Hey Sure Champ enthusiasts!
We’re here at the BioZyme Headquarters in St. Joseph, MO in the midst of packing our trailer for Grand Island, NE for three weeks of junior national fun!
We will start out our time in Nebraska at the North American Junior Red Angus Event and from there we will welcome our friends coming to the National Junior Shorthorn Show. We will close out our time in Grand Island with the Junior National Hereford Expo.
Many annual events come with junior national shows, from the cattle shows themselves, to cook outs, basketball and golf tournaments. We’re looking forward to all of them! Although we like to hang around the barn all day and take in the events at the show, we have found some fun spots to relax and grab a bite to eat in Grand Island!
Check out our recommendations and let us know about any others we need to try!
