Advisors: Please review the following information with your livestock exhibitors before they fill out entry forms:
- Members will register by breed division for registered or grade animals
- If a crossbreed, an entry must be shown in the commercial cross.
- If the animal is not registered in the exhibitors name, a copy of the SAE agreement must be attached.
- If the registration papers are not brought to onsite registration for verification, animals will be moved into commercial class.
- Registered and grade animals will be shown together, unless there are enough entries to divide into registered and grade classes.
- If registering by “other breed”, please indicate what breed.
