The American Gelbvieh Junior Association (AGJA) is finalizing details for the 2011 AGJA Twister Classic scheduled for July 3-8 in Kearney, Neb., at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds.
Named each year for the site location, the 2011 Twister Classic is open to AGJA members. In addition to shows for Gelbvieh and Balancer® cattle, the week-long event provides opportunities to compete in leadership contests such as impromptu speaking, sales talk, quiz bowl, livestock judging and more.
“Participating in a national show like this not only provides an opportunity to compete nationally, but it also provides a chance to see great cattle and meet Gelbvieh youth and breeders from across the country,” says Dana Stewart, American Gelbvieh Association director of member services and director of youth programs.
“With the show’s location, it’s an excellent time for anyone in the surrounding areas to start a Gelbvieh or Balancer show heifer project. We invite anyone with an interest in cattle and especially Gelbvieh to come and participate or watch the show.”
For more information about the show, AGJA, or the American Gelbvieh Association, please visit www.www.gelbvieh.org or call 303-465-2333. Entry packets will be available online. Entries close June 1.
The 2011 Twister Classic is sponsored by the American Gelbvieh Junior Association and jointly hosted by the Junior Gelbvieh Association in Nebraska and the Kansas Gelbvieh Junior Association.
