Favorite NAJRAE Memory: Brock started showing at NAJRAE in 2010 at the Stillwater, Oklahoma show.  At that time it was called NAJRAS, and he was a Pee Wee.  His “Big” mentor was Ryan Shuey from Iowa.  Together they won the treasure hunt contest and his award was a rope halter. Brock won the Pee Wee judging contest and his award was a giant glass diamond.  His brother, Ty, had the Grand Champion Steer and there was only 3 head shown that year.   Attending this event with his family jump-started their annual participation and they have only missed one, the 2016 Springfield, Illinois show.

Favorite NAJRAE Memory: My favorite memory goes back to my first NAJRAE in Grand Island Nebraska back in 2014. The truck broke down on my uncle and me numerous times on the way, luckily some friends of my uncles were nearby and they hooked on our trailer and away my heifer and I went. At the time I didn’t know these individuals, but we quickly grew a bond that lasts to this day. As a 12-year-old this was a week filled with a whirlwind of emotions, but because everyone was so welcoming my first NAJRAE quickly turned around winning the judging contest and exhibiting the Reserve Grand Champion Futurity Heifer. However, this wasn’t the best part of the trip….. It was the individuals I met that week that encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone, try new things and get involved with the Red Angus breed. Thank you to everyone who made this a memory that will last a lifetime.
