Cattle Stall Assignments: Space is assigned to each county based on number of cattle nominated from that county compared to the total nominated. It varies from year to year, but might only be 2.5 feet per animal. We obviously know that isn't enough, but nominated cattle don't show up and many choose to utilize tents. We encourage you to cooperate with others from your county to best utilize the assigned space. If you need more space, contact the superintendent. Space might be available outside.
Only exhibitors will be allowed in the show rings and holding areas. Parents or other exhibitors will not be allowed to assist the exhibitors in the show rings or holding pens during judging time and shall remain completely outside show or holding pens.
