Red Angus Shows

Regional Shows:

The Red Angus Association of America recognizes six shows throughout the United States as regional shows including the Iowa State Fair, Northern International Livestock Exposition, North American International Livestock Exposition, Red Western Classic, National Western Stock Show and the Fort Worth Stock Show. For 2021, the RAAA Board of Directors have approved the National Cattlemen's Congress as the National Open show. 

National Open Show:

The National Western Stock Show hosts the National Open show each year. Due to the cancellation of the 2021 NWSS, the Cattlemen's Congress will be the 2021 home of the National Red Angus Open Show.

National Junior Show:

The 2021 National Red Angus Junior Show will be held in conjunction with the North American Junior Red Angus Event in June.

The Red Angus Association of America has designated the North American Junior Red Angus Event as the official National Junior Red Angus Show for 2021. Historically, the National Junior Red Angus Show has coincided with the National Red Angus Show, which was formerly rotated through five host locations across the country. In 2021, the open and junior shows will be held separately.

In its 16th year, the NAJRAE has the largest junior show of Red Angus cattle in the country and also conducts a variety of contests and leadership development activities as part of the event. The NAJRAE is an independent non-profit organization governed by a membership-based board of directors and supported through dues and sponsorships.

The NAJRAE is scheduled for June 20-26, 2021, in Lebanon, Tennessee. The event will feature cattle exhibition, leadership development events, and contests such as livestock judging, herdsman quizzes, public speaking and sales talk.

Kimberly Heller, director of education and junior programs for the RAAA stated, “We are excited about the collaboration between RAAA and the NAJRAE on the 2021 National Junior Red Angus Show because the NAJRAE most closely aligns with the mission of our junior program by providing junior members a national experience that integrates leadership development, beef industry education and a show on the national level.”
