February 13, 2012
Kaitlin Geyer, Lisbon, ND, has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze and Silver awards, according to Robin Ruff, junior activities director of the American Angus Association in Saint Joseph, MO.
The 12-year-old daughter of Wylie and Sherry Geyer attends Lisbon Middle School and is a member of the NJAA and the North Dakota Junior Angus Association.
She has participated in local, state, and national shows and showmanship competitions. Kaitlin belongs to her local 4-H club and is active in her county livestock judging team.
The Bronze and Silver awards are the first two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of Junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.
