MISSISSIPPI JUNIORS ATTEND 2006 NATIONAL JUNIOR LIMOUSIN SHOW

The “30th Xtravaganza” 2006 National Junior Limousin Show and Congress (NJLSC) was July 9-14 in Lawton, Okla. The event featured some of the Limousin breed's most competitive shows and challenging satellite events, including photography, public-speaking and cattle-judging contests and the Limousin Beef Cook-Off. Nearly 260 North American Limousin Junior Association (NALJA) members also enjoyed the opportunity to become acquainted with other Limousin enthusiasts from the 25 states represented.

Five NALJA members from Mississippi traveled to Oklahoma for the show.

•      Wyatt Herrington, Ellisville, participated in the judging contest and Cow Camp.

•      Colton Dearman, Leakesville, participated in the judging, photography and public-speaking contests; Cow Camp; and team fitting.

•      Ethan Hodges, Leakesville, placed third in the Intermediate Division photography contest. He also participated in the judging and team-fitting contests and Cow Camp.

The North American Limousin Foundation (www.nalf.org), headquartered in Englewood, Colo., provides programs and services – including genetic evaluation of 5,000 active sires – to nearly 4,000 members and their commercial customers. The Limousin breed and its Lim-Flex® hybrid lead the beef industry in muscle-growth efficiency and ideally complement British breeds.
