Points Form

The Columbia Sheep Breeders Association of America (CSBA) will sponsor its annual Points Futurity and Comeback Futurity programs at the 2016 and 2017 National Show and Sales.  The Futurity programs encourage junior members to purchase, raise, and exhibit their female the following year.  Consignors have the opportunity to take an active role in youth promotion.  The Futurity will make it beneficial for breeders to consign their very best animals to sales and motivate junior members to purchase high quality breeding stock. In addition to adding a top quality female to his/her flock, junior members are eligible to win a sizable premium.  Premiums come from consigner futurity nomination fees, along with additional monetary support from the Junior Association.


Points Futurity Competition

a)   Junior members purchase a ewe lamb at a designated sale.

b)   Junior members exhibit the lamb at shows and earn points at each show.

c)   After each show, the junior will submit a futurity form within 21 days of the show to the designated CSBA Board member.
