The GKB Super States Contest was designed to reward the state junior associations for their members' involvement in the contests and exhibition of their cattle throughout the week at the Junior National Hereford Expo.
There will be two divisions based on the number of cattle that are physically entered at the JNHE. The divisions are: Division 1) Less than 25 head; Division 2) 25 head or more.
