North Dakota Junior Beef Expo
June 19-20, 2020
North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot
Competition, friends and fun!
The North Dakota Junior Beef Expo, the state’s multi-breed junior beef field day, is scheduled for June 19-20 at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot, N.D.
The show, which is organized by the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association and held in conjunction with the Ward County Shootout, is open to youth ages 21 years old and younger who are members of 4-H, FFA or a junior breed association.
The Junior Beef Expo will be filled with activities to appeal to anyone who is interested in the beef industry. Highlights are the heifer, cow-calf and steer shows and showmanship contest, but you will find plenty of things to do even if you don’t have an animal to bring along, such as participating in the Ag Olympics, a photography contest, coloring activity, pizza party and more. Special awards will be presented over the weekend including the NDSA member award, Hardest Worker Award, and a NDJBE scholarship.
The Junior Beef Expo is sanctioned by the North Dakota Junior Points Show Association. Youth who are part of the Point Show Program accumulate points for participation and achievement in sanctioned junior beef shows.
Heifer entries are $20 per head and market animal entries are $30 per head. The entry deadline is June 1. After June 1, all entries will be charged a $10 late fee.
All exhibitors will receive a NDJBE t-shirt, show premiums and two meal tickets.
Entries must be postmarked by June 1.
