Lane Pellerin earns Junior Silver Award

Lane Pellerin, Zachary, La., 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.

Pellerin is the 12-year-old son of Chris and Shelley Pellerin. He is a member of the NJAA and the Louisiana Junior Angus Association, where he serves as director.

He has participated in local, state and regional shows and showmanship contests.

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.
