RISING CITY  – The Nebraska Junior Beef Expo will be held on Friday, June 2nd, Saturday, June 3rd, and Sunday, 4th, 2017, at the Northeast Community College in Norfolk, Nebraska.  Seven cattle organizations, along with their youth participants, are planning to make its 20th anniversary a huge success.  Breeds represented at this event will be Simmental, Red Angus, Charolais, Shorthorn, Maine-Anjou, Chianina and Limousin.  Each are responsible in working together to present educational contests and cattle show competitions.

Approximately 80 youth, ages 8 to 21, from these breed associations, will compete for prizes and trophies in various competitions ranging from Sales Talk Competition and Poster/Photography Contests to Judging and Showmanship Contests to Interview/Resume Contests. Each contest, along with Showmanship, is divided into a junior and a senior division. The NJBE committee will check-in over 100 cattle entries that represent these seven breed organizations.

Each breed provides their individual contest awards and each contest winner is eligible to win the Supreme Awards presented by the NE Jr. Beef Expo Committee.  Supreme Awards presented by the committee include Supreme Individual Contest Awards, Supreme High Percentage Breeding Heifer, Supreme Low Percentage Breeding Heifer, Supreme Jr. and Sr. Showmanship, Supreme Market Animal and Supreme Bred & Owned.
