The showing of registered dairy cattle is an important part of the promotion, merchandising and breeding program of many breeders. Additionally, it is an important part of the program of the Purebred Dairy Cattle Association to stimulate and sustain interest in breeding registered dairy cattle. This relates to both spectators and exhibitors. In this connection, the PDCA believes that it is in the best interest of the breeders of registered dairy cattle to maintain a reputation of integrity and to present a wholesome and progressive image of their cattle in the show-ring. It recognizes that there are certain practices in the proper care and management of dairy cattle, which are necessary in the course of moving dairy cattle to and between shows that are advisable to keep them in a sound, healthy condition so that they might be presented in the show-ring in a natural, normal appearance and condition. Conversely, it recognizes certain practices in the cataloging, handling and presentation of cattle in the show-ring which are acceptable.
The following practices or procedures are considered unacceptable and defined as being unethical in the showing of registered dairy cattle:
Misrepresenting the age and/or milking status of the animal for the class in which it is shown. In any female classes, animals may not be exhibited that are in milk due to unnaturally induced lactation.
Balancing the udder by any means other than by leaving naturally produced milk in any or all quarters.
Setting the teats with a mechanical contrivance or with the use of a chemical preparation.
Treating or massaging any part of the animal’s body, particularly the udder, internally or externally with an irritant, counterirritant, or other substance to temporarily improve conformation or produce unnatural animation.
Minimizing the effects of crampiness by feeding or injecting drugs, depressants or applying packs or using an artificial contrivance or therapeutic treatment except normal exercise.
Blocking the nerves to the foot to prevent limping by injecting drugs.
Striking the animal to cause swelling in a depressed area.
Surgery of any kind performed to change the natural contour of appearance of the animal’s body, hide or hair. Not included is the removal of warts, teats and horns, clipping and dressing of hair and trimming of hooves.
Insertion of foreign material under the skin.
Changing the color of hair at any point, spot or area on animal’s body.
The use of alcoholic beverage in the feed or administered as a drench.
Administration of drug of any kind or description internally or externally prior to entering the show ring, except for treating a recognized disease or injury and for tranquilizing bulls that may otherwise be dangerous or females in heat. For the purpose of this Code, the term “drug” shall mean any substance, the sale, possession of use of which is controlled by license under federal, state of local laws or regulations and any substance commonly used by the medical or veterinary professions which affect the circulatory, respiratory or central nervous system of a cow.
Criticizing or interfering with the judge, show management or other exhibitors while in the show-ring or other conduct detrimental to the breed or show.
In keeping with the basic philosophy of The Purebred Dairy Cattle Association, ethics are an individual responsibility of the owner of each animal shown. Violations of this code are subject to the disciplinary of the appropriate dairy breed association.
