The Canadian Junior Hereford Association (CJHA) President Samantha Rimke, Mar Herefords, met with UK Hereford Youth Co-ordinator Emma Smith and Society staff to discuss and share ideas on the Hereford Youth movement in both countries.
Samantha is being hosted by Emma during her whistle stop tour of southern England, which includes a number of herd visits and culminates in attending the National Poll Show on Saturday 2nd September at Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire.
Pictured right (from L to R) are David Prothero, Emma Smith, Samantha Rimke and James Sage.
The CJHA has a long and proven track record in developing Young Breeders having commenced over 35 years ago. Today the Association boasts over 500 young enthusiasts across the country. It’s governed by a 14 Member Council of delegates elected from their respective provincial Junior Associations (BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, and the Maritimes), seven adult advisors and an advisor from the Canadian Hereford Association.
Council Members form the CJHA Executive and Committees oversee the many educational and promotional projects, including their annual Bonanza show. The National Council meets twice per year, during the winter and at the time of the Bonanza Show. Involvement on the Council demands commitment, develops leadership skills and encourages cooperation between youngsters across the country.
In providing an insight in to how the CJHA operates, Samantha passed on invaluable information on how to organise National events, fund raising ideas and how the Canadian’s structure their Junior Association.
