Josh Langlois from Clare traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) to show his heifer calf in the National SimAngus Show. Josh is a member of the Supreme Showman 4-H Club, and has been involved with the beef project area for 13 years. Josh has also competed at many other steer shows in Michigan throughout his 4-H career. Josh placed 4th in his class. Congratulations! All your hard work and dedication to your beef project is paying off.
