We are thrilled to host the 2023 Texas Gold Futurity in conjunction with the TLBAA World Expo on Friday June 16th at 2pm.  Established in 1984, the Texas Gold Futurity allows breeders an opportunity to present animals in their respective classes for evaluation by a panel of five judges who score them based upon TLBAA Breed Guidelines.  The high and low scores from the judges are thrown out, and the remaining three scores are averaged, with the highest score winning the class.
Futurities are an excellent opportunity to showcase and promote your young animals. The fee to enter is $100 with a 75% cash payout determined on size of class. In addition to the payout, class winners will receive a banner with grand and reserve winners receiving buckles. Enter now through May 15th.
