2016 AJSA Classics
Colorado youth participated in the American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA) National Classic, with others competing at June regional contests.

The July 9-15 Junior National event drew more than 500 participants to Des Moines, IA. Kendal Reitzenstein placed 15th and 18th overall with her owned percentage heifers, plus she took 10th in showmanship.

David Smith placed in the top 5 with his owned percentage heifer, plus he placed 20th in senior showmanship.

New Colorado Junior Simmental member Michael Semler took 4th in Sales Talk and 11th in livestock judging, earning him an 17th overall in senior division points. He also exhibited a purebred Simmental heifer in the week-long contest.

Semler’s cousin, Keanna Smith, also had a fist full of ribbons. Her steer was 3rd overall in the Bred & Owned (home-raised) show and 15th overall in the Owned (purchased) market show. Her Bred & Owned percentage Simmental heifer placed 3rd in both shows.

In addition to the “Denim & Diamonds in Des Moines” Classic, youth collected pop tops for the Ronald McDonald House and held three regional contests.

McKellen Rains, a CJSA member who lives across the state line in Oakley, KS, competed at the AJSA South-Central Regional in Stillwater, OK. During the June 15-18 event, Rains showed two February-born Simmental heifers. He advanced from 1st and 2nd in his classes to 3rd and 4th in their respective Bred & Owned divisions. Rains’ May-born percentage Simmental heifer also was 3rd in her respective class

Keanna Smith puts final grooming touches on her percentage Simmental heifer at the American Junior Simmental National Classic in Iowa.
