MCBA Show Rules at a Glance

May use any Daylight tube you feel is good. The MCBA board has tested bulbs and suggests that the Chapters use the GE SP65 bulb.

Entry form, classification, and show are in the following order:

1) White
2) Sapphire
3) Violet
4) Beige
6) Naturalle
7) Black
8) Charcoal

Hand out above sequence with each entry form.

MCBA entry forms are to be filled out by color. Naturalle animals need to be listed on their own separate sheet. All other colors need to be listed in the color sequence listed above. Since all thirty animals are on one sheet make things easier by listing animals in color sequence.

Number tables from 1 to how many animals you think will be entered. All animals from each ranch are placed in order on the table. If a rancher has 5 white, 20 naturalle, 7 beige, and 10 black, the rancher will receive 42 consecutive numbers for placement on holding table.

A maximum of twenty (20) entries per color section maybe entered by one exhibitor.
