Breeder’s Choice Salers Sire Futurity

The Investment: Pay $600 for a Futurity Membership
The Sure Thing: Get 20 Units Semen on the Breeder’s Choice Champion Bull
The Fun Part: One Member Wins the Breeder’s Choice Champion Bull

The Fine Print: Futurity is January 15, 2018 at the National Western, Denver

  • Up to 52 Memberships will be sold for $600 each.
  • The Breeder’s Choice Futurity Champion will be selected by scored balloting of the participating Futurity Members and not by a show judge.
  • The Futurity Champion Bull will be awarded to one Futurity Member who will be selected by a drawing. Each Futurity Member (except the consignor of the Futurity Champion Bull) will have one chance to be drawn. Members get 20 units semen on Champion.

The Bulls: $150 to Nominate a Bull (Deadline is October 15, 2017)

  • Nominated bulls must be registered Salers that are parent verified.
  • The owner of the champion bull will be awarded a cash prize based upon the combined total of Futurity Membership Fees and Futurity Bull Entry Fees less costs, expenses and administrative fees used to conduct the Futurity. Total cash purse is dependent on the number of memberships sold and the number of bulls consigned.

The Next Step: Check to “Bull Futurity” for memberships and nominations
