NOTE: If the number of animals exhibited does not meet the required minimum, the show will remain a ROE sanctioned show at the same level for that year and one additional year. If the show fails to meet the required minimum for two consecutive years, the show’s status drops to the next level.

 

Example of super point show: Super point show falls below the minimum requirement of 50 head exhibited for 2017, the 2017 show will count as a super point show as will the 2018 show. If the 2018 show does not have 50 animals exhibited, then the 2019 show will drop to a regular point show. If in 2019 the show meets the 50 head minimum, it will be reinstated as a super point show in 2020.

 

Example of regular point show: Regular point show falls below the minimum requirement of 20 head exhibited for 2017, the 2017 show will count as a regular point show as will the 2018 show. If the 2018 show does not have 20 head exhibited, then the 2019 show will no longer qualify as a ROE sanctioned show. If in 2019 the show meets the 20 head minimum it will be reinstated as a regular point show for 2020.

2018 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 integrity of the breed and its breeders. This includes the promotion of the breed in an attractive public setting by both amateur and professional exhibitors, building camaraderie and participation among owners and enthusiasts, and encouraging the selection of highly productive cattle with attributes of the Highland breed. It is also within the scope of AHCA’s responsibilities to mediate and ensure the 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.          All shows will conform with IAFE show rules (see attached).

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

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

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

7.          Breeding cattle may not be dehorned.

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

9.          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.

10.       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.

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

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