Junior Beef Roundup Information (Former Beef Expo and Commonwealth Classic)

The 2015 Junior Beef Roundup (last year’s Commonwealth Classic) will be held in conjunction with the Virginia Beef Expo at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, VA. The Junior Beef Roundup will be the traditional 3rd weekend in April, April 17 – 19, 2015. We have a full weekend of activities planned. In addition to the steer and heifer shows (Sat-Sunday), the weekend will include a youth Cattle Fitting Contest and a Sales Contest (both Saturday), along with the Beef Ambassador Contest (Saturday), State Stockmans Contest (Friday) and State Cattle Working Contest (Saturday).

All of the information for the 2015 Junior Beef Roundup can be found on the youth livestock web site. The site includes all contests’ rules/regulations, entry forms/fees, and how to enter. Entry deadlines vary based on the contest, so please be sure to read the rules for each contest carefully.
