 It is no secret that youth involved in the Junior Braunvieh Association of America (JBAA) are passionate, driven and dedicated. These traits are exemplified in all who recently participated in the National Junior Braunvieh Show. Scholarships were awarded to two of these outstanding young adults at the show. The Braunvieh Junior Achievement Award is presented to a JBAA member in recognition of outstanding achievement. The award is designed to recognize individual and cooperative efforts, enthusiasm, excellence, leadership and achievement among youth who are active in the Braunvieh breed. This year, Hunter Prazak took home the honors and received a $500 scholarship.

Braunvieh Youth Highest Paid Group in Ft Worth

Did you see there will be $6,500 paid out at the Fort Worth Stock Show plus the $4,000 that will be paid to the Junior that Randy Allgood and his daughter Alexa raised . Here is the breakdown.

  • $3,000 to Youth show ( this is up from $1000 last year) 
  • $3,500 Open show ($1500 last year)

The Braunvieh youth exhibitors that place high enough to garner premiums will take home the largest per head premium of ANY other breed at Fort Worth. (open or junior show) This includes the Angus, the Longhorns as well as all breeds showing during junior week. Several other breeds have more total premium money but we are dividing $3000 premiums into 7 classes.
1st $145   2nd $100    3rd $78   4th $65    5th $40
So if a junior places 5th or higher they will get their entry fee back.

This does not include the additional money that Randy Allgood and Alexa Cordell's heart and legs raised for our juniors at Fort Worth. (An additional $4000 to the youth show)

Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!


Thank you Randy Allgood and Alexa Cordell

Randy and Alexa rode in a 100 bike  ride.   They pledged 1.00 a mile for every mile they rode for the TJBA  Juniors at Fort Worth. Lots of folks stepped up and pledged.  Raised $9,000.00 for Juniors 1/2 for 2020. Half for 2021. And 10% to Texas scholarship program.   Picture to follow!
