Angus Junior National Recap

Once again the National Junior Angus Show was a huge success! The opening ceremonies kicked off the event with excited juniors, and a great performer sponsored by Sure Champ. Show day couldn’t come fast enough, and it was busy, busy for the Sure Champ crew. There were T-shirts to give out, Sure Champ customers to be helped, and a nutrition clinic to prepare for.

Cody Sankey, Biozyme Inc. Area Sales Manager, gave an educational clinic to over 100 exhibitors on the importance of nutrition for both show animals as well as more production-oriented animals. He highlighted how our products like Sure Champ and VitaCharge can help to ignite your animal’s appetite, increase their feed efficiency, and promote their overall health to make sure they are always looking their best.

Finally show day was upon us. All of the hard work and long days that each and every exhibitor had put into their Angus cattle shined in the show ring. The bred and owned females were first to kick off the festivities in the ring. We would like to congratulate Sure Champ customer, Sydney Schnoor, on Grand Champion Bred and Owned Female and Sure Champ customer, Blake Boyd, on Reserve Grand Bred and Owned Female. Sure Champ customers continued to dominate the Angus ring as they claimed banners for Grand Champion Owned Pair owned by Logan Alex Wright, Reserve Champion Owned Pair owned by Sydney Schnoor, Grand Champion Steer owned by Garrett Gardner, and Reserve Grand Champion Steer owned by Katy Tunstill. Also  Grand Champion Bred and Owned steer owned by Ryan Callahan, Reserve Grand Bred and Owned Steer owned by Brody Fitzgerald, Grand Champion Bred and Owned Bull owned by Jared Radcliffe, Reserve Grand Champion Bred and Owned Bull owned by Matthew Mitchell, Grand Champion Bred and Owned Cow Calf Pair owned by Ryan Callahan, and Reserve Grand Champion Bred and Owned Pair owned by Lauren Grimes.

With the arrival of the last day of the show everyone was waiting with anticipation for the selection of the Grand and Reserve Champion Owned Females. When the time came and all of the Division Champions and Reserves had been chosen. Special congratulations go out to Sure Champ customers, Calli Ann West, with Grand Champion Owned Female and Eric Schaefer, with Reserve Grand Champion Owned Female at the 2014 National Junior Angus Show.

We are very proud of all of our customers and the results that every one of them are achieving with the help our products.
