Members of the AJSA enjoy being a part of one of the largest youth organizations in the beef industry. Since the association is member driven and led by a Junior Board of Directors, all Shorthorn juniors make a contribution to the future of the organization. Often acknowledged as “The Shorthorn Family,” members are enthusiastic about helping each other and working together to improve the breed. Many states have active state junior associations who work on yearlong projects and travel together to various Shorthorn functions. Make sure to check out all the opportunities of the association in the Opportunities section of this site.
