OUR MISSION

To promote and support young leaders in the agricultural livestock community, who actively and positively influence their peers, their associations, and their local communities.

2021-2022 NRS Show Team

The purpose of the NRS Show Team is to create brand advocates for NRS and its involvement in the Livestock Show Industry by investing in young showmen of various disciplines. NRS wishes to support livestock show youth through educational opportunities, scholarship opportunities, connection to leaders in the Livestock Industry and Academia, and provision of supplies for their projects and thus strengthen the Industry of which it is so excited to be a part. It is the hope of everyone at NRS that this will create opportunities for young showmen that they otherwise would not have had.

I am currently serving as the Secretary for the Premier Affiliate of the NJSGA and hold a Director position on the National Junior Santa Gertrudis Association Board. I am also actively involved in Decatur FFA and the Wise County 4-H, where I enjoy participating in many activities including Vet Science, Ag Advocacy, and Vet Science Skill -A- Thon. Throughout my time in the FFA, I have learned countless amounts of information about leadership skills, ag mechanics, horticulture, and the livestock industry. FFA has taught me how to work hard to accomplish my goals. Recently, I was able to cross a big one off my list and become a 2021-2022 Chapter Officer. I am also honored to serve as a 2021 Texas FFA Foundation Ambassador. FFA is such an amazing program filled with so much love for all things agriculture and I am so thankful to be a-part of this life-changing organization. Outside of showing my animals, my favorite memories of being an “ag kid” include catching at the Fort Worth (FWSSR) and the San Angelo Stock Show calf scrambles and winning a $10,000 scholarship from my calf scramble project at FWSSR. While those were fun, the best part is building relationships, making life-long friends, and spending time with my family. In the future, I plan to become a large animal veterinarian and mentor kids like me. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to advocate for the livestock industry while being on the 2021-2022 NRS Show Team!

Since my journey began, I have been able to meet and compete against some of the best in the industry. Currently, I show and raise Maine-Anjou and Chianina cattle. I am also actively involved in Paradise FFA and 4-H, where I participate in Livestock Judging, compete in Ag Issues, Radio Broadcasting, and Consumer Decision Making.

I am also very blessed to be the 2021-2022 Texas Junior Maine-Anjou Queen. Of all of the incredible things I have learned, the most significant of these is to give back on a higher level. One way I do this is by being a part of a non-profit organization called Concerns of Police Survivors. This organization has helped my family and me through some of the most challenging times in our life. Now, we can help new families in several ways through the Wes Hardy Foundation while fundraising through the agricultural community. Every day, I reap the blessing and benefit of combining two worlds that mean so much to my family and me. I am so excited to be a part and represent the NRS Show Team.

Makayla Luckie

Hello, my name is Makayla Luckie, and I am from Alvarado Texas. This year as a Senior 2022, I will complete my high school and junior show career. As an active member of both my local 4-H and FFA chapters I represent the agricultural industry and my community on several different platforms. Showing cattle has been my passion over the last nine years and we successfully operate a small operation in Johnson County raising registered Hereford and Polled Hereford cattle. I have been honored to represent our breed as a Sr Director for the TX Hereford Association and exhibit outstanding cattle across the US and obtain numerous awards for exhibiting those top cattle! With six heifers and steers in the barn for my senior year I am excited to see what the future holds. I am grateful to be a returning member of the NRS Show Team and represent the sponsors daily in our show lives.

My sheep operation consists of breeding hampshire club lambs, dorper sheep, and livestock guard dogs.

Highlights of my show career include breeding the champion market lamb at the Palo Pinto County Livestock Show, exhibiting the Reserve Champion Shorthorn Heifer at San Antonio two years running, and making the finals several times at the American Royal Livestock Show heifer showmanship contest. I am passionate about the livestock industry and leadership opportunities given to youth involved in agriculture and strive to live out the FFA Motto in my daily decisions.

While I have two years left of showing in high school, I plan to remain involved in the beef industry and hope to help other young people have a successful show career with cattle my family raises long after my show career. I am also involved in meat judging through 4-H and FFA where our team won state this spring! I plan to continue my education following high school, but I am undecided what my major will be and what college I will attend.
