At ShowBloom, we understand the importance and value of Showmanship competitions and are proud to sponsor the showmanship series at Belt Buckle this summer in Texas.

Leading By Following

I remember the first time I saw them. I was 10 years old at the National Junior Angus Show. While it wasn’t my first time attending, it was my first time showing. My heifer that year was almost too tame and a little reluctant to move sometimes. While we were in class, a guy was suddenly behind me, helping to coax her along. He wore a green jacket. And no, he wasn’t a Master’s golf champion. The green jackets of the National Junior Angus Association board stand out. And for my junior show career in the NJAA, you could often …

For Granted

By Kathleen Schubert As I grow in my professional career and see high school kids doing the things I miss so much, like showing, it gets me thinking. When I was in their shoes I never thought twice about how many miles we were putting on the truck, or the cost of diesel to get us to a show four hours down the road. All I knew was that my parents were going to make sure we got there and that we had everything we needed to make sure we put our best feet (or I guess in this case, …
