Guardians of the Plains
More than 750 Angus juniors and their families traveled to Grand Island, Neb., to compete in the 2023 NJAS July 1-8 at Five Points Bank Arena.
Capes were secured and masks put in place as the superheroes of The Business Breed
gathered for the 2023 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). Hosted in Grand Island,
Neb., July 2-9, National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) members spent a week of their
summer showcasing what it takes to serve as “Guardians of the Plains.”
At this year’s show, young Angus enthusiasts were reminded that the best heroes are the ones who never stop being amazed by their own strength, know how to celebrate humbly in their successes and aren’t afraid to lean on their sidekicks. The best heroes are proud members of the Angus family.
In and out of the show ring, surrounded by mentors and friends, NJAA members created
new memories while embracing their competitive spirit during the seven-day event. Seven
hundred and thirty-nine exhibitors from 37 states made up a total of 1,757 entries. Beyond
the impressive turnout of black-hided cattle, juniors were able to participate in more than
20 contests. Upwards of 80 scholarships were also awarded at the NJAS.
The only kryptonite of this Angus group? Knowing they’ll have to wait another 365
days to enjoy the next NJAS.
