Annual Junior Angus Preview Show June 5 and 6 in Hutchinson

Kansas

Junior Angus exhibitors from across Kansas with gather for the annual Kansas Junior Angus Association Preview Show June 5 and 6 on the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. The show will feature divisions for registered Angus owned heifers, cow-calf pairs, steers and for bred and owned bulls and heifers.

All exhibitors will be eligible to compete in an age appropriate showmanship class. A special showmanship contest will be held to select two juniors that will represent the KJAA in the National Jr. Angus Showmanship Contest in Perry, Ga., later in the summer.

The two day event is much more than a cattle show. Juniors have the opportunity to compete in several educational contests even if they are not exhibiting cattle. A herdsman quiz contest is open to all members. Quiz questions and the length of the quiz will vary depending on the age of the contestant and will test juniors on their knowledge of the Angus and beef industries. Sample quiz questions may be found by visiting the National Junior Angus Association website www.njaa.info or by e-mailing Kansasangus@wbsnet.org .
