Cow Camp is cancelled for 2020
We hope to resume our normal camp schedule in 2021.



Missouri Juniors are seeking someone who is interested in donating a raffle calf for the benefit of the Missouri Holstein Juniors. If you are interested or have questions please contact Katie or Shannon.


2020 Southwest Show Schedule

This is a very unusual year as so many of our local fairs and shows have been cancelled due to the fallout of COVID-19. Since events are changing at an alarming rate, we've included the latest information below and who to contact for more information. If anyone would like to add their own fairs to the list please let Jodi know and they will be added. At this time the Missouri State Fair and Ozark Empire Fair are still scheduled to occur. Remember entry deadlines for both.

  1. Jr. All-Missouri Points:  Juniors voted to continue the point system. The points are as follows:
    District Show — 16
    State Fair — 20 points
    First junior animal exhibited by a junior in each open class receives full points, with following places decreasing by 2 points each.  Again awards will be given per child instead of per class, and one award will be presented for partnership animals.
  2. Jr. Membership Fees due March 15: Membership form on main page to print or in Pulsator newsletter. It is important for juniors also to get their state dues paid on time, with the correct address, phone number and email address. This is the information we utilize to contact you throughout the year regarding awards, programs, activities, etc. We do not want you to miss out on an event because we did not have your accurate information. State membership fees are due by March 15. If your household only has junior members (no adult membership) then you might want to consider adding a Mid-States Magazine subscription for $5. A great way to stay connected.
