Can you show a heifer that is not a pure bred?

    Hey guys,

    The title says it all, I got a heifer and she is not pure bred, but the biggest calf I have EVER seen, so meaty and pretty to. If you want pictures let me know!

    You will need to look at the rules where you are gonna be showing. Do they have a class for that?

    Most fairs do not care if you have a cross as long as you list them as a cross. Mixed breed cows are the bread and butter of the cattle industry!

    Most shows have a class called AOB. It stands for All Other Breeds. Cross bred heifers fall under this catagory, but you will still possibly need some sort of papers on her to prove her age if nothing else (at least here in Texas) as a breeding heifer. If you show her as a market heifer than no papers required, but you also will not likely be able to breed her until her show career is over.

    Since you're in Australia you probably should check with the show you want to show at to see what their regulations are.
