The Saskatchewan Junior Angus Association was officially formed in 1996 and works to educate and provide opportunities to Angus Juniors in Saskatchewan. We host 2 shows each year - one in the Summer, that rotates around the province, and one at Canadian Western Agribition in November. Marketing, Judging, Showmanship, Grooming, Peewee Classes, and conformation, plus much more are a part of the whole concept at these shows. Educational clinics and entertainment are planned and all events are run by the Juniors, including obtaining funding for hosting the events.

As we bring in 2018, its time for us juniors to start another exciting eventful year. Our final junior event to wind down 2017 was our annual meeting and fun afternoon at Agribition. At the annual meeting we updated the board positions and discussed upcoming events for juniors in 2018. At the meeting our scholarship recipients were announced - congratulations to Macy Liebreich and Brianna Kimmel. Both the recipients will be receiving $500 to go towards post secondary education. For our fun afternoon we had a lot of juniors in attendance and it was a great time playing games, doing a scavenger hunt and then enjoying pizza at the end sponsored by the Saskatchewan Junior Angus Association. Our annual fun afternoon is always a great turn out and allows the older members to help out our junior members.
Earlier in the fall we juniors had our annual Saskatchewan Junior Gold Show. The show was held in Lloydminster, SK for the third year in a row. There was an awesome turn out, many new juniors and previous juniors participated in the wide range of activities - Print marketing, Photography, Literature, Judging, Team Grooming, Showmanship and of course the conformation classes. I would like to thank all the judges, volunteers and sponsors that helped make the show a success, as well as congratulate all the juniors who did well and who came out and participated. We look forward to 2018’s show in Lloydminster as well.
The first event for the juniors of the New Year will be the 13th annual GOAL conference, this year it will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba. GOAL is always a great place to catch up with Angus friends, and create many new friendships with Angus juniors from all over the country as well as learn about our industry and ourselves. GOAL is a great experience and I look forward to seeing many familiar and new faces there. There are a number of Saskatchewan Juniors making the trip to GOAL, thanks in large part to the travel bursaries provided by Saskatchewan Angus Association.
After GOAL the next event on the list is 2018 Showdown, this year to be held in Barrie, Ontario. Showdown is always a fantastic time there are conformation classes along with many other competitions such as print marketing, photography, art, sales talk, public speaking and number more – you don’t need to have your own cattle there to be able to participate in a wide range of events. Showdown is a great place to see all your junior friends from across Canada and make many new friends. The Saskatchewan Junior Angus Association will be sponsoring three travel bursaries to Showdown valued at $750. The application for this will be a short essay explaining why you think you should get to go to Showdown and how you think it will benefit you. Make sure you apply for these travel bursaries as well as the national bursaries available by June 1.
I am very excited to be serving the Saskatchewan Junior Angus Association another year as the president, it is an exciting time in the Angus industry and I look forward to meeting more juniors and getting to know them better. If you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask.
Tyra Fox, President

Hi, my name is Carson Liebreich. I am 16 years old. I am from Radville, Saskatchewan where my family owns and operates Merit Cattle Company. We run a purebred Black Angus operation of 200 cows. I am currently a director on the Saskatchewan Junior Angus Board.
I got my start in the Angus industry when my parents gave me a calendar year heifer calf the year I was born. She produced to the age of 12. Since I was little I have been showing cattle. This is my tenth year of being a part of the Radville 4-H beef club.
I enjoy showing cattle and try and go to as many shows as possible including recent Showdown’s in Weyburn, Saskatchewan; Virden, Manitoba; Olds, Alberta; and Lloydminster, Saskatchewan in 2017. I have also been very fortunate to attend recent GOAL conferences in Ottawa, Ontario; Edmonton, Alberta; and will be attending the 2018 conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Growing up in the cattle industry has been a great influence in my life and being able to attend all the shows and other events has helped me to grow as a individual and I look forward to what is coming in the future.

I do like to work with my hands and fix in my pass time as well.
My plans after school is to go back and continue farming at Crescent Creek Angus and expand it in the coming years.

I have been president of my local 4-H club and have been in leadership roles on my sports teams. I love what SJA and CJA are doing for the youth of our industry and I wanted to be a part of that!
