March 1, 2014 -- Attention All Southwest Junior Livestock Show Leaders and Participants:

There have been a couple of important changes to this  year’s Southwest Junior Livestock Show (SWJLS) we wanted to make you aware of as soon as possible to help you plan for next years show.

The board has implemented some changes to the animals that can be exhibited.  We hope that the adjustments that have been made will remain stable for the coming years so people can plan and raise their animals according to the rules.  Basically two tags are allowed for each exhibitor.  However, only two animals can be shown and sold in certain circumstances.  The following are scenarios where two animals can be shown and sold:  Two Steers, Two  Hogs , A hog and a lamb, a hog and a goat, a steer and a lamb, a steer and a goat, a steer and a hog.  Two lambs  or two goats or a combination of a lamb and a goat can be tagged and shown, but only one may be sold.  If an exhibitor has tagged any combination of two animals, no alternate will be allowed. 

Family alternates will still be allowed for immediate family members, step siblings, foster children, or those living in the same home or being cared for by the same legal guardian.  For example a family of 4 can tag one lamb for each child and tag a 5thlamb as a family alternate.  However if the same family has each child tag two hogs, no family alternate will be allowed because the two tag maximum for each exhibitor will be exceeded.  Please call if you have questions.

Going forward, I hope to have another excellent show, and to continue the rich tradition of this show that began so many years ago.  I have many fond memories (in the old barn) showing when I was a youth, and think back of the many friends I gained through showing livestock.

We want many to be involved in helping at the show.  We have established teams, with team leaders to oversee each aspect of the show.  We hope that exhibitors and parents will be willing to serve on those teams during the week leading up to and the week of the show.  If you would like to help, either email or call and we will put you to work.  Team leader will also be calling to solicit help.  Many hands make light work.


Robert S. Cox, President, Southwest Livestock Show


Please make sure all the youth interested in the Livestock show in your area are aware of these rule changes. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your help and your support of the SWLS.

Dear Livestock Leader:

Once again it is time to start thinking about tagging animals for the Southwest Livestock show.

The procedure will be the same as last year.


First, exhibitors will have to bring Hogs, Lambs, Goats and Steers to a central tagging location to be tagged. Due to disease issues and to be in compliance with the State rule regarding Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome, hogs will not be unloaded from the trailer they are transported in.


Second, tagging locations will be the same as last year. Please note the schedule locations and times:

          Cedar Livestock Market                       June 3rd           6:00 p.m. to  7:00 p.m.

          Beaver County Fairgrounds                  June 7th           10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

          Holt’s Feedlot (Beryl Junction)             June 7th           10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.      

          Iron County Fairgrounds (Parowan)      June 7th           10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

          Cedar Livestock Market                       June 14th         10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.


          Beaver County Fairgrounds 1400 East Hwy 21 (near Minersville)

          Cedar Livestock Market 2290 West 400 North Hwy 56

          Holt’s Feedlot 500 W 800 S Beryl Junction (3/4 mile west of Crossroads Equipment)

          Iron County Fairgrounds 50 N 400 E Parowan.


All eligible counties (Iron, Beaver, Washington and Lincoln) will need to have animals tagged at one of the preceding locations and times. Please note that participants from Washington and Lincoln Counties cannot have entered animals at the Dixie Junior Livestock Show or the Clark County Fair; they must choose a show. In addition participants from Washington County must attend Iron County Schools or Enterprise High School. If you cannot attend any of the taggings please make arrangements for someone to bring your animals to one of the taggings as we will not tag any animals on premise. No exceptions!

The big change this year is: Exhibitors can show a hog and any other species and a steer and any other species and sell both, exhibitors not showing a hog or steer can show 2 of any other combination but only sell one.

Entry forms will be due August 5th.

Please Note: entry forms will not be accepted at the Extension Office. Entry forms must be completely filled out, complete with all signatures and entry fees and mailed to the Livestock Show - P.O. Box 684. In addition, showmanship classes will be made up from entry forms prior to the show. Therefore, if exhibitors do not indicate they want to participate in showmanship classes on their entry form, they will not be allowed to enter showmanship at the show. There will be no exceptions to this rule.


The following rules will be specific to goats. Goats must be meat breeds; namely Boer, Kiko or Spanish. Exhibitors can show does or weathers. Goats must be one year of age or less at the show and must be dehorned or have horns tipped.


The docking rule is the same as last year which reads: Market Class market lambs must be docked so that a representative from the State Veterinarian’s office is able to determine that at least one caudal vertebrae (a portion of the tail) is remaining and his determination is final. If you have questions about how to dock lambs to meet this rule or how this rule will be enforced you should contact a member of the sheep committee: Richie Stubbs, Ben Harris or Jonathan Burton.


Also please note: Market goats must weigh 60 pounds, Market lambs must weigh 110 pounds, Market hogs must weigh 240 pounds and Market steers must weigh 1100 pounds at weigh-in or they will be sifted.


In addition, all participants must be registered members of the 4-H or FFA program.


Please make sure all the youth interested in the Livestock show in your area are aware of the tagging dates and rule changes. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your help and your support of the 4-H program.

You probably get quite a few questions from 4-H members and others about how best to prepare cattle for the showing.
To help answer many of these questions, the American Angus Association recently produced a two-part video for its junior members.

Both segments have already been viewed by more than 60,000 youth and parents alike during the last three years.
