Dear Ag Agents and Ag Teachers – Greetings from the Georgia Junior Livestock Foundation! I wanted to remind everyone that the GJLF Showmanship Point Circuit entry forms must be post marked by May 1. Please forward this on to all of your livestock exhibitors. Everyone that participates will get a free T-shirt!
wishes to recognize youth exhibitors that have excelled in the show ring with
their showmanship skills and participation. Awards will be broken out into five
different species to include Beef, Swine, Dairy, Goat and Sheep. Within
each category, prizes will be awarded to the Top 5 in the Junior Division (8th
grade and below) and Senior (9th grade through 12th
grade) of the current school year. A minimum of 15 exhibitors must
compete in each age category of each specie for awards to be provided. If
the minimum number is not met, the two age divisions for each specie will be
combined. Showmanship points can be accumulated at any livestock show
(local, state or national) from April 1, 2016 through March 31, 2017. The
contest will be based on the exhibitors’ highest points from eight (8)
shows. An additional two (2) shows can be listed in case of a tie. Exhibitors
are responsible for keeping up with their own records and submitting them on
the GJLF Showmanship Point Circuit point sheet by May 1, 2017. No point
sheets will be accepted after this date. All point sheets must be
complete, accurate and must include a signature by the applicant and
parent/guardian. Any application that is not complete will be
disqualified. The GJLF will maintain a list of show results on their
website at www.gajrlivestockfoundation.
All information can be found on the GJLF website. For questions, please email this address. Thank you!
