Regional Shows

AGJA also sponsors two regional shows each year, an eastern regional and a western regional. Typically a three day event, the shows provide competition and show opportunities on a smaller, more local level for AGJA members. Similar to the annual Junior Classic, regional shows are also held at a different location each year and are hosted by the respective junior state association.

If your state junior Gelbvieh association is interested in hosting a regional show, be sure to reach out to AGA Youth Activities Coordinator, Jake Renner, at for more information on how the AGJA can help!
