Regional Show Point Qualifications:

As of March 19, 2018

To Qualify for Regional Points, an animal must be exhibited at a minimum of two (2) shows within the region.

Any combination of the following shows will meet the regional qualifications:

  • Regional Show
  • Super Regional Show
  • National Show within the designated region

Only shows that are attended within that region count towards that region’s points. A National Show within its region will count towards Regional Points, BUT Regional Shows do not count towards National Points.

In order to be awarded the Regional Show Bull or Show Female of the Year and Runner-Up, you must win a division within that region.

In the event that the regional show does not use the provided ASA Division breaks, the following policy will be used:  Any points that an animal receives at a regional show where ASA division breaks are not used, the animal and points will be moved to the proper division that the animal qualifies for based on ASA Show Classifications.
