The American Salers Junior Association (ASJA) began in 1983. The founders were young people who wanted to increase involvement of youth with Salers cattle and develop an interest in beef cattle agriculture.
Through family involvement, we as the ASJA will provide leadership and educational opportunities from positive members to bring lifetime skills and a positive image to the Salers breed. We will also bond from motivational and fun activities to bring together lifetime friendships.
We believe that through leadership, education, and the support of our breeders, we can develop members, enhance the Salers breed, and be an asset to the Agriculture Industry. Our purpose is to involve and educate our junior members to develop future leaders for the Beef Cattle Industry while representing the Salers breed and the cattle industry.
