The Oklahoma Limousin Breeders Association will award $500 to the Champion Limousin steer and $250 to the Reserve Champion Limousin steer if the breeder of the steer is a current OLBA member.

A completed and signed Breeder’s Verification Certificate is required to accompany the nomination form at the time of nomination.

Exhibitors must be a member of the Oklahoma Junior Limousin Association (OJLA).  Membership can be obtained at check-in.

Eligible heifers must have an original NALF registration certificate transferred in the exhibitor’s name no less than 60 days prior to date of show. Orange papered Heifers of 75% or higher (NALF) percentage Limousin and all Purple papered Heifers will be eligible to show.  Heifers with NXF registration certificates below 75% (NALF) percentage Limousin are not eligible to show.

OLBA has adopted rules 7. Bred & Owned and 8. Fitting, from the NALJA rules, for complete rules go to http://nalf.org/pdf/2015/2015%20NJLS%20Show%20Rules.pdf

7. Bred-and-Owned. To show in the bred-and-owned show, the female’s or bull’s tattoo must include the junior exhibitor’s herd prefix; and the female’s or bull’s dam must have been registered to the junior exhibitor at the time the dam was bred to produce the animal. Embryo-transfer (ET) calves are eligible for the bred-and-owned show; however, the donor female must have been registered to the junior exhibitor at the time she was flushed to produce the animal. The family’s prefix in the female’s or bull’s tattoo or family ownership of the dam at breeding does not qualify for the bred-and-owned show. No animals from partnership or lease agreement cows qualify. NALJA automatically enters eligible animals from the owned-female show in the bred-and-owned show. Juniors may sell no more than 50 percent ownership of a bred-and-owned bull and still be eligible to compete with him in the bred-and-owned bull show. The exhibitor must keep full possession of that bull until the regional and national shows conclude. All other bred-and-owned rules apply.
8. Fitting.
To maintain a high degree of confidence in Limousin junior shows, NALJA reserves the right to disqualify any animal for unethical fitting, which shall include the following: - Any use of paints, colored show foam, graphite, colored powders or other substances that may be subject to disqualification. All animals are subject to a “white towel” test from check-in to release. NALJA reserves the right to collect hair samples from any animal at any show. - The addition of any hair or hairlike substances, including false tail heads and false polls. (NALJA allows false tail switches.) - The cutting, tearing or gluing of the hide or underneath the hide or removal of tissue in an attempt to alter the animal’s shape. - The injection of any gas, solid or liquid under the hide to alter the animal’s conformation. - Any attempts to disrupt or change the animal’s normal dental development. - Any products, such as steroids or growth stimulants, administered internally or externally to alter the animal’s conformation. - Any stomach pumping without authorization from a licensed veterinarian.

OLBA reserves the right to collect hair samples from any animal.  Any person found misrepresenting OYE or OLBA rules and regulations will forfeit all premiums and show awards and maybe subject to disqualification.
