Amarillo to host National Junior Limousin Show, All-American Limousin Futurity
The Texas Limousin Association will host the National Junior Limousin Show and Congress at the Tri-State Expo Complex and the Ambassador Hotel in Amarillo, July 11 to 17. The week-long, family-oriented event will include membership meetings, social activities, cattle shows, showmanship competitions and a variety of satellite educational events. It all helps North American Limousin Junior Association members have fun while learning about the beef industry, public speaking, marketing and leadership.
Matt McClintock of Fort McKavett, Texas, will evaluate the owned females. Steve Kennedy of Muleshoe, Texas, will judge the steer, bred-and-owned and Lim-Flex shows. The NALJA Board of Directors will approve the showmanship judges at its April meeting.
More than 200 exhibitors and their families (800 to 1,000 people total) will bring about 500 head of cattle to the event. The concluding awards banquet will recognize participants' achievements through NALJA and spotlight the association's purpose--to develop knowledgeable, motivated beef industry leaders while promoting the Limousin breed through fellowship, leadership and education.
Entry fees for this year's NJLSC are $30 per animal entered by May 15. Late-entry fees will be $60 per animal entered after May 15. The NJLSC will not accept entries after June 10. Contact the North American Limousin Foundation at 303-220-1693 for more information and entry forms.
The All-American Limousin Futurity also will take place at the complex July 17. This year's event will include purebred, Lim-Flex and fullblood shows. Joel Cowley of Houston, Texas, will be the judge. The AALF open show is one of NALF's four major Medal of Excellence shows.

The North American Limousin Foundation (www.nalf.org), headquartered in Centennial, Colo., provides programs and services--including genetic evaluation of 5,000 active sires--to more than 4,000 members and their commercial customers. The Limousin breed and its Lim-Flex hybrid lead the beef industry in muscle-growth efficiency and ideally complement British breeds.
