Code of Conduct

Fraud and/or Deception Prohibited

All fraud and deception relating to any exhibit or exhibitor at the Hoosier Beef Congress is prohibited.

The following is a partial list of conduct considered to be fraud and/or deception:
  • Artificial filling of any cattle and/or the presence of pumps on the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Artificial filling and/or injection of any gas, solid or liquid is not allowed at the Hoosier Beef Congress, and no pumps or drench tubes are allowed to be present on the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Violation of this rule will be immediate forfeiture of participation by the exhibitor at the Hoosier Beef Congress. An exception will be granted in the case of a severely sick or severely dehydrated animal. In this situation only, the exhibitor may have fluids or electrolytes administered under the direction of the Official or a Hoosier Beef Congress Committee member.
  • Any tampering (altering) and/or misrepresentation relating to an animals breeding, age, ownership, and/or method of preparation.
  • Unethical fitting of animal exhibits. Unethical fitting includes administering internally or externally any substance and/or performing any surgical procedure, that alters the animals conformation and/or renders its tissues unfit for human consumption at the time of exhibition, including, but not limited to, the use of steroids, growth promotants, or any other such substances, and including the cutting, tearing or gluing of the hide or underneath the hide, or removal of tissue in an attempt to alter the shape of the animal. Exceptions are hoof trimming; dehorning; removal of hair; manipulation of normally attached hair; and treatments or surgical procedures applied to relieve pain and suffering of a sick or injured animal, provided such treatments do not render the animals tissues unfit for human consumption.
Determination of Fraud & Deception:
The following procedures will be utilized to ensure no fraud or deception occurs during the Hoosier Beef Congress:
  • The Hoosier Beef Congress Committee will appoint a Fraud and Deception Official (Official) for each Hoosier Beef Congress show. The Officials responsibility is to determine if fraud and/or deception occurred prior to or during the Hoosier Beef Congress. All decisions made by the Official will be final.
  • The top five placings in each livestock class and any suspect animals may be required, upon conclusion of judging, to submit to examination or tests as prescribed by the Hoosier Beef Congress Committee.
Penalty:
Once the Official or the Hoosier Beef Congress Committee has determined that fraud and/or deception occurred, whether such determination is made prior to, during or after judging, any or all of the following penalties shall be imposed:
  • The exhibit in question will be immediately disqualified.
  • Any or all of the exhibitors entries at the Hoosier Beef Congress will be disqualified. Subsequent violations of fraud and/or deception shall dictate no future participation in the Hoosier Beef Congress.

Stalling Auction

Stalling Auction Rules

The stalling priority that is purchased will allow the exhibitor the right to choose his/her barn stalls, in the order of purchase. Remember, you are not buying stalls-you are purchasing the rights to have a choice without waiting in line. Each successful bidder can get stalls for a total of two HOUSEHOLDS. If getting stalls for another exhibitor, please know exactly what they are bringing (number of animals and sex) and have their original receipt with you. The spot cannot be split between multiple people. It is only one spot in line for one person. Half of the funds raised through this auction will be given to an organization chosen by the HBC committee. The winning bidder of lot one will be first in line, winning bidder of lot two will be second in line and so forth. Please be in place 30 minutes prior to the barns opening and have your invoice with you when you get in line to be put into your proper position.
