Reminders for exhibitors, parents and show managers for the remainder of the 2017-2018 show season: 

  1.  The issue of show ring assistance is not specifically addressed in AJCA Member Guidelines or AJCA Show Management Guidelines.  Assistance in the show ring by parents, siblings or other exhibitors is discouraged.  The exhibitor must be actively participating in the showing process (leading the animal, using a show stick). The AJCA State Director must approve any show ring assistance prior to the exhibitor entering the ring. This permission MUST be granted for each show, each weekend.  The State Director will notify the show manager of any exhibitors who are granted assistance.    

 2.  NO PARENTS are allowed in the ring.   The AJCA State Director must approve any situation that        would permit a parent to enter the ring. Permission MUST be granted for each show, each                    weekend.  The State Director will notify the show manager. 

*Statements #1 & #2 will be re-examined at the end of the show season.  A more definitive ruling may be put into place for next year’s show season. Please contact AJCA Board members to voice your opinions on this and other guidelines or rules pertaining to shows or awards before July 1, 2018.

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!
