Having been a part of the National Western Stock Show since 1909, Angus cattle have a rich tradition here in Denver. With such a long history, it comes as no surprise that the National Western Junior Angus Show was well-attended.
Judge Johnathan Perry of Fayetteville, Tennessee, had the pleasure of sorting through more than 230 head of Angus females before naming his champions. Top Line Lady 3330 owned by Scott Bayer of TC Reds, Ringle, Wisconsin, was selected as Grand Champion Angus Junior Breeding Heifer. Sydney Schnoor of Schnoor Sisters, Chowchilla, California, exhibited the Reserve Grand Angus Junior Breeding Heifer, Schnoor Winnie 9323.
Also evaluated during the Junior Angus Show were Grand and Reserve Grand Champion Cow/calf Pairs. Krista Bates of Manhattan, Montana, won the title with Cherry Knoll Elisha 1146. Reserve Grand Cow/Calf Pair honors went to Leslie Craig of Harrodsburg, Kentucky, with DC Kansas Kitty 210.
