Angus youth and their families travel hundreds, and even thousands, of miles to the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) each year to showcase progress within the Angus breed. The 2016 NJAS takes place July 3-9 at the Nebraska State Fairgrounds in Grand Island, Neb.
The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) is the largest association of its kind, and provides its junior members the opportunity to learn responsibility, work ethic and determination. These youth are the next generation of quality beef producers, and this is their week to shine.
The NJAS is a six-day event that includes one of the largest junior cattle shows in the nation, as well as educational competitions, career development events and much more. The premier event involves Angus youth and their families, and this year, more than 820 NJAA members are expected to travel from across the country for the show.
