Texas youth gathering at Lufkin Expo Center for Brahman show

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Kids from across Texas are converging on the George H. Henderson Jr. Expo Center gearing up for the Texas Junior Brahman Association (TJBA) state show.

133 youth, ages 8 to 18 and 333 head of cattle will participate in various events over the next 3 days including: public speaking, livestock judging, showmanship and sales talk.

Many of the kids got into showing Brahman as part of a family tradition.

Haley  Herzog, 17, from Robinson, TX said, "My parents showed Brahman cattle so it's just kind of run down in the family so it's kind of like a family tradition just every summer we come here."

TJBA president, Jacob Valenta, 18, from Alleyton, TX said, "Really it's just a chance for everyone in the state to come together put on a Brahman show and it's great for everyone that's a starting beginner to the most experienced showman just to come out and have fun."
