Junior Futurity 2014

by Site Admin on April 10, 2014

The American Romney Breeders Association will sponsor a Romney ewe lamb and yearling ewe futurity for 2014 on a trial basis. Continuation for future years will be determined after evaluation of this year’s level of participation. The development of this Futurity is an effort to get junior members more interested and involved, as well as, having the consignors take an active interest in Romney promotion through our youth. The Futurity will make it beneficial for breeders to consign their very best animals to sales and motivate junior members to purchase high quality breeding stock.

See the full explanation of the futurity on the Juniors page or in the current edition of the Ramblings.

Following are the Futurity documents:
