About the JNHE

One of the largest junior breed shows in the U.S., the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is the highlight of the NJHA’s summer activities. It is held every July, and is co-sponsored by the AHA and affiliated junior and state Hereford associations.

Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, this summer show provides an opportunity for competition between junior members and their cattle projects. A hands-on type of program for youth provides educational, leadership and motivational forums. During the event youth can participate in 22-skill based contests.
