A new rule for the steer show will take effect during the 2023 VitaFerm Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Madison, Wis., July 8-14. This rule was voted on and installed by the NJHA board. The new rule reads as follows:

    “All steers will be required to be parent verified to both sire and dam, therefore, a DNA profile of the steer, the sire and dam must be completed through the official AHA lab by entry deadline. To request a DNA kit for your animal, access your MyHerd or contact AHA customer service.”
