Funding the future sale raises funds for Shorthorn juniors
The 2013 National Junior Shorthorn Show and Conference was held in Des Moines, Iowa, June 24 through June 29. On the evening of June 27, Shorthorn enthusiasts gathered at the Funding of the Future Sale to raise funds in support of the American Junior Shorthorn Association.
Beginning at the 2007 Junior Nationals in Lawton, Okla., the Funding of the Future Sale was created to help financially support the AJSA and its activities to ensure a greater future for the juniors of the Shorthorn Breed. Since then, the sale has been held every year during the week of Junior Nationals. An online version of the sale started in February 2012, which has offered frozen lots and semen or flush services.
During the sale, 19 live lots and 24 silent auction lots were sold that brought over $17,500. These lots included weekend trips, Shorthorn paraphernalia and promotional packages. Also included in the silent auction sale were six Arts & Crafts projects donated by juniors. These same projects were exhibited earlier in the week in the Arts contest. Juniors who donated their projects were: Kendra Berg, Osage, Iowa; Sydney Miller, Charlotte, Mich.; Coty Bell, Searcy, Ark.; Kaleb Miller, Lacona, Iowa; and Megan Dragstrem, Amboy, Ind. Great appreciation goes to all those who donated or purchased items off the Funding the Future Sale.
