Adam McCauley Earns Junior Bronze Award
Adam McCauley, Cynthiana, Ky., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze award, according to Jaclyn Clark, education and events director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.
The 10-year-old son of Timothy and Nell McCauley attends Harrison County Middle School and is a member of the NJAA and the Kentucky Junior Angus Association.
He has participated in local, state, regional and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Adam participated in the photography, graphic design, poster, quiz bowl and livestock judging contests. He was also a participant in the mentoring program in 2015 and 2016.
He has submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR).
The Bronze award is the first level of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.
The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 6,000 active members nationwide.
