Abby Leachman Earns Junior Bronze and Silver Awards

Abby Leachman, Toston, Mont., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze and Silver awards, according to Jaclyn Clark, education and events director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.

The 17-year-old daughter of Eric and Marlo Leachman attends Broadwater High School and is a member of the NJAA and the Montana Junior Angus Association, where she has served as director and reporter.



She has participated in state and regional shows and showmanship contests and is actively involved with her local 4-H club and FFA chapter.

Abby has submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR®) and consigned cattle in the Leachman Angus Ranch Sale.



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.



The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 6,000 active members nationwide.
