NJAA Announces New Age Rule for Competition

Angus youth who are eight years old can now exhibit cattle at Angus-sponsored shows.

Eight-year-old members of the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) are now eligible to show at Angus-sponsored competitions across the country. The new age rule, approved by the American Angus Association Board of Directors and the National Junior Angus Board (NJAB), takes effect Jan. 1, 2016.

“The recent change to age requirements will allow Angus juniors who are eight years old on Jan. 1 to be eligible to compete at our nationwide shows,” says Jaclyn Clark, Association director of events and education.

The NJAA sponsored more than 50 junior shows during the past year, involving nearly 5,000 Angus youth. According to the new rule, an exhibitor’s birthdate must fall between Jan. 1, 1995, and Dec. 31, 2007, to compete and be either a junior, regular or life member of the American Angus Association.

Major NJAA-sponsored competitions include the Mid-Atlantic Junior Angus Classic, Western Regional Junior Angus Show, Eastern Regional Junior Angus Show, Atlantic Nationals, Northwest Preview, the All-American Angus Breeders’ Futurity and the National Junior Angus Show.

However, the Association cannot guarantee this will occur at all upcoming events, depending on planning stages of the shows, and if there are questions, you should contact the show office directly.

NJAA Internship Deadline Oct. 15

The National Junior Angus Association selects an intern to serve January through August.

The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) offers an extended internship position for one college student each year, allowing them an inside look at what it takes to organize youth events across the country. The internship runs from January to August 2016 and allows students to spend eight months assisting with junior activities and traveling to a number of events.

“The extended internship is truly a unique way to gain experience in a real-world working environment,” says Jaclyn Clark, American Angus Association director of events and education. “We’re looking for a detail-oriented, outgoing individual who hopes to make a career working with youth in the livestock industry.”

The deadline to apply for the paid internship is Oct. 15. Aimed toward college sophomores, juniors or seniors, applicants must be enrolled in an agriculture-related major and have the ability to move to Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., throughout the entire internship.

Responsibilities include daily in-office tasks, preparations for NJAA-sponsored shows and conferences, working with the Green Coats: Coast to Coast program, and more depending on the intern’s interests. They will also assist with the NJAA website, Directions newsletter, National Junior Recognition Program, and other programs available to the NJAA membership.

Travel to the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference and other shows and events is expected.

To apply, submit a cover letter, resume and references to Jaclyn Clark, American Angus Association, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506. All applications must be postmarked by Oct. 15, 2015.

The January – August internship does not replace the summer-only internship offered by the Association. More details will be released regarding that opportunity later in the fall. For more details on internships offered through the Association, visit www.angus.org.

Plan for 2015 NAILE Angus Events

Deadlines approaching for the North American International Livestock Exposition.

In a few short months, Angus cattle enthusiasts will travel to Louisville, Ky., for shows and events during the 2015 North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE). From competitive events in the showring to a prestigious honor for Angus breeder Dave Nichols, Bridgewater, Iowa, the week’s activities begin Sunday, Nov. 15.

All shows will begin at 8 a.m. in the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center (KFEC) Freedom Hall. The Angus Junior Heifer Show takes place Sunday, Nov. 15; the Super-Point Roll of Victory (ROV) shows for bulls, cow-calf pairs and females (in that order) will be Monday, Nov. 16. Bruce and Amie Stertzbach of Louisville, Ohio, will judge the ROV Show. The junior show judges are to be announced.

If you’re exhibiting at the NAILE, the entry deadline is Oct. 1. The ownership deadline for the Angus Junior Heifer Show is Sept. 15. For more information or to submit entries, visit www.livestockexpo.org.

Saddle & Sirloin Induction Ceremony

Nichols has been selected as the 2015 inductee into the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Gallery, largely considered the highest honor in the livestock industry. Nichols is a current member of the American Angus Association Board of Directors, and Nichols Farms has grown under his leadership to encompass 5,500 acres, 1,500 head of breeding stock and a small feedlot.

The Saddle & Sirloin Club will honor these and Dave’s other industry contributions, too numerous to list, during a special program and portrait unveiling at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in the South Wing Conference Center of the KFEC.

Supporters can purchase ceremony tickets or make charitable gifts toward portrait and banquet expenses in Nichols’ honor. For more information, visit www.nicholssaddleandsirloin.com.

If you are attending or exhibiting at Angus events in Louisville, Ky., please plan now and secure a hotel room. The Crowne Plaza will serve as the Angus headquarters hotel, and rooms are available for $135 per night. Give them a call at 1-888-233-9527 or go online for more information. The room block ends Oct. 16.
