Creed Caldwell earns Junior Silver Award
Creed Caldwell, Parker, Kan., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Silver award, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.
Caldwell is the 17-year-old son of Matt Caldwell and attends Prairie View High School. He is a member of the NJAA and the Kansas Junior Angus Association.
He has participated in state and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Caldwell participated in the team sales and quiz bowl contests. He also participated in the Raising the Bar conference in 2023.
He has submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR®) and consigned cattle to the Dalebanks Angus Bull Sale.
The Silver award is the second 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.
