Earlier this month, Alyssa provided us with a profile of her JBBA experiences:

     Hey ya'll! My name is Alyssa Robertson and I am from Sweeny Texas. I have been showing cattle since I was 7 1/2 years old and canít believe what Iíve achieved. Iím currently an upcoming Sophomore at Sweeny High where Iím a Varsity Cheerleader, Secretary of my FFA chapter, Secretary of my 4H club, A/B honor roll.  Iím very excited to be representing my school, family, breeders (Toby and Cherryl Forteí, (Wild Oaks Farms, Chris and Jayjay Jassen, Sam and Glenda Elledge, and Rosemary and Aj Gambieno) for this upcoming show year, and also myself.

     I am an active member of TCCA, TJLA, JBBA, TSGBA, AJBBA, and TJBBA. Looking back Iím still get excited about the highlights of my show experience. When I was 11, I swept surprised everyone at our Beefmaster National Show by winning Jr. Showmanship (Diamond) and Jr. All Around Champion, which was very exciting. In 2002, I took Grand Champion Sr. Heifer at the Ft. Worth Livestock show and also took Reserve Overall Beefmaster (Ginger Lee). Later that Year in April that same heifer won the JBBA Shreveport show. This past year in 2005, I won Reserve Jr. Female at San Antonio (Roz) and ended up 2nd out of 29 with my baby heifer Shirley who I got from the Forte's and Ozark Embryonics.

     Overall I have placed in the top ten for Beefmasters for the past 6 yrs., been in top three the past 3 yrs, top three in region for the past 6 yrs, and also in the top ten for showmanship the past 6 yrs. I think I have been pretty successful... don't you? Okay, so I haven't won everything but my time will come. I have achieved winning 20+ buckles, 5 trophies, and way to many ribbons for me to count.

     I guess the best things about showing are the friendships I have made and the time I share with my family. Also, the lessons I have learned. That's what really matters to me. I would like to take the time to thank my breeders, my friends, my mom and dad, Annette Robertson and David Robertson, and my brother, Buddy Robertson, for believing in me 100% and giving me this opportunity to learn what I am about.
