2020 Health + Barn Requirements + Stall Mat Rental

REGISTRATION IS OPEN

SAME LOCATION - Will Rogers Memorial Complex in Fort Worth, TEXAS

Cattle Barns 2 & 3 with the adjoining arena

 

Remember that floors in Barn 2 are concrete.  You need to bring your own mats and hay for absorption and padding.  Floors in Barn 3 (Budget Buster Stalls) are dirt.  It is recommended that a mat be utilized if shavings are also used as remnant shavings could be left behind.

Due to stall gate closures disappearing after events, we no longer supply these.  Please bring your own to ensure proper closure of your stalls.  Thank you.

The Will Rogers facility does have WOOD chips available for purchase.  Most exhibitors indicated that these were a problem and didn't want them due to fleece issues.  You need to let Larry Ferguson know ahead of time if you DO want some for your stalls as we have to make appropriate arrangements. 

If you want your stall pre-cleaned and nice stall mats installed prior to your arrival, contact Linda for that service - info is at the bottom of this page.

 Mandatory Health Requirements

Both show and companion or PEN SALE alpacas must have a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI). The CVI must be completed within 30 days of February 14, 2020 and must have the following information contained therein:

1. Full AOA registered name
2. AOA number
3. Microchip number, and
4. Per the current show rules (Part 8 – Section 1-C): “All alpacas entered in or present at the show must be tested for BVDV using the PCR test. One test in the lifetime of the alpaca is sufficient to ensure that it is not a Persistently Infected (PI) alpaca. The BVDV “negative” or BVDV “not detected” test result must be written on the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) along with the date of the test, the lab that performed the test and the testing method (PCR).”

If you have questions regarding health requirements or any other Halter Show issues, contact the Show Superintendent:
