All animals must be registered in the herd book of the American Angus Association. The registration certificate issue date must be prior to the show. 3. The skin color of all animals must be BLACK, except those animals having birthmarks or white hairs on black skin. Animals red in color, or with white skin above the underline, in front of the navel or on a leg or foot, are not eligible to show. 4. All animals must be polled (free of horns or scurs).

false tail heads (or use of any false hair), use of graphite, powders, hemp or other similar substances externally and steroids, growth stimulants or artificial filling internally. Any animal found to be in violation will be barred from showing, with exception of false tail switches. All animals must have a legible ear tattoo for identification. The tattoo must correspond with the tattoo number on the official registration certificate. Once disqualified due to incorrect or illegible tattoo, animals cannot be re-tattooed and rechecked at the show. Exhibitors must have the original registration certificate on each animal available for inspection at the show. All animals must be shown within the official standard show classification of the American Angus Association. Only one person at a time shall lead animals into the show ring. For an exhibitor to be eligible at shows for premium money contributed by the American Angus Association, each exhibitor is subject to Part 3, Section IX of the Association’s rules entitled Eligibility, Conformation and Structure of Animals Presented for Exhibition. Any female shown with calf at side, the calf must be her natural calf and registered. DNA marker or blood type for parentage verification--under the Association Rules each animal for which entry application (registration) is received may be subjected to a DNA marker type or blood type test to verify ACCURACY OF PARENTAGE as covered under Association Rules. Staff of the American Angus Association must supervise the collection of DNA or blood samples. Animals are often sampled at shows, fairs or events where the American Angus Association contributes premiums or where Association personnel participate. If a recorded parent is excluded (as a parent) as a result of DNA or blood type, the owner may request, at his own expense, the Association to determine the actual parent. Failure to determine the sire and dam disqualifies the animal’s eligibility in the Angus herd book, and the registration certificate becomes null and void. Any classes that exceed 15 head will be broken into sub-classes.
