Final JNHE Deadline is Wednesday
The final Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) ownership and entry deadline is May 20, but animals purchased in Hereford production sales after May 20 will be accepted until June 1. No late entries will be accepted.
Thanks to everyone who has used the JNHE online entry system. We are in the process of verifying entries and will send confirmations when that process is completed.
The JNHE will be July 4-11 in Tulsa, Okla. Visit the JNHE Web site to enter online. To download printable entry forms visit the NJHA Web site. If you have any questions about the online entry process, or anything relating to the JNHE, contact AHA Youth Activities Director Amy Cowan at (816) 842-3757 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: No "pending" entries or "applied for" entries will be accepted for the 2009 JNHE. If you took advantage of the early bird entry deadline and entered cattle with pending registrations or heifers that had not been transferred, your breeder accounts will be charged the additional entry fee. If cattle are not registered or transferred by the May 20 deadline they will not be allowed to show at JNHE. Thank you for your cooperation.
New this year, the concession stand will be serving blue plate breakfast and lunch specials all week during the JNHE, therefore the only meal ticket that will be sold prior to JNHE is the awards banquet ticket. The breakfast special is $5 and the lunch special is $7. The Expo Square food and beverage service has a list of the specials (PDF) that will be served throughout the week.
This year, JNHE participants must pay $5 to participate in showmanship. All showmanship contestants must pre-enter by May 20 and pay a $5 entry fee.
