Rory Forbes earns Junior Bronze Award

Rory Forbes, Zachary, La., 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.

Forbes is the 15-year-old daughter of Melanie Forbes and attends Central Private School. She is a member of the NJAA and the Louisiana Junior Angus Association, where she serves as 2nd vice president.

She has participated in local, state and national shows and showmanship contests. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Forbes participated in the livestock judging contest and the All-American Certified Angus Beef® Cook-Off. She also participated in the 2023 mentoring program.

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.
