The American Junior Shorthorn Association (AJSA) is proud to announce the recent membership of Joshua B. Schmidt and Amanda Schmidt, both of Alexandria.

“The AJSA is a great organization for youth in the livestock industry to be involved with, giving them an opportunity to gain knowledge and leadership skills, while having fun and making friends across the country,” said Julie Blunier, director of junior activities for the American Shorthorn Association (ASA).

The mission of the ASA is to contribute to the profitability and quality of life of its members and their customers by maintaining, protecting the vulnerability and enhancing the value of the herd book and performance database for shorthorn cattle.

The ASA is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and was founded in 1872 with herd book records going back to 1822. As one of the oldest American breed associations, the ASA provides services for more than 6,000 junior and senior members who register nearly 18,000 cattle annually.
