New Location for the Maine-Anjou & Chianina National Junior Shows – Sioux Falls, South Dakota – June 30th – July 4th


Keep brushing & pack, we’re headed to So Dak!


We have secured a new location in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with the following dates: June 30 – July 4, 2020 and a full schedule will be posted next week.


The AJMAA & AJCA realize that this situation has been hard on everyone and we wish it was different. We are trying to make the 2020 event as normal as possible. With the current regulations and the unknown we believe a shortened schedule is a must, and although it will look different, the same principles apply and the show will go on.


Below are important updates about contests, lodging and more. Please read carefully so you are prepared. Thanks for your continued support and patience as we navigate this situation. Watch for more updates coming next week.
