Can you guess who our entertainment speaker for opening ceremonies will be this year? She’s traveled 35,000 miles across the United States and Canada to be a voice for both rodeo and agriculture. Her degree comes from Mississippi State University. Her heart beats for her family’s cattle ranch. Her faith is in God above. In December she will compete for Miss Rodeo America at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, hoping to be the third Miss Rodeo America to hail from the great state of Mississippi. You guessed it, Miss Rodeo Mississippi, Emma Jumper! Emma will be speaking about the hardships and joys of life on the cattle ranch and motivating us to recognize that the week we get to spend together is so much more than “just a cattle show.”
As a Junior Board we are working very hard to have as many people as possible at this event. We hope that you all will be able to attend. This year is shaping up to be the biggest yet. We have over twenty new members and cannot wait to share what Salers cattle and our Junior National is all about!
Don’t forget that registration is online only and is live now! Early registration closes May 15th. The 2017 Salers Jr. Nationals will be held in Corinth Mississippi June 26th– 30th. The Futurity is July 1st! As you read above, we have many new, exciting things planned for this year. You don’t want to miss it! To stay up to date, make sure to join us on Facebook at American Salers Junior Association.
