Subject: Ag Georgia Farm Credit Classic ‘Fall Prospect’ Steer and Heifer Show

September 6 & 7, 2013

Tift County Livestock Multipurpose Building

 

Enclosed you will find a copy of the rules and entry forms for the 2013 Ag Georgia Farm

Credit Classic “Fall Prospect” Steer and Heifer Show. This is the same show most of you remember as

the After Christmas Classic previously held in January. Again this year, Ag Georgia Farm Credit will

participate as one of our major show sponsors. The addition of this sponsor allows us to make the

show available to the following counties: Ben Hill, Berrien, Bleckley, Brooks, Colquitt, Cook,

Crisp, Dodge, Dooly, Echols, Houston, Irwin, Lanier, Laurens, Lowndes, Macon, Peach, Pulaski,

Taylor, Telfair, Tift, Turner, Wilcox, and Worth. The number of entries however will be limited to

the first 125 received due to the size limitations of the show facility.

This year’s show will be held September 6 & 7, 2013 in Tifton at the Tift County Multipurpose

Livestock Facility. All entries must be postmarked by August 29, 2013, and accompanied by a $25 per

head entry fee. Those entries postmarked after August 31st and arriving by September 5th will be

charged an entry fee of $35 per head. Check-in late entries will be accepted until 7:00pm on

Friday September 6th and the entry will be $40 if entered on check-in day. There will be no

refunds of entry fees.

All steers and heifers will be checked in and/or weighed between 5:00 and 7:00p.m on

Friday, September 6th . No entries will be checked in on Saturday morning. Shavings will be

provided for bedding. No other bedding will be allowed in the barn. There should be plenty of

electricity in the barn; however, you may bring generators if you wish.

 

If you have questions about the show you may contact T. Brian Tankersley (229/391-7980).

We look forward to seeing each of you September 6 & 7 in Tifton.

 

**Special Note: This is a prospect show that is early in the season. Please make sure all calves are

broke enough to come to a show. Our facility does not presently have a perimeter fence so all animals

need to be manageable. Thanks, Show Management

 

Sincerely,

T. Brian Tankersley
