Who can be a National Junior Member?
If you meet the following criteria, you can become a National Junior Member!
- A person who is 8 years of age and has not turned 22 by January 1st of the current year.
- A person who is the owner of a registered or I.E. Brown Swiss female in his or her individual name or junior partnership (RF, ID or IDR animals do not qualify).
- Complete and submit an application with the fee.
Junior Member Benefits
- Discounts in registering animals. Membership must be taken out in the name in which the junior registers his or her animals.
- Additional discounts for registering animals when you are both a state and national member.
- Junior members who apply for adult membership before reaching the age of 22 receive 1 transitional year of adult membership at a reduced fee.
- Eligibility for participation in National Junior Programs.
Associate Junior Member
An Associate membership is available for youth who own Brown Swiss but are not yet 8 years of age by January 1 of the current year. Associate membership provides reduced registration rates for these youth. That is the primary and only benefit of this membership. Applications are available on-line or from the national office.
To qualify the animal for national Junior Programs, animals must be registered in the junior member’s name or partnership comprised of only BSA Junior Members. (Adult-Junior and family farm partnerships are not acceptable.) In case of Junior partnership, one junior must be selected to exhibit or participate in Junior Programs. Awards will be presented as one unit, to all owners equally.
