Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey, Milking Shorthorn and Red & Whites will select a Futurity winner for each breed, and then crown the 2015 World Dairy Expo International Futurity overall winner and reserve.
Futurity entries will close Nov. 1, at midnight (CST).
Animals eligible for the 2015 WDE Futurity must be born between Sept. 1, 2011-Aug. 31, 2012. The current one-time Futurity entry fee is $50.
World Dairy Expo's stalling/entry fee must be paid the year of the event, as well. Paper and online entries will be accepted. Both can be found online at http://worlddairyexpo.com/pages/Enter-Online.php.
