Junior PACE Program

The Junior PACE (Point Accumulation Event) program began in 2004, patterned after the Open PACE program, as a way to recognize and award youth who exhibit award-winning purebred heifers at sanctioned national junior shows where juniors from any state are eligible to compete. The cattle in these junior shows accumulate Junior PACE points based on the placing of the animal and the size of the show and vie for year-end Junior All-American titles. This is not only a way to recognize juniors for their hard work and dedication to the breed during the year, but also recognizes the pedigrees that make a mark on the breed’s quality and performance.
