State Carcass Group Contest
All rules for eligibility to participate in the NJAA Carcass Steer Show apply to the State Carcass Group Contest. A minimum of two and a maximum of three junior exhibitors from the same state can designate three steers to enter as a group. The groups can be entered at any time following the official carcass steer weigh-in, but must be designated prior to the cattle being shipped to the packing plant for harvest and data collection. Entries can be submitted by completing a State Carcass Group Contest entry form that lists the ear tag (entry) numbers of the three steers comprising the group. The entry form for this contest will be available at the check-in table for carcass steers at the NJAS. No entry fee, independent of that to participate in the individual carcass steer contest, will be assessed to those exhibitors designating cattle for the State Carcass Group Contest. No limit will be placed on the number of groups a state may enter. The Carcass Groups will be ranked using an adjusted group carcass index. Individual carcass index values will be averaged to determine a group index. The range between the low and the high individual indexes within the group will then be subtracted from the group index to determine the adjusted group index. The Carcass Group with the highest adjusted group index will be determined the winner. Points will be appropriately awarded to each state to count toward determining the sweepstakes winner. Awards and Premiums will be paid to the Champion ($100) and Reserve Champion ($75) State Carcass Group.

Miscellaneous Rules
Stall Assignments: All cattle at the National Junior Angus Show will be stalled by state. It is the responsibility of the state junior Angus association to coordinate the stalls for their state within the area assigned to them.
