committees or claimed by exhibitors, when such award or claim

premiums, not the placement of ribbons.
Courteous and orderly conduct is expected from the exhibitors,

THE PUREBRED DAIRY CATTLE ASSOCIATION
SHOW RING CODE OF ETHICS
Adopted April 3, 2004
The showing of registered dairy cattle stimulates and sustains interest
in the breeding of registered dairy cattle. It is also an important part of the
promotion, merchandising and breeding program of many breeders. For
these reasons, the Purebred Dairy Cattle Association (PDCA) believes
that it is in the best interest of all breeders of registered dairy cattle to
maintain a reputation of integrity in dairy cattle shows and to present a
wholesome and progressive image of dairy cattle in the show ring.
PDCA endorses this Show Ring Code of Ethics for all dairy breed
shows and pledges its full cooperative support for its enforcement to
show management,show judges,and the national breed associations.
The application of this Code of Ethics provides for absolute
responsibility for an animal’s condition by an owner,exhibitor,fitter or
participant whether or not he or she was actually instrumental in or had
actual knowledge of the treatment of the animal in contravention of this
Code of Ethics. Dairy cattle exhibitors shall,at all times,deport themselves
with honesty and good sportsmanship.
It is recognized that there are certain practices in the proper care and
management of dairy cattle that are necessary in the course of moving
dairy cattle to and between shows that are advisable to keep them in a
sound, healthy state so they might be presented in the show ring in a
natural, normal condition. At all times,exhibition livestock shall be treated
in a humane manner and in accordance with dairy quality assurance
practices so as to protect the health, safety and welfare of the livestock
and the consuming public. No person shall present for exhibition or
exhibit an animal which he or she knows,or has reason to suspect,
is affected with or has been exposed to a dangerously contagious or
infectious disease,or illegal or non-approved use of drugs,medication
and/or prohibited substance,or residue.
The position of the Purebred Dairy Cattle Association is that all
animals presented for exhibition shall be in their natural conformation
and structure,free of any alteration or modification by injection or internal
or external administration of any substance or by any involvement in
unethical fitting.

GROOMING AND PREPARATION
Dairy cattle exhibitions are conducted under standards for evaluating
conformation established by the PDCA Unified Score Card (1994), with
specific breed characteristics taken into consideration by the show judge.
In this connection, animals will be groomed and prepared for the judge’s
evaluation in order to display the animal’s natural contour, conformation,
performance and mobility. Specifically:
1. External applications of cosmetics that affect only appearance may
by used, including by way of example hoof polishes and false switches.
2. The maximum allowable length of naturally growing hair anywhere
on the top line is not to exceed 1”. Exhibitors will be required to comply
with this rule before the animal is allowed to enter the ring.
3. Addition of foreign objects,including but not limited to hair or hair
substitutes, cloth or fiber,to change the natural contour or appearance of
the animal’s body is prohibited.
4. Externally sealing the teat end with a preparation that does not
harm the animal’s skin is permissible. Natural teat placement will be
given preference over artificially positioned teats.
VIOLATIONS: FALSE, DECEPTIVE OR UNACCEPTABLE PRACTICES
These practices are violations of the Code of Ethics and will be
reported to show management and may be reported to the respective
national breed associations:
1. Misrepresenting the age and/or milking status of the animal for the
class in which it is shown.
2. Treating the animal, particularly the udder, internally or externally:
(a) with an irritant or counter-irritant
(b) using a device to artificially create or enhance the udder
crease,
(c) using other substances as detected by testing that causes
changes in the udder to artificially improve the conformation.
(d) plugging of teat canal with foreign substances.
3. Surgical or unethical insertion of any matter under the skin or into
body cavities, performed to change the natural contour or appearance
of the animal’s body (e.g., administration of fluid via a stomach tube or
other similar apparatus to fill the rumen),though not to preclude practices
40
required or involved in normal management.
4. Criticizing or interfering with the judge, show management or other
exhibitors while in the show ring or their conduct detrimental to the breed
or the show.
5. Challenging, threatening or interfering with an ethics committee
appointed by show management to monitor the animals on exhibit on the
show grounds.

An integral part of the program of vocational education in agriculture

cooperatively; to solve their own problems; to finance themselves, and
to assume civic responsibility.
Today, the F.F.A. is the largest agricultural youth organization in the
world, with over 500,000 members. In Ohio over 25,000 young people
are members of over 350 chapters. The F.F.A. has been represented

attorney, or any other interested party may submit his/her
evidence or comments on the issue of whether or not a
violation occurred.
(c) Upon hearing the comments and/or evidence, the
designated committee of Fair Board shall decide by majority
vote, in its sole discretion, whether or not a violation has
occurred.
(d) The Fair Board shall notify the Exhibitor, his/her Parents/
Guardians and/or immediate family of its decision on
whether or not a violation has occurred and the disci­plinary
action to be taken pursuant to Paragraph 4.
(e) In the event an alleged violation of the laws, rules, regu­
lations, or this Agreement is initiated by an Exhibitor, his/
her Parents/Guardians, or other interested party through
the protest procedure as set forth in the con­stitution, and
rules and regulations of the Butler County Agriculture
Society, then, said protest shall follow the procedures set
forth in this paragraph.
4. In the event there is a determination that there has been a
rules violation pursuant to paragraph 3 above, then the Fair Board,

of the fair.
7. In the case of an animal being condemned at slaughter, the

for disqualification in the on-foot and carcass division of the show.

8. A maximum of 40 pens of chickens, 10 turkeys, and 25 pens of rabbits
will be sold.
9. The sale will be conducted using the Premium Bid system. If a
buyer “turns” the animal(s) over to the packer the buyer pays the
bid price. If the buyer “keeps” the animal(s), buyer pays the bid
price plus the packer price.

All hogs will be loaded out sale day (Saturday) night at the conclusion
of the fair activities
-Hogs will run through the sale ring, and at the responsibility of
the Junior Fair exhibitor, be returned to their pen, and the care
of the hogs will be under the responsibility of the exhibitors or
their guardians until the packer truck arrives that evening (this
is simply to maintain a group and community effort to keep
the pigs’ well being as our primary interest. Loading out in the
middle of the day is very stressful on the pigs, and packers will
pay more for the packer bid if we load out at night)
All Junior Fair projects are eligible to run through the sale ring on sale
day Saturday
-Every Junior Fair exhibitor is eligible to sell up to 2 animals per
species. This includes the beef department where an exhibitor
can sell 2 market animals, or 2 feeder calves, or 1 of each.
-Projects will be automatically entered into the sale and
it is the responsibility of the exhibitor or their guardian to
pull them from the sale(if sold at the auction, projects are
ineligible to show at any other junior shows)
-Projects can be pulled from the sale on Wednesday from
4:00-8:00. ALL PROJECTS MUST BE PULLED FROM THE SALE NO
LATER THAN 8:00 PM ON WEDNESDAY EVENING. If not pulled
by 8:00, all remaining projects will be required to be sold
through the Junior Fair Livestock Sale.
If for any reason a packer bid would not be obtained and
there would be no Junior Fair Sale Auction, it will be the sole
responsibility of the owners of all market livestock to remove
their animals from the Butler County Fairgrounds at their expense
by no later than 12:00 midnight, Saturday, the last day of the fair.
Junior Fair Livestock Sale Information

begins and ends. The introduction, and ques­tions and answers
are not included in the timing.
General Guidelines
• A team demonstration consists of two people sharing the
speaking and teaching role. When members of a team fall into
different age categories, they will participate in the older class.
• Due to the limitations of the building’s facilities, no large animals
(i.e. Horse, Beef, Sheep, Goat, Dairy or Hogs over 20 pounds)
may be used in a 4-H Demonstration. Members should use
models, photographs, or illustrations to make their point when
giving a talk about large animals.
• Any small animal (under 20 pounds) used in a 4-H Demon­stration;
provided that the animals do not place the public at risk and that
they meet all of the health requirements established by the Ohio
Department of Agriculture Livestock Health Requirements found
in the Ohio State Fair Livestock Exhibitor Handbook. Current
health and shot records must be carried with the animal. Animals
must remain caged or leashed before and after the presentation.
• Members using computer generated or other audio visual
equipment must bring their own equipment to the Fair. We will
provide a screen.
• All presentations are timed and recorded. Timing begins when
the member begins to speak and ends at their con­clusion. The
time allotted for introductions, questions and answers is not
included in their time.
• Firearms, bows, arrows and weapons are not permitted on the
fairgrounds - and may not be used in a 4-H Demonstra­tion or
Illustrated Talk. Plastic replicas are permissible, but we urge
caution in the use of items that look truly authentic in that they
may create safety concerns with Fair Security and may not be
permitted on the grounds.
• When members are using audio visual or computer generat­ed
presentations face equipment failure and glitches cannot be
resolved in a reasonable time (a few minutes), the judge may
elect to move to the next presentation. The member will be
given time to work out their technical problem off stage and then
reschedule their presentation. If the member has a second failure
of the equipment, the presentation will be ended and evaluated
accordingly.
• Members who use PowerPoint within an Illustrated Talk or
Demonstration should use the technology to supplement their
delivery. The Illustrated Talk may not be a pre-recorded narration.
The member is required to provide a live delivery of the topic.

question and submit copies to his/her parents and the 4-H
Educator detailing the reasons for the intended dismissal.
b. The member in question may appeal the action by presenting
his or her case to the 4-H Educator. If the decision the
member is upheld, the member may complete the year’s
club work by rejoining another 4-H horse club, providing
that club will accept him or her.
2. The Sr. Fair Board director may refuse a member the right to
participate in any event at the Fair if they see fit to do so for the
betterment of the Jr. Fair pro­gram. Example: unfit, or unhealthy
animal, conduct unbecoming to a Jr. Fair Exhibitor, etc.
3. Suggested procedures for handling horse show complaints: 1)
Complaints will be handled through the Jr. Fair Board Horse
Representatives. They will clarify rules and arrange for the
exhibi­tor to visit with the judge, if they think the request is
justified. The Jr. Fair Board has the right to prohibit an exhibitor
from showing if he has evidence that the exhibitor is ineligible
to show. 2) If the complaint cannot be handled at the Jr. Fair
Board level, the next step is to file a written complaint. See Jr.
Fair Board articles IX Jr. Fair Board Constitution.

Equine Safety and Ethics program for 2014.
1. The program for new horse members continues to be as
follows:
a. Have every 4H’er and their parent to read the safety
booklet, Circular 191R - parent and youth must sign off that
they have read it. The last page of 191R has a place for them
to sign. If parent/guardian has more than one child in 4H, they
only need to buy one booklet (will save cost of multiple books).
b. The youth and parent/guardian must view two videos:
Every Time Every Ride and Horses, Kids and Ethics -these
should be in every county office.
c. The parent and youth must sign the Permission to Par­
ticipate In 4H Horse Activities Disclosure and Release of Claims
form which was developed and passed by the University’s at­
torneys to use in the 4H horse program. This form is available
on the web site. Make copies so club advisors can have the
parents and the youth or the youth sign (if over 18 years) the
form.
Youth and parents that have been through the Safety and Ethics
Program in previous years do not need to repeat the whole
program. They only need to sign the Permission to Participate
In 4H Horse Activities Disclosure and Release of Claims form.
The Ohio Limited Liability Law requires that the release form
be redone each 4H year. The club advisor should verify that
191R has been signed by youth and parents for new youth. The
youth and parents should keep it as a resource. The goal of this
program is to reduce liability risks on our volunteer leaders and
to keep our youth and their parents better informed and safer.
If you are taking a horseless horse project to the Fair, this is what
you need to know:
1. You must have a project such as a poster, display, etc. and be
prepared to be interviewed on that project.
2. Horseless Horse judging will be the Friday before fair start­ing
at 2:00 p.m. Location in the new building.
3. Projects are to be in place and set-up by 4:00 p.m. on Sat­
urday. In the Youth Exhibitors building anything of value should
be placed before judging and removed after. The area will be
locked at night.
4. Projects must not be on Foam Board or tri-fold posters. They
must be either standard poster size (22” x 18”) and no smaller
than 11” x 14”. Interviews should not take a long period of
time. Suggest about 3 to 5 minutes.
5. Dress Code: proper English or Western attire. Project is
disqualified if not meeting dress code.
6. Must complete a Jr. Fair entry from.
Horseless Horse Test
Testing shall be given on level at which 4-H member should be.
Ex: If an 18 year old has horse that becomes lame/etc. and does
a horsless project, he/she will do the same level of testing they
were scheduled for - Draft - Nutrition, etc.
If you have an 18 year old 1st year in 4-H, it is suggested that
they review the entire “Basic Horse Management” Book and take
the high level.
