The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association (NDSA) is now accepting entries for the 2023 North Dakota Junior Beef Expo (NDJBE), a multi-breed junior field day to be held June 23-24 at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds located in Minot, N.D. Celebrating 28 years, the NDJBE will feature breeding heifer, market steer and market heifer shows; showmanship contests; supreme champion selections; a silent auction; and networking opportunities. Youth will learn to compete, learn and develop friendships with others who are interested in the beef industry.
