The La Salle County Junior Livestock Show is held in conjunction with our annual county fair and officially kicks off with the weighing and sifting of the livestock entries at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 11, 2005.  The judging of the livestock entries starts that same Friday at 3:00 p.m.  The Junior Livestock Auction takes place on Saturday, March 12, 2005 at 2:00 p.m.

 General Rules
1.  Competition is open to all 4-H and FFA members in La Salle County.  These individuals must be in either grade school or high school to be eligible, and must have cared for and fed their animal during the entire feeding period.
2.  All animals must meet the regulations governing admission of livestock into shows set by the Texas Animal Health Commission.
3.  The Board of Directors of the 4-H and FFA Booster Club reserve the final and absolute right to interpret these rules and arbitrarily settle and determine all matters, questions, and differences in regard thereto, and the right to amend or add to these rules as its judgment may determine.  A protest, complaint or grievance of a violation of these rules shall be filed in writing to any member of the Booster Club board of directors prior to the judging of the show.  If the violation occurs after such time, the protest, complaint, or grievance shall be filed in writing with the Booster Club board of directors no later than five business days after the show.  Any such filing shall be accompanied by a $100.00 filing fee.
4.  A sifter and classifier appointed by the show will pass on all animals entered.  Animals not showing enough type, quality, and/or finish will not be allowed to show or sell, and the exhibitor will be asked to remove the animal from the grounds.
5.  No entry fee will be charged, but exhibitors must enter their animal with the 4-H or FFA advisors no later than two weeks after the validation of each animal species.
6.  All entries must be in their proper stall at the time set by the show and remain in place until they are released.
7.  All stalls, pens, and exhibitor spaces must be kept clean at all times and refuse matter disposed of as the show may direct.
8.  Exhibitors can show only two (2) animals of one (1) species, but cannot win both Champion and Reserve Champion.  If one animal wins Champion then the other animal of the exhibitor is not eligible to show for Reserve Champion.  This rule applies to market animals and not breeding animals.
9.  No other youth can show or sell another exhibitor's project.  Exceptions of sickness or death in the family can be made with approval of the Booster Club.
10.  The Supervisor of Projects - Agriculture Science Teacher or County Extension Agent - must certify that the exhibitor has completed requirements to show.
11.  All exhibitors failing the reporting period prior to the County Show will not be eligible to show or sell.
12.  All projects must be approved by County Extension Agent or Agriculture Science Teacher prior to validation or entry deadline.
13.  Exhibitors must own their animals at the beginning of and throughout the feeding period and must feed, care for, be fully responsible for and exhibit animals entered without any aid or assistance during the period except for County Extension Agent, Agriculture Science Teacher, or from other junior exhibitors, family members or project leaders in county.  This responsibility may not be transferred or assigned to any other person or place.
14.  No artificial color or alterations may be added to any animal for the show or sale.
15.  A dress code will be in effect for all exhibitors during the Junior Livestock Show and Sale.  All exhibitors are expected to be neat and clean at all times.  No shorts or T-shirts will be allowed.
16.  4-H and FFA members living in the same household and brothers or sisters who show the same animal species may validate the animals in each person's name.  The animals must be entered in a particular person's name with written notification to the Booster Club postmarked by February 15.
17.  Any exhibitor found in violation of any La Salle County Junior Livestock show rule shall be subject to permanent expulsion from the Junior Livestock Show and Auction and forfeiture of any proceeds or premiums.

3.  The sale order will be according to placing of the animals in the show.  The Grand Champion Steer will sell first followed by the Champion Goat, Hog, and Broilers.  The Reserve Champions will sell next in the same order.  Following the Reserve Champions will be all remaining steers, followed by goats, hogs, and broilers, as determined by placing in their classes.
