Livestock Classifications – Rules & Regulations
1. The Region of Peel Agricultural Society has again adopted the classifications as suggested by the Canada Department of Agriculture and the following rules concerning this classification apply.
2. Health-all animals shown must be in healthy condition, free of all diseases. Veterinarians of the Health of Animals Division Canada Department of Agriculture make checks from time to time to see that this rule is enforced. Ontario has Brucellosis-free status now. Agriculture Canada informs us of the following regulation change: Certificate of Health (form 4's) are not necessary for animals going to shows in Ontario. All animals from out of province must have certificate of health.
NOTE: NO ANIMALS WILL BE ALLOWED OFF TRUCKS WITHOUT APPROPRIATE HEALTH CERTIFICATES.
3 Registration certificates must accompany each animal so that they may be checked as the animal enters the ring and all cattle must be property of the exhibitor.
4. a) For the purposes of the Classification as an exhibit shall be interpreted as follows: All purebred registered animals, whether owned by one person or by more than one person (individually or jointly) which are maintained on one farm or breeding unit, are considered to be the production of that farm or breeding unit. An exhibit is a unit of livestock qualifying for an entry into a class as specified in the classifications. Classes J and K in the Beef Cattle Section are considered to be one exhibit for definition purposes.
4. b) For the purposes of the Classifications a breeding unit is defined as follows: In each classification where the same or common interests are involved in more than one breeding operation such operations are considered as one breeding unit. In all cases where there is any doubt that more than one breeding unit exists, the interpretation shall be that only one breeding unit exists. The responsibility of proof of separation of breeding units shall rest with the exhibitor(s).
5. Checking of exhibits is the responsibility of the fair or exhibition adopting the Classifications. The fair must exclude ineligible animals and those not positively identified before judging.
All animals should be on grounds by 10:00 a.m. unless otherwise stated.
Sections will be judged in the order they appear in the prize list.
All applicable general rules of Brampton Fair shall apply.
Entry fee of 20% will be deducted from prize money unless otherwise indicated.

In keeping with the basic philosophy of the Canadian Dairy Breeds, ethics are an individual responsibility. However, it should be understood that violators are subject to the disciplinary provisions of their breed association's rules and regulations.
