The Kentucky Junior Cattlemen’s Association is involved in many activities throughout the year. These activities help all the members get involved in knowing each other and learning more about the beef industry.

KJCA Convention - January
At the beginning of each year, the KJCA Convention is held in conjunction with the KCA Convention. During this time, the KJCA holds its annual membership meeting to elect new officers and directors for each region. In addition, Junior members will be able to hear from industry speakers, attend an educational tour, and partake in a KJCA reception. The 2018 Convention will take place January 17-18 at the Owensboro Convention Center.

KJCA Leadership Camp - Summer
The KJCA Leadership Camp is a two day annual event that explores the different beef cattle industries in Kentucky. Junior members are introduced to a variety of professions by hearing from some of the top agriculture specialists in Kentucky and by touring several businesses. The camp is held at the KCA Office in Lexington and is a first come, first serve basis for up to 20 students. The next Leadership Camp will take place summer 2018.

KJCA Summer Field Day – Spring/Summer
Held in a central Kentucky location, the KJCA Field Day gives students an opportunity to see a well-managed farm in addition to becoming educated about the beef cattle industry and agriculture by using a hands-on approach. The date of the Field Day varies from Spring to Summer, so be sure to check back often for updates!

KJCA/KDA Fall Classic – October
Since 2004, the KJCA Fall Classic event has grown greatly and now offers judging, team fitting, sales talk, skillathon, showmanship, ad design, photography, and a breeding heifer and bull show. In 2012 KJCA teamed up with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to combine their fall shows and the partnership has been outstanding!
