GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The 2022 AIJCA National Show is being held at the Five Points Bank arena on Fonner Park’s campus this week, bringing competitors from 31 states to central Nebraska.

At the competition, students show off their heifers for prizes, as well as make new friends along the way.

”In the area of the barn that they’re stalled in, there may be somebody next to them or across the aisle that they didn’t know before they came here,” said Clint Rusk, the Executive Vice President of the AICA. “The event is set up so that it really caters to families and is very welcoming.”

There’s also other competitions like speech, team fitting and more.

The show runs until Friday, concluding with a heifer show at 8 am. The event is free for all to attend.
