2019 ITTLA Heifer Futurity


Red River Sale Barn
Overbrook, OK

March 29, 2019

WELCOME

The Indian Territory Texas Longhorn Association (ITTLA) is very excited to have the opportunity to host our 2019 ITTLA Heifer Futurity in conjunction with the Texoma Spring Classic on Friday March 29, 2019.  We welcome owners and breeders from all Longhorn associations to participate. All registered and branded Texas Longhorn heifers are eligible to enter regardless of which association they are registered with.   

In addition to ten classes of some of the best heifers in the breed ranging in ages from 7 to 28 months, new this year we will also offer a class for registered and branded Texas Longhorn cows born in 2010 or before.  This new class will allow owners to showcase their best producers.  We will also have Cow Patty Bingo as well as some auction items. Dinner will be provided on Friday evening after the Futurity and awards will be presented at that time.

Awards for Class winners are still in the works, with cash payouts to other placings based on the number of entries in each class.

We are looking for people who would like to help by becoming sponsors. Please see the additional information for sponsorship opportunities and contact Rob Van Liew if you are interested in becoming a sponsor. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 ITTLA Heifer Futurity.


SPECIAL THANKS

We want to extend a special thank you to the Texoma Spring Classic Partners - Bob and Pam Loomis, Dale Hunt and Sherrill Caddel, and Chris and Christina Clark for allowing us to have our Futurity in conjunction with their sale. We truly appreciate their assistance and hospitality.

FUTURITY WINNERS

All futurity winners will be allowed to sell in the Texoma Spring Classic 2019 on Saturday March 30, 2019. If you think your animal will win its class and will be entered into the sale, that animal must meet all health certificate requirements listed in the Texoma Spring Classic 2019 Consignment Rules.

This includes Brucellosis (Bangs) and Tuberculosis test results listed on their health certificate. Since futurity entries not entered in the sale only require a health certificate with a veterinary visual inspection, please plan accordingly and get this additional testing done when you get your health certificate if you think you will enter a futurity winner in the sale. See the Texoma Spring Classic 2019 Consignment Rules for more information on their requirements.

If you choose to enter your futurity winner in the sale, you will not be required to pay the consignment fee, however the commission will apply.
