Marli Phillips earns Junior Bronze and Silver Awards

Marli Phillips, Masontown, W.V., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze and Silver awards, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.

Phillips is the 18-year-old daughter of TJ and Bridget Phillips and attends Preston High School. She is a member of the NJAA and the West Virginia Junior Angus Association, where she has served as vice president and president.

She has participated in state and regional shows. Phillips has submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR) and has also submitted DNA samples for Genomic Profile Testing through Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI).

She has consigned cattle to the Mountaineer Genetic Alliance.

The Bronze and Silver awards are the first two levels 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 4,500 active members nationwide.
