Cheyanne Mock of Clyo will exhibit Angus cattle at the 2009 National Junior Angus Show at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agri Center in Perry, said Bryce Schumann, CEO of the American Angus Association.
The National Junior Angus Show will be held July 19-25.
Mock, a junior member of the American Angus Association with headquarters in Saint Joseph, Missouri, is one of 557 young Angus breeders from 31 states who have entered a total of 1,225 head in the show.
Frank Jackson, Sanborn, Minn., will judge the bred-and-owned cattle and cow-calf pairs. Bill Conley, Clarksdale, Mo., will evaluate the owned heifers. Brandon Callis, College Station, Texas, will judge the steers.
The National Junior Angus Show is the largest single-breed registered beef cattle show in the world. This year's event will host a beef cook-off, team sales competition, public speaking, photography, graphic design, writing and poster contests in addition to the traditional cattle show.
The National Junior Angus Show is sponsored by the American Angus Association and the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) and hosted by the Georgia Angus and Junior Angus Associations this year. The NJAA serves a membership of more than 7,000 junior Angus breeders in the U.S. and Canada.
