The Showbox was created in 1979 when the precursor of the TJLA was created. The first issue, which was a 4 page printed newsletter was published in March of 1979. For three years, The Showbox  was produced on the kitchen table of Billy and Cherie Rash’s home.

It is the oldest livestock show publication in the country and has been in continual existence for the past 38 years.

The Showbox is not a regional publication.  It is a National publication which covers livestock shows and state fairs held throughout the country.

Its editorial emphasis is junior exhibitors, but the publication publishes the results of the National Open Livestock Shows as well as news from America’s breed associations.
