AGJA Donation Heifer or $1000 Cash Raffle

Each year the American Gelbvieh Junior Association (AGJA) holds a heifer raffle to raise funds for the association and its members. A special thanks goes to a new donor for the 2024 raffle, Warner Beef Genetics for donating this year’s heifer. All proceeds benefit AGJA programs, events and activities fostering industry education, growth, and leadership! The AGJA continues to provide leadership opportunities to AGJA members and provide everyday services to its members thanks in large part to the support of fundraiser efforts just like this one. Drawing takes place Monday, January 1, 2024 at 5:00 pm (CDT) during the AGA National Sale held in conjunction with the 2024 Cattlemen’s Congress. Ticket buyers will be given the option at the time of purchase to either take the heifer or $1000 if selected during the AGA National Sale; need not be present to win!

The heifer raffle is AGJA’s largest fundraiser, and all junior members are encouraged to participate.
