A Note From the Junior President
My name is Brett King. I have been given the honor to be elected President of the American Junior Red Brangus Association at the 2018 National Show. I am a 4th generation Red Brangus Breeder. I live in Creole, Louisiana.
Wow, we had a great 2018 AJRBA National Show in the grand town of Bryan, Texas. The show was a huge success. I had a blast with the Junior Members. The show was a fun time as well as a learning experience. The participation in the show and contests was outstanding. I would like to congratulate all the participants, especially the winners. The activities challenged members’ abilities to display cattle, do public speaking, recognize farm tools and equipment, and most importantly demonstrating general knowledge of our breed.
I would like to give a special shout out to say thank you to our Junior Show Chairman, Mr. Roger Smith. Your efforts to make our show successful were extraordinary. Thank you to all the parents and family members that work throughout the year as they help us with our cattle project and assisted with the show activities. Sponsors, we would have not had a show without your continuing donations and support. Thank you so very much. Our show would not have been possible without the help given by each one of you.
Our Red Brangus breed is a “top pick”. They are “top picks” because of the traits of easy fleshing, light birth weights, and heavy weaning weights. They are also very adaptive to the climate that they are in. Our breed is extremely versatile and make perfect show animals.
Our junior organization has 80 members, and I look forward to seeing each of you at our 2019 National Show. I also look forward to working with the American Red Brangus Association led by Ms. Elaine Monaghan, the Board of Directors, the Junior Officers, and Junior Board of Directors as we promote Red Brangus cattle.
AJRBA President, Brett King
