Dear CCN Reader,
The Kentucky Junior Cattlemen’s Association (KJCA) is gearing up for some amazing opportunities for our members! Our junior board has put a lot of dedication to the upcoming KJCA Fall Classic, the KJCA Academy, and the KJCA Cattle Working Contest.
The KJCA Fall Classic will be held September 29th to October 1st in Bowling Green, KY at the WKU L.D Brown Expo Center. We are excited to maintain our list of contests which include photography, skillathon, judging, team fitting, sales talk, showmanship, and ad design. We also will be having our prospect market, cow/calf, breeding heifer, and bull shows. While this is our biggest junior event of the year, it is run completely off of sponsorships and donations, and we need your support! If you are interested in being a sponsor, please email Bradon at email@example.com.
This fall we will also be hosting our first ever KJCA Academy on October 19th at the Hardin County Extension Office. This event is designed to provide a yearly educational topic for our KJCA Members across the state. This year the Academy will go over basic cattle working/handling skills, vaccine and needle handling, as well as other BQCA principles.
Registration is open now and will close October 5th. This event will also go over information for this spring’s KJCA Cattle Working Contest. We are so excited to be able to offer these experiences for our members in the upcoming months. The KJCA has been an excellent tool for agriculture and youth involvement. If you have any questions about the opportunities within our association, how to register for any of our events, or how you can support the KJCA, please visit kycattle.org/kjca.
We hope to see you all very soon!
