Texas Junior Livestock Association
Kaitlyn Kempen, Texas Junior Livestock Association’s first runner-up in the 2011 Sweetheart pageant, proudly displays her many awards.
The Texas Junior Livestock Association, founded in 1979, is divided into six different divisions -- the Texas Club Pig Association, the Texas Club Meat Goat Association, the Texas Club Lamb Association, the Texas Club Calf Association, and the Texas Club Livestock Judging Association, the newest division of the association.
Each of the animal divisions is represented by 10 elected junior directors, with the exception of the cattle division, which has 20 elected directors.
Yearly membership in the Texas Junior Livestock Association offers the member a subscription to Showbox Magazine, discount rates to hotels, complete access to the www.theshowbox.com website, and other benefits.
All points accumulated by members involved in show and judging contests are tracked and published by the Texas Junior Livestock Association. At the end of the year, all points will be totaled and year-end and iconic awards jackets are presented during the Belt Buckle Bonanza. This year, the jacket style was changed by the junior directors, said Cherie Carrabba, executive director of the Texas Junior Livestock Association. It will include a “North Face Style” jacket for the year-end top 10 winners. The champion breed, regional, and showmanship division winners will receive a trophy belt buckle.
