Showmanship Finals

The Big Dance.

I wanted to share two final videos with you from the National Junior Angus Show. This time the showmanship finals. This contest really showcases the most elite showman from across the country. How does it work?

Well, showmanship is your ability to show your animal. It is important to have your animal presented to the judge appropriately at all times, so your animals strengthens can be showcased and the flaws can be minimized.

What makes this showmanship contest unique is that you first have to qualify through your state, and you only ever get one shot to compete in the National Junior Angus Showmanship Competition. There are two rounds, first the preliminaries were approximately 40 juniors compete, it is then narrow down to a Top 15, and they compete in a second go round. From their a Top Five is selected.

Below are the two videos from the show. You might not understand why I have such a passion for showing cattle, but I think these videos might give you a small glimpse.


  1. I don't know much about showing cattle, but I really enjoyed watching these!
