Junior Show

Picture Contest

due October 20th

2020 Contest was held slightly different- as there were very few shows to report results from!  Members were asked to submit a current picture from the month of November of an animal they were currently working with.  Caring for, developing, and training cattle to show is a year-round commitment regardless if there are shows to exhibit at or not!
