Download Angus Mobile to Keep Up with NJAS Action

The app offers a schedule of events and more from the 2017 National Junior Angus Show.


Prior to arriving at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Des Moines, Iowa, be sure and download the latest version of the Angus Mobile smartphone app. The latest show information and Angus resources are at your fingertips when you download Angus Mobile.

“Angus Mobile allows members attending the NJAS to stay up-to-date with the latest news and showring coverage,” says Jena McRell, American Angus Association digital editor. “It’s free to download and can keep you informed throughout the event, whether you’re in Des Moines or following from home.”

Anyone with a smartphone or tablet can download Angus Mobile. Once the app is installed, the events section can be found at the bottom of the screen. Select “National Junior Angus Show 2017” to scroll through alerts, schedules, show results, maps, restaurants and much more.

After the event is over, Angus Mobile can be used to access herd information and news headlines from the American Angus Association. The app also offers tools such as a calving book and gestation calculator. Also, the event section is updated throughout the year to share coverage of other Angus events.

Visit the iTunes Store or the App Store from your iPhone, iPod or iPad. For Android devices, visit Google Play or the Amazon App Store and a quick search for “Angus” in the application link will lead you to the app.

For the best possible experience with Angus Mobile, update the application when a new version is released.

More than 850 Angus juniors from 34 states are expected to compete during the 2017 NJAS July 9-15 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa. An impressive 1,900 head of Angus cattle have been entered to compete in one of the year’s most anticipated livestock events.
