STEERS

POINTS:  BLUE - 75  RED - 55  WHITE - 35

Each exhibitor is permitted to enter three steers. Only dehorned or naturally polled steers will be eligible to show. Any steer having horns over two inches long from the skin at the base of the horn to the tip will be disqualified. There will be no breed classes for steers. If there are more than 15 entries, steers will be divided into two or more classes according to weight, by judgment of committee.

  1.  Each steer exhibitor must own his/her animal for 60 days before the exhibition and give them personal care and supervision from that date on.
  2.  Steers will be broken into two classes – feeder steers and slaughter steers, according to the discretion of the judge.
  3.  Slaughter steers must be under 2 years old. Steers will be classified into market grades and placed within the grade. Ribbons will be used to designate the grades as follows:

Choice & Select (yield grades 1 & 2) BLUE
Select (yield grades 3 & 4) RED
Good Grades WHITE
The latest revision to the grade standards will apply.
