Added Premiums at Houston and San Antonio
For the 2014 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Barrow Show, the American Berkshire Association (ABA) will award $100 in premiums to the highest placing Berkshire market barrows in each Berkshire weight class. In order to be eligible, Berkshire exhibitors MUST possess the ABA Certificate of Registry showing ownership by the exhibitor.

1. Non-placing barrows are not eligible for the additional premiums. The Certificate of Registry must be transferred to the new owner (date of sale, name and address must be printed on the bottom right side of the pedigree). Completing the back of the pedigree is not sufficient.
2. The exhibitor must present the ABA Certificate of Registry when requested by the individual representing ABA at the show. An information form must be completed and signed by the exhibitor or representative of the exhibitor before a premium can be mailed.
3. A designated representative of the ABA will be present at each show in order to verify the qualifications of each barrow and collect certificates.
4. The ABA reserves the right to collect a DNA sample on these animals. Premiums may be held until sire verification is complete.
