From the American Junior Shorthorn Association:
We have stayed in constant communication with the Taylor County Expo Center and Abilene, TX over the past few weeks to learn how COVID-19 would affect the National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference this summer.
We are excited to announce that they have given us the green light for our event scheduled for June 22-27 as long as we adhere to guidelines set forth by the Governor of Texas and Taylor County Expo Center in Abilene, TX. We feel that these guidelines, are what we all have grown accustomed to, and do not cause significant restrictions that would hinder the enjoyment of the activities for this event.
The Taylor County Expo Center will be taking precautions to be sure that surfaces and areas are sanitized, along with requesting that those who attend continue to follow the safety precautions that we all have been following to protect ourselves. Taylor County Expo Center is excited for our show and the arrival of Shorthorn juniors and their families.
The staff at the American Shorthorn Association, the American Junior Shorthorn Association Board and the ASA Board, are all looking forward to gathering with the Shorthorn family for one of the best weeks of the year.
The normal office function for the American Shorthorn Association will resume on May 18th. Be sure to contact the office if you need any help registering or transferring animals. Entries are due May 25th! You must have animals in the correct ownership by the entry deadline.
We are working hard to finish planning a great week of activities! The junior board has spent many hours planning for this event. They have updated contest rules and planned for other new activities. This year, Flatland Cavalry, a Texas Country band, will be performing!
We can’t wait to see everyone in June for Shorthorns and Spurs!
