Avery Kimble earns Junior Bronze and Silver Awards

Avery Kimble, Montrose, Colo., 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.

Kimble is the 19-year-old daughter of Luke and Kristy Kimble and attends Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, where she studies Animal Science and Ag Business. She is a member of the NJAA and the Colorado Junior Angus Association.

Kimble has participated in local, state, regional shows and showmanship contests and has submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR®).

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.
