquet and ends on Sunday at the start of the Opportunity Sale. Any item is welcome, and we need bidders to make the auction a success!

During the MHA banquet on Saturday, Dec. 3, the juniors will auction off the sleeves of the state t-shirts that all members wear during opening ceremonies at the 2023 JNHE. Purchasing a sleeve allows the buyer to put their farm logo on the sleeve of each shirt. Four juniors also will be recognized at the banquet as Outstanding Junior Member in each of four age divisions:  Pee Wee, Junior, Intermediate and Senior.

The juniors will host a concession stand on Sunday, Dec. 4, to serve breakfast and lunch before the Missouri Opportunity Sale. We ask all junior members to donate a 12-pack of pop or a case of bottled water as well as individually packaged desserts (cookies, brownies, etc.) that can be sold at the stand. We appreciate your help with this fundraiser.
