A note from the Jr President

What a great summer! The American Junior Red Brangus Association (AJRBA) reached new heights in June at our very exciting national junior show. It was wonderful catching up with old friends and making new memories. We competed in the quiz bowl and the always hilarious costume contest, showed off our skills in showmanship and crowned a new queen for 2014-15! The week was definitely the highlight of my summer. Soon, the AJRBA officer team will be putting out information on our next junior meeting and events for this upcoming year. The officer team is planning for another successful year as we aim to increase participation of the junior members as well as continuing the increase of membership. I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

A Message from the Junior Committee Advisors

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the National Junior Red Brangus Show in Lake Charles, Louisiana. As junior advisors, we want to commend the junior officers, volunteers and junior committee. Their hard work and dedication makes events such as these possible.

This year’s events kicked off with a tour of Louisiana Spirits. The juniors and their families learned another aspect of the agriculture industry during this tour. Our junior members and their families enjoyed authentic Louisiana cuisine throughout the week provided by Mr. and Mrs. Chad Dartez and Sam and Julie Fontenot.

The juniors competed in Ag Olympic Competitions where they won “barn bucks.” These “bucks” could then be used to purchase items at a junior-only auction. Throughout the week the juniors competed in numerous contests: sales, showmanship, photography, quiz bowl, costume, and a skillathon. There was truly a contest for everyone’s interest.

Mr. Stuart Watkins of Welsh, Louisiana, evaluated the cattle vying for top honors. All the participants did a wonderful job exhibiting their cattle.

The American Junior Red Brangus Association National Junior Show would not be possible without the generosity and support of our sponsors, businesses, and breeders. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported our junior program. A special thank you to Mrs. Jeanie Engle for all your help with the silent auction, Katy Knox for once again providing a super challenging skillathon, Shawn Knox for being always willing to help do whatever needs to be done, Trevor Reifel for once again taking the lead on the Quiz Bowl Contest, Cecil and Stacie Ford for always making fabulous auction items and always lending a much needed hand, MSU Department of Animal Science for assisting in the livestock judging contest, and countless others that play a vital role in pulling such an event off each year. We would also like to thank our committee members for their hard work and dedication throughout the week: Joe and Jeanie Engle, Sam and Julie Fontenot, Cecil and Stacie Ford, Shawn Knox, Katy Knox, Trevor Reifel, Corey and Shannon Suire.

We look forward to another successful show season and year of activity planning. Stay updated on current plans and show location by following the American Red Brangus Association Facebook page or www.americanredbrangus.org. See you down the show road!

Respectfully
John and Mandy M. Fischer
