    Janie Tripp & Michelle Ogle — Belted Galloway Junior Association The Belted Galloway Junior Association celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the organization with a big splash during the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky. New friendships were made from coast-to-coast and North to South. BJGA members were busy during the three-day event with the usual prepping of their cattle for the open and junior shows plus the usual stall detail. Hard work and attention to detail did not go unnoticed as Claire Posey (MS) and Parker Korterba (TX) were awarded the Herdsman Awards. It was very obvious that members of the BGJA are talented photographers! Over thirty entries were entered in three categories that were split into two groups. First placings in the junior categories: Ashton Caron (ME) — black/white; Audrey Romani (ME) — color; Ashton Caron (ME) — all others. Firsts in the senior categories: Julia Weaber (KY) — black/white; Sophia Romani (ME) — color; Claire Posey (MS) — all others. Wednesday’s activities also included a scavenger hunt with members learning the grounds of the North American by retrieving items at various locations. What an impressive line-up of BGJA members and cattle at Kathi Jurkowski National Junior Show! Congratulations to Lillian Ford (IN) who received the $1000 Jackpot for her Grand Champion Steer. The $500 Jackpot went to Cody Mays (OK) with her prospect steer. We are excited that the Grand Champion Buckle program and the Jackpot program will continue in 2017. It is our desire to build incentives to promote and show Belted Galloway cattle. A live auction of three items was also held before the Premium Sale to additionally fund cash prizes and buckles at the 2017 event. A Belted Galloway hide donated by Ray Family Farms (NC) was purchased by

    Sherwood Acres LLC (KY) for $950 to benefit the 2017 junior show. A stuffed Belted Galloway donated by Magnolia Trace Farms was purchased by HC Sims Farm and commanded $1000. A framed print titled Yew Tree Belted Galloway went for $800 to Ray Family Farms (NC). Our 2016 Jackpot Steer Sponsors included Blisful Acres (OK), Diamond H Ranch (TX), Cross Creek Farm (NC), Hawks Belted Galloways (OK), KGM Farm (IN), Magnolia Trace Farm (MS), Pine View Farm (ME), Piney Hill Farm (MS), Southwest Belted Galloway Association.
