For twenty-six junior exhibitors, this was their first time to attend the national event.

The owned show judge, Lee Standley of Aledo, Texas and bred and owned judge, Alex Dees of Yuma, Arizona sorted through 250 entries exhibited by juniors representing 11 states.

In the Red Brangus division, Austin Acord of Madisonville, Texas won grand champion female with his yearling division winner while Katy Knox, LaPorte, Texas showed the reserve grand champion heifer.

In the bred and owned heifer show, Clint Faul, Rayne, La. walked away with the top honor of grand champion female and Stephanie Climer, Bells, Tenn. took home reserve honors with her senior division champion.
