- Definition of an entry for the purposes of the 2018 cattle classification – an entry shall be interpreted as follows: All purebred registered cattle, whether owned by one person or by more than one person (individually or jointly), are considered to be the production of the farm or breeding unit on which they are maintained.
Definition of a “Breeding Unit” is as follows: In each classification where the same or common interests are involved in more than one breeding operation, such operations are considered one breeding unit. In all cases where there is any doubt that more than one breeding unit exists, the interpretation shall be that only one breeding unit exists. The responsibility of proof of separation of breeding units shall rest with the exhibitor.
- There are restrictions to three entries per class per breeding unit. The maximum total eligible exhibits from a breeding unit is increased from 10 to 12 head to allow 4-H calves to be shown by 4-H members in open classes. In Breeder’s Herd, Get of Sire Class and Progeny of Dam one entry per breeding unit is allowed. Each breed must be shown separately and have at least three exhibitors and twenty-four animals per breed. If there are less than 24 head exhibited in a breed, 50% of the prize money will be paid. In the event there are less than the required numbers, one years grace will be allowed for the breed to rectify the numbers.
NOTE: For the purposes of the classifications, an exhibit shall be interpreted as follows: an exhibit is a unit of livestock qualifying for an entry into a class as specified in the classifications. Cow-calf classes are considered to be one exhibit. Please include calf information on the entry form for cow/calf entries in class 7 and 8.
- An entry fee of 15% of the prize money will be charged for each entry and will be deducted from the prize money. HST will be charged on the entry fee.
