What does the
Canadian Junior Angus do?
Canadian Junior Angus (CJA) was established in 1999 as a junior organization to the Canadian Angus Association.
Juniors, who are 21 years of age and younger, participate in national events throughout the year that allow for opportunities to network, learn and grow. These events include Showdown, the national Junior show with events such as conformation and showmanship; and the Guiding Outstanding Angus Leaders Conference (GOAL), which encourages Juniors to become involved in and excited about the breed with interactive activities and motivational speakers.
Canadian Junior Angus also offers many different opportunities that Juniors can apply for through the Canadian Angus Foundation. The Foundation functions to preserve and expand the Angus breed for future generations through education, youth development, scientific and market research and historical preservation.
Members also get:
“Junior Connections” published to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening
Showdown – The Canadian Junior Angus Show – this show will move between regions and incorporate many activities beyond conformation and showmanship
GOAL Conference – annual conference that began in 2006 in Calgary. Its main function is to get more Junior Angus members involved and excited about the breed with fun and interactive activities and great motivational speakers
