Colorado Junior Angus

The National Junior Angus Association provides leadership opportunities for the youth of all states through Raising the Bar and Lead Conferences. This year's Raising the Bar theme was Tear it up with the Tigers held in South Carolina on March 30-April 2, 2023. The conference was very beneficial for kids to develop relationships with other NJAA youth from across the United States along with being able to tour agriculture operations in that area. This is the 3rd RTB Kyli has attended, 2nd for Ty and !st for Mataya.

We appreciate the offer for the CAA to cover some of the costs for the kids to attend and represent Colorado. Kyli, Tyler and Mataya all attended this year. The cost for the conference was $100 and flights were $743.00 each. Total cost was $2529.00.

Kyli Kraft is also the CJAA queen for 2022 and 2023. She has represented Colorado Angus at the National Western Stock Show, Northern International Livestock Expo, Colorado Breed Bash, Western Regional Angus Futurity and the National Junior Angus Show. Your support in 2021-2022 for her CJAA Queen was greatly appreciated and we are asking for your sponsorship for her 2022-23 commitment.

Because of the impact the NJAA & CJAA have had on Kyli she will be running for a national office at the National Junior Angus Show in Grand Island, Nebraska in July. She is very passionate about the program and is looking forward to being able to have the opportunity to give back to the association.

Thank you for your support,
