UPDATES TO MEMBER & SHOW MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES:

  • Registered heifers and bulls holding dual breed association papers (those that can be registered in multiple breeds) must declare a breed at their first AJCA show and remain in that breed for the duration of the animals show life. 
  • Once a heifer calves, she is no longer eligible to participate in AJCA sanctioned shows even if she meets the age requirements of 6 months to 2 years. 

The BILL DOROUGH MEMORIAL SHOW – to honor AJCA friend and longtime supporter, the second ring at the annual Thanksgiving Classic is now called “The Bill Dorough Memorial Show”.  This past November over $4,000 was raised for the BEEF BRIGADE.  Thank you to all participants.   This cause was very important to Mr. Bill.  During the Beef Brigade Bonanza Cattle Show held recently, an additional $700 was raised for Arkansas youth!
