Stockmen's Association invites youth to North Dakota Junior Beef Expo
Entry deadline is June 1
The North Dakota Stockmen's Association (NDSA) is now accepting entries for the 2017 North Dakota Junior Beef Expo (NDJBE), a multi-breed junior beef field day to be held June 23-24 at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot, N.D.
Now in its 23rd year, the NDJBE will again feature heifer, cow-calf pair and market animal shows, a showmanship contest, supreme champion selection, scholarship presentation, silent auction and networking activities for youth to compete, learn and develop friendships with others who are interested in livestock projects and the beef industry.
Entry forms, rules, scholarship applications and other information about the show can be found at www.ndstockmen.org or on the "North Dakota Junior Beef Expo" Facebook page. The information is also available by calling (701) 223-2522.
Entries are due June 1 and can be mailed to the NDSA office at 407 S. 2nd St., Bismarck, ND 58504. Exhibitors will receive a t-shirt and a Friday night supper ticket. Late entries will be accepted for an additional $10 per head, but t-shirts cannot be guaranteed for late entrants.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Riverside, located across the street from the North Dakota State Fairgrounds. To make reservations, call (701) 852-2504 and ask for the "JBE room block" to receive the discounted rate of $89 plus tax. The block will be released June 8.
The NDJBE will be held in conjunction with the Ward County Shootout Show, which will be held June 23. Both shows are sanctioned with the North Dakota Junior Point Show Association.
The NDSA is an 87-year-old beef cattle trade organization representing more than 3,000 cattle-ranching families across the state.
