Breeders and juniors are encouraged to participate in the 2016 USSA Futurity Program!
Last year the program paid out more than $1600 in premiums to participants in the 2015 USSA Futurity!
Taking advantage of participating in this program can help you pay for your purchased futurity nominated ewe lamb! For example, if you placed 2nd in your district in last year’s futurity you won $100! The overall ewe lamb futurity winner in 2015 received $600 and the yearling ewe futurity winner received $100! I hope you’re interested…all you have to do is purchase a futurity nominated ewe lamb and turn in your futurity points forms to the office, that’s it!

To encourage more participation in this program the
Committee and the USSA Board have made the following changes to the Futurity Program:

2016 Futurity Points Form
Ewe Lamb Futurity:
  1. Allow futurity nominated ewe lambs to show, for points, in any class (Suffolk, crossbred, market lamb, etc.).
    Points are obtained, using the current point schedule, based on how the ewe places in the class, no matter the number of Suffolks in the class.
  2. Eliminate double points for the National Junior Show and NAILE; both shows are still eligible for single points.
  3. Futurity rules and one point form will be mailed with the registration paper to the junior buyer.
  4. Futurity rules and points forms will be available at the clerks desk as well as with the online sales for all futurity nominated ewes.
  5. Increase the number of shows from 5 to 7 as a maximum number of shows eligible for total points (more than 7 points forms can be submitted to the office, however, only the top 7 count)
Ewe Lamb Futurity Rules

Yearling Ewe Futurity:

  1. If the ewe was futurity nominated as a lamb, the $25 nomination fee is waived to participate as a yearling.
  2. #1, #2 and #5 Ewe Lamb Futurity changes listed apply to the Yearling Ewe Futurity.

Tad and Amanda Thompson

Silver Dollar Stewardship Award

Award: One pregnant recipient ewe carrying a confirmed pregnancy of 45 days or older by national champion genetics

Sponsor: Tad & Amanda Thompson, Silver Dollar Farm, Lebanon, IN

1. Stewardship definition: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care (Merriam/Webster Dictionary)

2. Motivation for sponsorship: As a youth showing Suffolk sheep we were not able to produce nationally competitive sheep. However, the one factor that I was always able to control was how well I cared for my animals, how well they were prepared for a show, how I conducted myself in public or around my peers, and how well I could present them in the show ring. My goal for this award is to give a Suffolk youth the opportunity to be rewarded for hard work, dedication to the project, and recognition of the example we all set to those around us.

3. The winner of the Silver Dollar Stewardship Award will receive one pregnant recipient ewe carrying a confirmed pregnancy of 45 days or older by national champion genetics. The winner is responsible for the care and management of this recipient ewe and returning her to Reproduction Specialty Group once the lamb is weaned. The pregnancy belongs to the winner.

4. Criteria for contest:

           

a. 40 Point to be awarded based on Showmanship
(including: presenting animal for exhibit, willingness to help others in and out of the ring & good sportsmanship in and out of the ring)

b. 30 points to be awarded for Pen Preparation
(aisle & pen presentation: cleanliness and welcoming others to learn about Suffolks)

c. 15 points to be awarded for Show Readiness
(cleanliness of the animals, not quality of the fit job but attempt to present the animal in the best way possible)

d. 10 points to be awarded for Animal Welfare
(water, bedding, general daily care of the animals)

e. 5 points to be awarded for proper show attire

 

5. Panel of 3 to select the youth.

           

a. Suffolk Junior Suffolk Show Judge

b. National Junior Coordinator

c. Executive Secretary of USSA
