2017 AHCA Rules for ROE Sanctioned Shows

 

AHCA Policy Statement Concerning Highland Breeding Cattle for the Show Ring

 

It is neither the desire nor the business of AHCA to act as a show ring policeman. It is however, within the scope of AHCA’s responsibilities to maintain the purity of the breed and by extension, act to ensure the preservation of those characteristics deemed unique to Highland cattle. This includes presenting breeding cattle to the public that do exhibit those unique breed characteristics. It is also within the scope of AHCA’s responsibilities to mediate and ensure ongoing contentment within its constituency.

 

 

1.          Exhibitors must be members in good standing of the American Highland Cattle Association or Canadian Highland Cattle Society.

2.          All animals must be owned by the exhibitor and breeding stock registered with the American Highland Cattle Association or Canadian Highland Cattle Society.

3.          Registration papers must be presented to show officials or AHCA representatives upon request.

4.          Tattoos must be legible and correspond to registration papers.

5.          Use of hormones or steroids in animals exhibited is prohibited.

6.          Breeding cattle may not be dehorned.

7.          A calf in the cow/calf class must be the cow’s natural calf, still nursing and a maximum of 250 days old.

8.          All bulls 12 months or older must be shown with a nose ring or nose lead. Note: We recommend that bulls be experienced with nose ring or nose lead prior to showing the animal.

9.          All ROE shows attended will be counted in the cow/calf division. In the case of a tie for the cow/calf division, the cow/calf that has defeated the most animals will be the winner.

10.       Registered and unregistered steers (both pure and crossbred) and registered Sovereign heifers, will be included for the number of animals in a point show.

11.       Only registered pure and crossbred steers and registered Sovereign heifers will count toward the Premier Breeder and Exhibitor awards at all ROE shows.
