Supporting the Next Generation: the 2016 NILE Jr. Fed Sale of Champions


Billings, MT–The NILE asks businesses and individuals to attend the 2016 Jr. Fed Sale of Champions Tuesday, October 18 at 5 p.m. to support the next generation of agriculturalists. Many of the kids use their earned funds for next year's projects and college education.

It's no secret the future of farming and ranching is uncertain with markets, population growth, and numerous other variables. However, one thing for certain is the future of agriculture is encouraging youth to get in and stay in the industry. 
Each year NILE strives to promote today's youth through many events and activities–one of the largest is the Junior Fed Market Shows. 
In 2015, over 250 steers, lambs, hogs, and goats entered their respective show vying for the top spots. This year entries have increased and more kids are choosing to bring their livestock to Billings. 

Open only to 4-H and FFA members, we offer the Junior Fed Market show along with Showmanship classes. Showmanship is broken into 3 divisions – Beginner (ages 8-10 yrs old), Junior (ages 11-13 yrs old), Senior (ages 14-18). Prizes are given to the winners of each division in each species.

Each exhibitor has the opportunity sell one animal at the Junior Fed Sale of Champions. Many of the exhibitors travel from surrounding states to be a part of the Billings community for the week of NILE. 

Thank you to all of our 2015 Junior Fed Buyers, we appreciate all that you do to help promote today's youth! We hope to see you at the
