Jr. Fed Market Shows

Jr. Fed Market Shows are only open to youth ages 8-18 as of January 1 of the given year. Please note that Jr. Fed exhibitors must be an FFA or 4-H member.

Every year NILE strives to promote today’s youth through various events and activities; one of the largest being the Jr. Fed Market Shows. In 2022, over 400 steers, lambs, hogs, and goats entered their respective show vying for champion banners!

Each year Jr. Fed Market Shows as well as Showmanship classes are offered. We currently do not offer breeding divisions as part of the Jr. Fed Market Shows. Showmanship is divided into three divisions: Beginner (ages 8-10), Junior (ages 11-14), and Senior (ages 15-18). Awards are given to the winners of each division in each species.

All exhibitors have the opportunity to sell one animal in the Jr. Fed Sale of Champions. Thank you to all of our 2022 Jr. Fed buyers, we appreciate all that you do to help promote and support today’s youth!
