National Junior Limousin Show will be 'Big Texas Shindig 2'
About 200 North American Limousin Junior Association members and their families will bring about 500 head of cattle to Amarillo, Texas, July 11 to 17, for the "Big Texas Shindig 2" National Junior Limousin Show and Congress. The Texas Limousin Association will host the weeklong, family-oriented event, which will include membership meetings, social activities, cattle shows, showmanship competitions and a variety of satellite educational events.
Mark McClintock of Menard, Texas, will judge the owned-female show. Evaluating the steer, bred-and-owned and Lim-Flex shows will be Steve Kennedy of Muleshoe, Texas. Brett and Justin Barber, Channing, Texas, will judge the showmanship contests.
Early entries are due to the North American Limousin Foundation by May 15. June 10 is the final entry deadline. For more information, call NALF at 303-220-1693. Or visit www.nalf.org, click the "Juniors" link on the left, and open the summer 2009 NALJA News.
NALJA and its NJLSC aim to develop knowledgeable, motivated beef industry leaders while promoting the Limousin breed through fellowship, leadership and education.
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.
