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!

NOTE FROM THE ADVISORS – February 2022

Below is a to-do list for all Missouri Junior Hereford Association
(MJHA) members to get prepared for the summer show season. Make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun and activities! PAY MJHA DUES Dues are $15 per member and must be paid by April 1, 2022, for members to be eligible to win MJHA awards and vote for directors and outstanding member awards. Make checks payable to MJHA and mail to: Taylor Miller, MJHA Treasurer, 20500 Souix Drive, Lebanon, MO 65536.

CHECK TATTOOS on all animals you plan to show and make sure that tattoos on registration papers match what is in your animals’ ears.

DOUBLE CHECK ALL DEADLINES because they are coming up fast! Ownership and entry deadlines as well as contest sign-up deadlines for Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), set for July 16-22 in Louisville, KY, can be found at www.hereford.org under “YOUTH.” Also, check the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association website at www. mocattle.org for early entry deadlines and information about the Missouri Junior Cattlemen’s Association (MJCA) All-Breeds Show in Sedalia, set for June 9-11 in Sedalia, Missouri.

SELECT CONTESTS you want to participate in at the 2022 JNHE.
A full list of contests, age divisions and rules can be found at www. hereford.org under “YOUTH.” If team fitting or Hereford bowl are on that list, let an MJHA advisor know by June 1 so that state-
level tryouts can be held at the MJCA All-Breeds Show in June to determine team members for the national contests.

MAKE RESERVATIONS for any hotels or camping spots for shows you plan to attend.

ATTEND THE NEXT MJHA MEETING, which is set for Saturday, June 10, starting 30 minutes after the completion of the MJCA show in Sedalia. We will cover association business and important information for all juniors planning to attend JNHE.
