National Show Rules

National Show Guidelines

Any livestock show is for the purpose of rewarding exhibitors of those animals whose conformation is most desirable, and in the case of breeding stock, most likely to be valuable to breed improvement.

To assist in this purpose, the Market Development Committee of the Canadian Charolais Association has established a set of Show Guidelines. These guidelines are intended to ensure to the greatest possible degree that all animals presented for exhibition shall be in their natural conformation and structure without alteration or modification. Exhibitors are also required to fulfill all conditions established by any fair or show the animals are exhibited at, and further, to submit all exhibits to any examinations, inspections or tests deemed necessary by the exhibition’s rules and regulations.
