Abby Leachman Earns Junior Bronze and Silver Awards

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.

Winter Wheat Seedings Estimate Lowest in Over a Century

1/14/2018 6:42:00 PM
The report Friday showed 32.61 million acres planted. That was in fact down from last year, but more than 300,000 acres larger than the average trade guess and above all published trade guesses. This was the first time since 2012 for the USDA figure to be larger than the average trade estimate. It was only the second time since 2000, with the other being 2011. Futures had big fall rallies in both 2011 and 2012, which you might expect would result in a production response. This fall we were grinding lower. So what happened, and are there any implications? >> Read More
