The Limousin breed will enjoy some Louisiana-style Southern hospitality at the 2007 "Bayou Bash" National Junior Limousin Show and Congress (NJLSC).
The West Monroe Ike Hamilton Expo Center and the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in West Monroe, La., will host the NJLSC July 22-28, 2007. The weeklong, family-oriented event will include membership meetings, cattle shows, showmanship competitions and a variety of satellite events. It all helps young Limousin enthusiasts have fun while learning about the beef industry, public speaking, marketing and leadership.
More than 200 exhibitors and their families (600 to 800 people total) will bring about 400 head of cattle to the event. The concluding awards banquet will recognize participants' achievements.
The purpose of the North American Limousin Junior Association (NALJA) and its NJLSC is to develop knowledgeable, motivated beef industry leaders while promoting the Limousin breed through fellowship, leadership and education.
