Class Rules and Regulations

Young Guns Bulls

Bulls will be hosted at Heartland Bison Ranch in Rugby, ND.

Limits will be 70 total head and 3 bulls/consignor at $1250/head.

Bulls will be scored as follows:

  • 20% in weight, 20% ADG on grass (105 days), 20% ADG on grain (105 days), 20% Confirmation, and 20% final weight.
  • Class will be trimmed from 70 to 50 animals after performance tests. Only these 50 animals will be confirmation judged.

35-25 animals will make it to the final sale, and final number will be at Show and Sale Committee discretion.

Semen testing will be conducted at the host ranch discretion after the weights from the feed tests.

Consignors whose animals do not make the sale will have the option to take their bull(s) home. The timeframe for this decision will be at the host ranch discretion.

Girlz Going Wild Heifers

Heifers will be hosted at Jumpoff Buffalo Ranch in Belle Fourche, SD.

Limits will be 60 total head and 3 heifers/consignor at $900/head.

Heifers will be scored as follows:

  • 25% in weight, 25% ADG grass, 25% ADG Grain, 25% confirmation.
  • Heifers will be sold on an individual basis based on scoring as deep as the bull class. Example: 28 bulls make the sale, so 28 heifers will be sold individually.
    • Heifers that do not make this scoring class, will be sold in groups by consignor. Example: DTBA Bison Ranch enters 3 heifers. 1 makes the top 28 and will be sold individually. The other 2 will be sold at 2 times the money as a group.
    • If only 1 heifer does not make the sale, it will be sold individually outside of the competition class.

North American Producers’ Challenge

Must enter both classes to be eligible in the North American Producers Challenge.

Prize Money will be: 1st: $4250, 2nd: $2250, 3rd: $1250

Scoring will be the total combined score of animals that make the sale. Eligible heifer scores will be equal to the number of bulls that make the sale. Example: if 28 bulls make the sale, the the top 28 heifers’ scores will be counted towards the North American Producers’ Challenge.
