Piper Cates earns Junior Bronze Award

Piper Cates is also one of our Junior Princesses for the association! Congratulations, Piper!


Piper Cates, Modoc, Ind., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze award, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.


Cates is the 9-year-old daughter of Tyler and Cortney Cates and attends Hagerstown Elementary School. She is a member of the NJAA and the Indiana Junior Angus Association, where she has served as director and royalty.


She has participated in state, regional and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Cates participated in the photography contest and the All-American Certified Angus Beef® Cook-Off.


Cates has submitted DNA Data samples for Genomic Profile Testing through Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI).


The Bronze award is the first level of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the award, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honor. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.


      The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 4,500 active members nationwide.
