General Rules

All animals entered in the Futurity Showback must have been purchased from the 2017 OYE Futurity Sale and have the OYE issued Futurity Sale tag. If the animal no longer has the Futurity Sale tag it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to contact the showback superintendent so the proper tag can be reissued.

Cattle without an OYE Futurity Sale tag will not be permitted to compete in the Futurity Showback.

Cattle purchased as an “alley trade” will not be permitted to compete in the Futurity Showback.

Futurity Showback cattle must be exhibited by an Oklahoma 4-H or FFA member who has had ownership of the animal since November 7, 2017.

Futurity Showback steers must be nominated via the mail-in, self-nomination process. The nomination deadline for steers is November 7, 2017. Please visit the OYE website www.okyouthexpo.com for further instructions.

Futurity Showback exhibitors must enter their steer(s) and heifer(s) online by February 17, 2018. Late entries will be assessed additional fees and will be accepted through February 24, 2018. Please visit the OYE website www.okyouthexpo.com for further instructions.

There is no additional entry fee required to compete in the Futurity Showback, however the animal(s) must have been included in the online entry process thus paying the $30 entry fee. All Futurity cattle must enter in the regular OYE breed shows.

An exhibitor can enter an infinite number of Futurity purchased animals in the OYE Futurity Showback, even if exhibitor has already entered the maximum of two heifers or three steers in the Heifer Show or Steer Show. However, an exhibitor is still limited to exhibiting only two heifers or three steers in the Heifer Show or Steer Show.

Amount of “fit” for the Futurity Showback can be determined by each exhibitor. Please refer to the OYE General Rules regarding “hair.”

Premium money will be mailed to exhibitors after the completion of the show.

Steers

Steer Futurity Showback entry cards will be included in the County/Chapter packets. An entry card will be provided for each animal.

The top two steers will be weighed upon exiting the ring with a 5% weigh back allowance on the official weight determined by the weight listed on the exhibitor’s weight card. Steers not within the 5% weigh back allowance will be disqualified.

So long as there are three (3) or more steers of the same breed check in, divisions will be broken by breed. All other cattle will be shown as an AOB.
