American Junior Brahman Association members, youth up to 21 years of age, grow their passion for Brahman cattle and the ranching industry.

Today’s Juniors, Tomorrow’s Leaders

Established in 1980, AJBA currently has more than 900 members from across the United States. Junior members involved in AJBA gain valuable leadership skills and knowledge of the Brahman breed. 


The organization is led by AJBA-elected youth, who are elected each year during the All American National Junior Show. Each state is given seats based on their membership, and directors are elected within their state.


AJBA Junior Board members represent the organization to the best of their ability, provide assistance at AJBA and ABBA events, as well as serve as the voice of the AJBA membership.
