AJSA hosts Western Regional in Fort Collins

A Kansas teen earned overall senior and a Nebraska youth claimed the top junior division points in the American Junior Simmental Western Regional held June 11 to 14 at the CSU's Agricultural Research, Development and Education Center facility near Fort Collins, Colo.

In the multi-state regional, Jake Gleason of Maple Hill, Kan., was overall senior and Wyatt Kile of Red Cloud, Neb., was the high junior. Contestants competed in a cattlemen's quiz, which tested EPD and cattle industry knowledge; in public speaking, where participants draw a topic, then prepare and give a speech; sales talk where youth role play with a "prospective" buyer, a livestock judging contest, showmanship and the cattle show itself.

The Plains to Peaks Regional drew participants from four states, according to coordinators Bruce and Donna German. Colorado Simmental Association hosted the regional event for the second year in a row. Support came from numerous individuals, ranchers, Wild, Wild West sale participants, and groups/businesses, including Colorado Beef Council, Colorado State University, Farmer's Bank of Ault, Gallagher Animal Systems, Purina Mills Inc., and WW Feed and Supply.
