The family that shows together, grows together.
The Utah Junior Livestock Association is dedicated to helping youth in Utah 4-H and FFA programs promote and gain mastery in animal project areas. With several state association shows, youth can go beyond their county borders and build life long friendships, develop valuable life skills, and immerse themselves in animal agriculture.
Exhibitors are encouraged to participate in the complete educational opportunity that junior livestock shows provide, such as the rate of gain, carcass, fitting and showing, record book, and livestock judging contests along with the judging of market and breeding animals. It is the purpose of these projects to develop life skills and animal husbandry and marketing skills among the participants.

JUDGING, PREMIUMS & TROPHIES:
Our animal judging is done by local and national certified ARBA, Chicken, and Pigeon Association Judges that we randomly choose from the judge listings every year. We allow the judges to place winning animals in any form they would like and place awards and trophies only to those they choose. (Judging will be Thursday August 3rd, no exhibitors or spectators will be allowed in the area during judging). All animals will be judged in a group setting: Rabbits, Pigeons, Chickens, Roosters. Premiums will be awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places. Trophies will be given for Grand Champion, Reserve Champion, and Best of Show.
Exhibitors will be responsible to care for the needs of their animal daily: food and water and bedding if needed (or make arrangements with the supervisor). Cages are to be kept clean. Each exhibitor will need to bring their own cages.
Show management is not responsible for any damage, accident or death of any animal while it is at the show. Sick animals will not be accepted. The supervisor, or their assistant, will be the judge as to what constitutes a sick animal.
Any healthy animals taken before the check-out time will forfeit any prize money, trophy or award that might have been given.
No healthy animals are to be removed from the exhibit without the permission of the supervisor. All animals on exhibit will be inspected daily by a competent person.
