The Hereford Jr. Nationals are in Denver this summer! Did you shop accordingly??
Seems like the Angus Jr. Nationals take a turn in Denver every 4-5 years. It may be 2008 or 2009. If the shorthorns and maines are in Oklahoma this year, I'll bet they are in the eastern states next year.
Jill- are they all going to be in KS the same time? How will that work if they are?
Might be nice for families that show more than 1 breed. Can you show an animal as a dual registered in more than 1 show?
I'm on the Kansas Shorthorn Board of Directors so I know alittle about what is going on. A number of breeds are having there shows in consecutive weeks in Kansas City in order to save money on set up costs. It could definitely get interesting for people who have percentage cattle. It wouldn't be to hard to have a heifer that could show as a chi, shorty and maine. The funny thing is with how the shorthorn appendix program is set up a fullblood maine is considered 3/4 shorthorn. So a calf with no actual shorthorn blood can show in the shorthorn appendix show.
The Hereford Junior Show is in Kansas City in 2008, my daughter wanted to go to Denver this year but I didn't think it was a good idea since it would have been our first national show and I convinced her that KC is a better deal since it is less than 2 hours away for us. Took her to the regional show last summer in Springfield, MO and now she is all fired up about showing more. (clapping)
