Dear Cattlemen and Cattlewomen,
I hope everyone has had a great summer so far. It’s that time of year again, time for our state show. Our state show will be at the Wilson County Fair on Aug. 25th at 7:30 p.m. You need to be there at least 2-3 hours before this time to enter in. There are many other shows going on at the same time as the Wilson County Fair. However, for the junior members, this is a show the board has voted to pay premiums on. So, you won’t want to miss it.
Also, it’s time to think about new officers for 2019. If anyone would like to serve as an officer, please contact Mike Watkins or Mike Davis. We will have a board meeting at our state show at 4:30 p.m. in the “Q” building.
Tennessee was represented well at Junior Nationals this year. Please read below for the Junior National report from Katie Smith.
Attendees included: Eliza and Gracie Weiberg from east TN who showed one cow each, participated in showmanship, and quiz bowl. From west TN, William Thomas Maupin and Walynn Maupin who showed one cow each, participated in showmanship, basketball, quiz bowl, and team fitting contest. Katie Smith showed two cows, participated in showmanship, team fitting contest, and photo contest. Taylor Cantrell did not show, but participated in the fitting contest, photo contest, speaking contests, and quiz bowl. All juniors attended the mentor programs and all other scheduled events to learn and meet new people. Tennessee also won the herdsmanship award for keeping there are clean and neat throughout the week which couldn’t have been possible without the help of the help of the adults there. This included Mr. Ross, Dru & Leanne Smith, Barry Maupin, Cheyenne, Mrs. Turner, Stacy and Randy Weiberg. They also brought two juniors with them that did not show and were just there to help the girls.  They were John Rogers and Makenzye Stoots.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Wilson County Fair!

Mike Watkins
