Rules & Regulations

2018 MCLB / HONOR SHOW CHOW Show Lamb Circuit
GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS:

  • Even though the circuit is run by the MCLB organization, sheep do not have to be Missouri-born and raised or raised/sold by MCLB Members. There is one show exception to this rule- being the Kick Off MCLB Futurity Show at Chillicothe.
  • Any exhibitor age 21 and under as of January 1 of the current year is eligible to compete in the Series, and the series is open to residents of ANY state, not just Missouri.
  • Entry fees for the MCLB Show Lamb Circuit will be set at $30 per exhibitor. This allows the exhibitor eligibility for final awards in our market lamb, wether dam, WBI, AND showmanship divisions. This should be paid to a MCLB member along with the Declaration Form.
    • Please notice: This $30 fee is the exhibitor’s entry into the Series, not the individual shows themselves. Entry fees into the individual shows vary according to the individual shows’ rules and regulations.
  • Ownership of each lamb is established when the exhibitor signs up for the series on the Ownership Declaration Form. We must have your declaration form on file along with your $30 before we start to track your points. We prefer that you submit the form via email to sloan2005@hotmail.com. You can also bring the form to your first show.
    • To earn points at a show on a given day, the animal must be entered AND shown that day by the exhibitor that claimed ownership of that lamb on the declaration form. The ONLY exception to this is if the exhibitor has someone else show one of their declared lambs because they had two or more lambs in the same class. Sheep will be tracked by Scrapie tag numbers from the Declaration Form.
    • Individual sheep are also declared “Market” or “Wether Dam” or “WBI” on the Declaration Form and are only ELIGIBLE FOR AWARDS IN THAT DIVISION.
  • Prizes are solely dependent on available funding and sponsorships. Series awards will be given at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia on the Wednesday before the market lamb show in conjunction with the showmanship competition.

  • There is NO MINIMUM NUMBER OF SHOWS that an exhibitor has to show in to be eligible for Series Awards; however the TOP 6 shows of each exhibitor will be figured into their point totals.
  • The MCLB Show Lamb Circuit is not responsible for the management of sanctioned shows. All sanctioned events are run independently of the circuit. All exhibitors are expected to honor the rules of the show in which they are participating.
  • Shows invited to participate are required to submit $100 to the MCLB and sign a form agreeing to our rules and regulations set forth for the series. The show committee will have the final say in whether to sanction the show or not based on a number of factors.
  • All rules are subject to the discretion of the MCLB Show Lamb Circuit Committee and the Missouri Club Lamb Breeders Association and are subject to change.

Other Point Considerations… (applies to all 4 Divisions)
• POINT ACCUMULATION IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHAT IS TURNED IN ON THE DECLARATION FORM
• Tie breaks within each division will be decided by Total Points within each division from ALL SHOWS, then number of   Champions, then the number of reserves, the number of 1sts, then the number of 2nds, and so forth until the tie is broken.
• The TOP 6 scores an exhibitor receives in each division throughout the year will be used to calculate their year-end totals   and will decide final awards winners. Exhibitors don’t necessarily have to attend 6 shows to be eligible but it is highly   recommended.

 

 

 

FAQs
  1. Who can participate?
    -
    The Series is open to ANYONE from any state that is 21 years of age or younger as of January 1st of the current show year. The cost is $30/exhibitor. This does NOT include entry fees for each individual show.

  2. How many shows must you attend to be eligible
    -
    There is no minimum number of shows required; however each exhibitor’s total points will consist of their best six shows. Exhibitors don’t have to participate in 6, but are strongly encouraged to in order to be competitive towards the final points count.

  3. How many sheep must you bring to be eligible for market lamb points at each show?
    -
    Technically, the minimum number of sheep you have to bring would be 1. BUT, because exhibitors are awarded points for their top 2 points-earning lambs in the market lamb division, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you bring at least 2 sheep to each of the sanctioned shows to be competitive in the points series. The Wether dam division and the WBI division will take points on each exhibitor’s single highest point-earning sheep

  4. How are the shows structured?
    -
    All sanctioned shows will have a market lamb division (both wethers and ewes eligible), a wether dam division (young ewes and yearlings) a WBI (White-faced Breed Influenced) Division and a showmanship division that splits into juniors (13 and under) and seniors (14 and over). Sheep are shown by weight (except yearling ewes). Individual shows may have other classes and divisions (bred and owned, in-county, etc) but these classes are not part of the points series and don’t factor into the points.

  5. What sheep are eligible to compete in the series?
    -No weight limits exist (unless individual show rules state otherwise) and market lambs/WBIs must have their lamb teeth intact. Sheep do NOT have to be raised by MCLB members; they can come from any breeder. (with the exception of the Chillicothe Futurity Show) Sheep must have Scrapie Tags


  6. How do the points accumulate?
    -
    The market lamb points, WBI points and wether dam points accumulate with the EXHIBITOR, not the individual lamb. So in theory, an exhibitor could, if they wanted to, bring a different set of sheep out to every show and still win the overall market lamb points or the wether dam points or WBI Points. More details on the points system are discussed in the “Points” section of this document.

  7. Can lambs be double-entered under different siblings and family members or Market AND Breeding AND/OR WBI?
    -
    NO. One specific sheep can only accumulate points for one specific showman. IF a family wants to change up who shows the lamb from show to show, that is not against the rules and is considered ok as far as the regular show is concerned. BUT, the points earned on that day by that lamb do not count for the original “owner” of that lamb. The original “owner” of each lamb is designated by the family on the Ownership Declaration Form. Sheep must also be designated “market” or “wether dam” or “WBI” on this form and will earn points accordingly.
