Jordan Brooke Jones of Kenton will exhibit Angus cattle at the 2009 National Junior Angus Show at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agri Center in Perry, Ga., July 19-25, according to Bryce Schumann, CEO of the American Angus Association®.
Miss Jones, a junior member of the American Angus Association, headquartered in Saint Joseph, Mo., is one of 557 young Angus breeders from 31 states who have entered a total of 1,225 head in the show.
Frank Jackson of Sanborn, Minn., will judge the bred-and-owned cattle and cow-calf pairs. Bill Conley of Clarksdale, Mo., will evaluate the owned heifers. Brandon Callis of College Station, Texas, will judge the steers.
The National Junior Angus Show is the largest single-breed registered beef cattle show in the world. This year’s event will host a beef cook-off, team sales competition, public speaking, photography, graphic design, writing and poster contests in addition to the traditional cattle show.
The National Junior Angus Show is sponsored by the American Angus Association and the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) and hosted by the Georgia Angus and Junior Angus Associations this year.
The NJAA serves a membership of more than 7,000 junior Angus breeders in the United States and Canada.
