2019 Junior National Hereford Expo Recap
Members of the NC Junior Hereford Association traveled to the Denver, Colorado to participate in the “Herefords on the Hill” Junior National Hereford Expo July 6- July 11, 2019. Representing NC in the Mile High City was Tyler Berrier, Nora Cave, Melanie Fishel, Wesley Fishel, Joy Leigh Hinnant, Jordan Mitchem, Regan Mitchem, and Skyler Murray.
In addition to exhibiting their cattle, these young people competed in several contests and learning activities throughout the week. We are proud to announce that Melanie Fishel placed first in Senior Individual Sales and second in Senior Extemporaneous Speech. Jordan Mitchem participated in Junior illustrated Speech. Melanie Fishel, Joy Leigh Hinnant, Regan Mitchem and Skyler Murray made it to the second buzzer round of the Hereford Bowl. Melanie Fishel, Jordan Mitchem, Regan Mitchem and Skyler Murray participated in the Judging Contest. Regan Mitchem made it to the final round of Intermediate Showmanship. Regan Mitchem won the Junior Golden Bull award. Melanie Fishel was selected at the Outstanding NC Junior member.
Melanie Fishel also did a fantastic job representing NC as Hereford Queen. North Carolina Hereford Princess, Regan Mitchem attended the Queen’s Tea with Melanie.
Regan Mitchem and Tyler Berrier represented NC as our Voting Delegates.
The NC Juniors had a very busy and successful week at the JNHE. It was a long trip, but well work the effort to compete at the last Junior National to ever be held at the Historic Denver Stockyards. We encourage other juniors to participate in the Junior National next year as it will be in Louisville, Kentucky. Please contact any of the NC Junior Hereford Association Officers or Advisors for more information.
