Jensen, Hinderlie selected as Hereford National Junior Merit Scholars

Brady Jensen, Courtland, Kan.; and Matthew Hinderlie, Oakville, Wash., were chosen the 2013 first and second place National Junior Merit Scholars by the Hereford Youth Foundation of America. The award was presented July 20, during the 14th annual VitaFerm Junior National Hereford Expo in Kansas City, Mo.

The Junior Merit Scholarships recognize outstanding members of the National Junior Hereford Association. The scholarship program is designed to encourage individual and cooperative effort, enthusiasm, excellence, leadership and achievement among youth in order to develop reputable breeders for the good of the Hereford business and beef industry.

Brady Jensen received a $2,000 scholarship, plus a trip to any Hereford operation in the continental U.S., made possible by American Livestock Insurance.

Jensen, 20, was elected at last year’s JNHE to be an NJHA director. He just completed his sophomore year at Butler Community College, El Dorado, Kan., where he was on the livestock judging team and was named the third-place All-American Academic and Livestock Judge. He will continue his education this fall at Kansas State University, majoring in animal science and ag economics. He was the 2012 Junior Herdsman of the Year and was selected as the 2013 JNHE champion senior showman.

Placing second was Matthew Hinderle. He received a $1,250 scholarship. Hinderle, 19, has served the Washington State Junior Hereford Association as president, vice president, reporter/historian and director. He completed two years at Centralia College, Centralia, Wash., and will start his studies in mechanical engineering at Washington State University this fall. He plans to have a career in agricultural engineering, designing the next great agriculture equipment.

The 2013 VitaFerm Junior National Hereford Expo was sponsored in part by Biozyme Inc., St. Joseph, Mo. The NJHA is one of the most active junior programs in the country with approximately 3,000 members. The NJHA’s mission is to create and promote enthusiasm for the breed while providing opportunities through leadership, education and teamwork. For more information about the NJHA, visit
