The North Dakota Junior Beef Expo, the state’s multi-breed junior beef field day, was scheduled for June 23-24 at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot, N.D. The show, which is organized by the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association and held in conjunction with the Ward County Shootout, was open to youth ages 21 years old and younger who are members of 4-H, FFA or a junior breed association. The Junior Beef Expo was filled with activities to appeal to anyone who is interested in the beef industry. Highlights were the heifer and steer shows and showmanship contest, but you will find plenty of things to do.
