The Texas Junior Livestock Association (TJLA) is a dynamic youth organization of students with an interest and passion in showing livestock. Four students from Guadalupe and Bexar counties serve as director in one of the six divisions of the state’s junior livestock association. Recently, Kylie Patterson, a member of the East Central FFA and the Clemens 4-H Club, was named president of the Texas Club Calf Association. Kylie is an eighth-grader at Heritage Middle School.

Three other area students serve as directors on the Texas Club Pig Association -- Julissa Gamez, Madison Langemeier, and Regan Langemeier.


princess contests

The Texas Junior Livestock Association holds two statewide events, often referred to as “Mini-Majors” -- the Belt Buckle Bonanza, held during the Fourth of July week, and the Fall Classic, held during the week of Thanksgiving.

During the Belt Buckle Bonanza, a huge livestock show is held, along with livestock judging, queen’s contests, and banquets.

This year, Kaitlyn Kempen and Kylie Patterson competed in the queen’s contest. Kaitlyn was named first runner-up in the sweetheart division and Kylie was named first runner-up in the princess division.

During the Fall Classic livestock show, members complete a community-service project and can participate in a fitting contest.

Texas Club Calf Association Steer President Kylie Patterson said, “This is the best youth livestock show association. You meet kids with similar interest, good morals, and we push each other to be better showmen, learn more about the industry and to be better animal caregivers.”

The state association offers local shows -- jackpot and prospect events -- throughout the state.

“There are usually several shows a weekend and our members are informed through the magazine and the website,” Kylie said. “So join today!”
