By The Numbers
This year's JBE was a huge success! With improved sponsorship opportunities and increased exhibitor enthusiasm, JBE 2018 set the bar to a new level for Alabama. The show saw 278 head exhibited by 154 youth from 37 counties competing for over $83,000 dollars in premiums and awards. More specifically, there were 204 heifers shown in 87 classes and 16 divisions while there were 74 market cattle shown in 31 classes and 11 divisions.
Showmanship remained very competitive with 145 exhibitors (94%) in 24 classes vying for three division champion and reserve titles. The Junior division had 60 showman in 10 classes, Intermediate had 43 at the halter in 7 classes and the Senior section had 42 leading out in 7 classes.
In total, we had more cattle exhibited by more youth in each of the market, heifer and showmanship shows this year compared to 2017.
