Show Information

Please follow the directions and complete all steps of this online registration form carefully.  There will be 2 rings again this year.  Two Rings, Two different Judges = Two shows, same weekend, and same location.  It is one entry fee and you get to show in both rings (A and B).  The option of only paying for one ring will not be available. Online credit card payment and online entry only.  All entries are due Thursday night 12 pm January 25th.  Please take advantage of sponsoring a class or division through this registration process to help cover operational cost and to promote your operation.

Breeding Heifers show on Saturday- Steers and Market Heifers on Sunday.  Prospect show only.  Cattle must be born no earlier than Jan. 1, 2023.  Check in on Friday evening for steers and Heifers and short check in on Saturday morning 7am-8am for steers and market heifers only.

Breed Division Head Requirements and Sponsorship
At least 10 head of either steers or heifers (each) of that breed are needed for a breed division in Ring A and Ring B or they will show in the AOB division.  Breed Divisions can be sponsored to guarantee your breed has a division for $299 for both rings if done online.  It will be $500 to guarantee a division if you wait until the show to do this.  This needs to be done online or as soon as possible to guarantee your division breakout.

**If your animal is not registered with a breed association, please enter as crossbred.  If you select anything other than crossbred the animal must be registered with that breed association, hold a Registration Paper, Reg. number and be properly tattooed.

Updates and Class line-up Calling
Updates will be made on VCCP winter classic Facebook page: .  Class Line up will be announced through the Band APP, VCCP Cattle Shows and Sales Page: .  Be sure to download this APP so you know when to come to the show ring.  Classes will also be posted on the VCCP Winter classic Facebook page and outside show office.

Health Papers and Registration Papers
**All Out of State Cattle need health papers.  Please have these readily available as the state Veterinarians will be in attendance checking for them.  Be sure if you have registered cattle, you have a copy of your registration papers (copy or original) and that your cattle are tattooed correctly.  Bring papers to check in.

Special VCCP Best of the Valley Steer and Heifer sale Steer/Heifer Class
If you purchased a calf from the Fall VCCP Best of the Valley sale, you can show in the special VCCP class for free and should take advantage of this special division.  The winner of this division will receive $1000 and Reserve $750. Please note, this special class will only show in ring “A” and the EID tag number will be required to enter.  VCCP sale calves are also eligible to double up and show in the regular show, ring A and ring B as well, but you will have to register that way by checking both options and pay the normal ring “A” and “B” ring prices.

Heifers and Market Heifers
Heifers and/or Market heifers may show in either the breed or market shows.  You can also double up and show in both shows- Breeding Heifer Show on Saturday and Market Heifer Show on Sunday.  Just be sure you sign up that way.

If you have questions, please call Clint Lyle – 540-292-5953 or J.T. Begoon 540-430-1716
