Posted August 30, 2018

DENVER – As the Red Angus breed continues to grow, several new livestock expositions and state fairs have added a Red Angus show to accommodate Junior Red Angus Association of America members. RAAA is excited to announce the American Royal will host its inaugural Red Angus show for junior and open exhibitors in October 2018.

The American Royal has been welcoming livestock exhibitors and enthusiasts to fill its historic halls for nearly 120 years. A Red Angus show at the American Royal is valuable to junior Red Angus members as an opportunity to showcase the breed and network with other exhibitors and beef industry stakeholders.

Chessie Mitchell, RAAA show coordinator, stated “The Red Angus Association of America is excited to add another Red Angus show to the list of exhibition opportunities available throughout the nation each year. We have had tremendous growth in registrations and memberships this past year. The growth that the breed is experiencing is a testament to the value and demand of Red Angus genetics in the marketplace. We look forward to the upcoming American Royal show as yet another avenue to highlight our breed’s strengths.”

The American Royal Red Angus junior and open shows will be Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, beginning at 5 p.m. Entries for the American Royal Red Angus show are due Sept. 14, 2018.
