Bastrop Area Livestock Show Steer Validation, Poultry Validation, and Heifer entries due September 4
Steer Validation, Poultry Validation, and Breeding Heifer entries for the Bastrop Area Livestock Show will be due September 4 at the Bastrop Show Barn from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Entry fees of $15 per head and COMPLETED entry forms with exhibitors and parent or legal guardian signatures must be submitted to stock show officials at validation.
Each exhibitor may validate three market animals in this division. A family with two or more exhibitors may validate two market animals per exhibitor in each division in a pool and cross validate. However, only one market animal per division can be shown by an exhibitor. All market animals must be presented for validation at the designated location and time.
If a market animal is validated for major shows, the major show validation tag will be accepted in lieu of hauling the animal to validation, but the exhibitor and a parent or designated representative must be present to pay entry fees and submit entry forms at validation. Major show tags will be verified with 4-H and FFA advisors. If animals are not validated for major shows, entry fees must be paid and the animal must be presented by the exhibitor at Bastrop Show validation to be ear tagged and tattooed by stock show officials.
Exhibitors and a parent or legal guardian must be present at validation day or exhibitor will not be allowed to validate or show the animal in the show. In the case of exhibitor participating in a UIL, college entrance exam, FFA or 4-H event, a parent or designated representative must be present to pay entry fees and turn in COMPLETED entry forms with exhibitors and parent or legal guardian signatures and Social Security Number on the entry form. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
