Exhibition Requirements

Good grooming. Top genetics. Hard work. A lot goes into a champion. But some exhibitors lose sight of one essential factor: Healthy stock. Judges can recognize signs of common ailments, and, as a producer, you should, too. This sheet highlights some of the most common livestock diseases that surface in the show ring. By working with a veterinarian, then showing only healthy animals, you can prevent the spread of disease, protect your investment, and show like a champion.
