The Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is the highlight of most Hereford youths' summer activities. It is held each July, and is co-sponsored by the AHA and affiliated junior and state Hereford associations.
Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, the JNHE provides an opportunity for competition of both 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.
The 2014 show will be held July 5-12 in Harrisburg, Pa.
