Market Heifer Division
Differences From Breeding Heifer Shows
- Market heifer shows are judged the same way as steer shows but with a little less emphasis placed on structure. Much greater emphasis is placed on finish and muscling than breeding stock.
- Cattle are judged in one of three breed categories; British, American, or Exotic
- Classes are divided by weight, not age
- There is an age limit of 60 days
- A grand and reserve grand champion is selected for each show
- There are no terminal shows for market heifers
British - 3/4 or more Angus, Hereford, Shorthorn, or mix thereof with no Brahman influence
American - 1/4 Brahman or more
Exotic - Anything that does not classify as British or American
Payouts use the same structure as the steer shows except the payouts come from 100% of the entry fees for market heifers.
