Farm Forum

Indianapolis, Ind., will be welcoming junior Angus members and families from across the nation in 2014 as it hosts the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). The week-long event is set for July 6 – 12, 2014. Besides cattle shows, the week encompasses a variety of other junior activities.

“We are proud to be hosting the 2014 National Junior Angus Show in Indy,” says Kathy Wilson, NJAS co-chair. “Indiana has a rich heritage in the Angus business, and we look forward to planning an outstanding NJAS for our Angus juniors.”

Sponsored by the Indiana Junior Angus Association, the NJAS is themed “Angus in the Heartland – You gotta love it!” Indiana has hosted the show as recently as 2006 and is excited to make this event a fun-filled and educational week for junior Angus enthusiasts and their families.

More than 1,000 head of cattle are expected to compete in Indianapolis. The classes offered will provide opportunities for juniors to exhibit their owned heifers, bred-and-owned heifers, cow-calf pairs, steers, and bred-and-owned bulls.

Additional events will include the National Showmanship Contest, NJAS Carcass Steer Contest, Cook-off Contests, and educational contests that include: prepared and extemporaneous public speaking, career development, graphic design, writing, photography, livestock judging, and video and poster competitions.

More details on the 2014 NJAS will be released as they become available. This July, the NJAS is being held in Kansas City, Mo. Read more about the upcoming event online. More information regarding the NJAS program can be accessed at
