What are your goals for 2021?

If you have not taken the time to set goals for what you want to accomplish with your junior Hereford project in 2021, now is the time to do so! Don’t let another year go by without a plan for how you want to improve and build your cow herd, but more importantly how you want to improve and build YOURSELF.  Being involved in Hereford activities opens up many opportunities on both the state and national levels. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Attend and participate in an MJHA meeting
  • Volunteer to serve on an MJHA committee
  • Attend the 2021 JNHE in Madison, Wis.
  • Participate in an individual contest at JNHE—illustrated speech, photography, poster or individual sales
  • Participate in a team contest at JNHE—CHB Grill Off, team marketing, Hereford Bowl or team fitting
  • Run for Missouri Hereford Queen
  • Enter cattle in the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout
  • Run for a position on the Missouri Junior Hereford Association board
  • Run for a position on the National Junior Hereford Association board

These opportunities and many more are waiting to help you develop your personal leadership skills and learn more about programs of the National Junior Hereford Association and the Hereford breed.  Sitting on the sidelines isn’t going to make you better at playing the game. Make a commitment to yourself to get involved and reach your goals this year!
