Madalyn Carpenter Earns Junior Bronze Award
Madalyn Carpenter, Wadesboro, N.C., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze award, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.
Carpenter is the 14-year-old daughter of Nichole Carpenter and attends Anson High School. She is a member of the NJAA and the North Carolina Junior Angus Association, where she serves as royalty.
She has participated in local, state and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Carpenter participated in the livestock judging and quiz bowl contests. She also participated in the mentoring program in 2022. She was a participant in the Raising the Bar conference in 2023.
Carpenter consigned cattle to the EBS Farms Select Sale.
The Bronze award is the first level of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the award, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honor. 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.
