2015-2016 ALJA BOARD
Courteney Walker (President)
Hey everyone! My name is Courteney Walker and I currently rein as the 2015-2016 ALJA President. I am 18 years old and will be a freshman at Clarendon College where I will be majoring in Animal Science. I will also be judging meats and livestock for Clarendon for the next two years. While in high school I was involved in many organizations such as 4-H, FFA, Assisteens, and volleyball. I have been around cattle my whole entire life! My very first stock show was at National Western Stock Show at two months old. My family has raised many breeds of cattle including Maine Anjous, Simmentals, Lowlines, and crosses on our Farm in Roswell, NM. We started to raise and show Lowlines my freshman year of high school. My very first year of owning Lowlines, I was elected onto the American Lowline Junior Association with a four year term. Along with showing cattle I have also shown goats, pigs, sheep, and dairy heifers. I hope to make this one year another great one!

Hello I am Maggie Isgren I am 18 years old and originally from Houston, Texas but I am now a freshman at Mississippi State University. I am currently studying animal and dairy science to hopefully become a large animal vet. I started showing my freshman year with a market goat for my school district show, then I began showing Red Brangus cattle my sophomore year. All of high school I raised goats for my school district show as well as my county show. At the end of my junior year in high school I got my first Lowline heifer and fell in love with the breed. I wanted to be more involved so this year I ran for the board and was elected as the Secretary. I am so excited to serve this year and cannot wait to see what this year holds for our organization.

My family lives on a farm and ranch in Strasburg, Colorado which has been in the family for four generations. We have be active in showing Cross Bred cattle for forty one years. Eight years ago we began to use Lowlines on our first calf heifers, and that is when we began to show Lowlines along with our cross breed cattle. I will be senior at Byers High School where I am an active member in FFA and serve as the Vice President of my chapter. My current plans are to continue my education at LCCC college in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I plan on studying Farm and Ranch Management. I hope to see everyone at up coming shows.

Logan Litchfield (Director)
My name is Logan Litchfield. I am 15 years old and I live on a small farm in Boone, Iowa. Even though I live in Boone, I actually go to school in a small town called Gilbert that is 15 miles to the east of Boone, where I play football, basketball, and run track. My dad and I have been in the cattle business for 7 years now. It all started when I asked my dad if we could get cows when I was 8 years old. Luckily, he said yes. We have only ever raised and shown Lowlines, but have been kept busy and have had lots of fun while meeting new people.
2015-2016 ALJA ROYALTY
My name is Brooke Hanlon. I’m 20 years old, and I am your 2015-2016 American Lowline Queen. It is nothing short of a blessing! I want to tell you a little about myself. I am currently attending Northeastern Junior College in Sterling Colorado and in December 2015 I will graduate with my Associates Degree. Next I will attend Adams State University in Alamosa Colorado, studying Elementary Education. I adore children! I grew up on a working farm and ranch in Strasburg Colorado where my family and I raise and show club calves as well as commercial cattle. We have been involved with Lowlines for about five years now. Having fun and playing around with some breeding, it now seems that no matter what show my brother and I haul to we always take a few Lowline cattle with us. Along with my passion for showing and cattle I show horses and rodeo, I’m also and independent beauty consultant for Mary Kay. I hope to meet and see you all real soon. Best regards Brooke Hanlon
