Why participate in the TSA Elite Heifer Sale?
The Texas Shorthorn Association Elite Heifer Sale is a great way to market
livestock to the future of the Shorthorn breed by supporting youth exhibitors.
The heifers that sell are eligible to earn cash prizes for their cattle that show at
the Texas Shorthorn Association Elite Heifer Show during the TJSA Preview
Show and will get special recognition through the TSA. The TSA will work hard
to promote these cattle through all their outlets, including the TSA Newsletter,
social media, and email blasts. Our mission is to allow exhibitors to be
involved in purchasing high quality females from quality breeders in the Texas
Shorthorn Association and become involved in the one of the foundation cattle
breeds established in the US.
