The 20th Annual Canadian Junior Angus show, called Showdown 2019, was held in the North Thompson Agriplex in Barriere, July 18 – 27.

The National event wrapped up with a super banquet at the Barriere Curling Rink on Saturday evening, and by Sunday afternoon the impressive Angus cattle and all the friendly young competitors and their families were headed home.
