  • Exhibitors must continuously own and personally feed and care for their animal(s) throughout the entire feeding period. The feeding period begins with the species validation date through exhibition at all shows (exhibitors must provide continuous care for breeding heifers and sheep throughout the animal’s eligibility to show).

    By acknowledging this document, the exhibitor and parent/guardian, recognize his/her responsibilities for the feeding and care of livestock projects throughout the feeding period and hereby authorizes the State Validation Coordinator, supervising Agricultural Science Teacher /County Extension Agent and the “Species Specific County Level State Validation Committee” the right to inspect your livestock project(s) at any time during the feeding period with or without prior notice. Any exhibitor in violation of the feeding/care rule is subject to disqualification.

    Animals validated for major shows may also be exhibited at other shows. Be advised, however, that if any validated animal is exhibited and SOLD at any other show, the animal will be ineligible to show at any subsequent major show. If ownership changes, regardless of method or length of time, that chain of animal ownership is considered broken.

  • Payment for 2018 MAJOR SHOW validation tags must be received on or before Monday, August 21, 2017.

    Payment should be made to the Extension Activities Committee
