June 20, 2011

Shane Heizer of Hagerstown will exhibit Angus cattle at the 2011 National Junior Angus Show July 10 to 16, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa., according to Robin Ruff, director of junior activities for the American Angus Association.

Shane, a junior member of the American Angus Association with headquarters in St. Joseph, Mo., is one of 549 young Angus breeders from 39 states and Canada who have entered a total of 1,170 head in the show.

Alan Miller of Gridley, Ill., will judge the bred-and-owned cattle and cow-calf pairs. Ernie Wallace of Stotts City, Mo., will evaluate the owned heifers. Mark Johnson of Orlando, Okla., will judge the steers.

In addition to the traditional cattle show, this year’s event will include a beef cook-off; team sales competition; and public speaking, photography, graphic design, writing, poster and other contests.

The National Junior Angus Show is sponsored by the American Angus Association and the National Junior Angus Association, and hosted by the Pennsylvania Angus and junior Angus associations this year.

The NJAA serves a membership of nearly 6,500 junior Angus breeders in the United States and Canada.
