2018 Sanctioned Shows

Note: Health papers are only valid for one location.

Exhibitors will need to have separate health papers written for each show location, regardless of the shows being within 30 days of each other.

IJBBA SHOW HEALTH REQUIREMENTS

  1. Cattle should be inspected within 30 days of the show.
  2. All Junior cattle must be listed on a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection listing Official Individual Identification to be presented at check-in. Electronic CVI’s are acceptable. Multiple calves from the same farm or family may be listed on the same CVI. Official Individual Identification tags are required. Official identification consists of one of the following: USDA Brucellosis tags (orange), USDA metal tags (silver), 840 series RFID or 840 non-RFID tags and must be listed on the CVI. Listing breed registration names & numbers and tattoos are optional but are NOT sufficient identification by themselves. Other tags following the National Uniform Eartagging System (NUES) criteria of a 9 character format (2 digit state code, 3 alpha, and 4 digits) and displaying the US shield are also official identification.
  3. No testing is required.

RINGWORM

  1. Any evidence of warts, ringworm, pinkeye, draining abscesses or any other contagious disease will eliminate the cattle from the grounds.
