Animal Welfare Policy
The CBJLS supports the humane treatment of all animals. We are committed to: 1. Upholding the welfare of animals as a primary consideration in all activities. 2. Requiring that animals be treated with kindness, respect, and compassion. 3. Ensuring that owners, trainers, and exhibitors use responsible care in handling, transporting, and exhibiting their animals. Animals should never be left unattended in or on a trimming stand. 4. Providing for the continuous well-being of animals through proper watering, feeding, disease prevention, sanitation, and attention to their safety. 5. Supporting scientific research to improve the health, safety, and well-being of livestock.
To provide opportunities for the positive development of youth through Improvement of their life skills Education about livestock production and marketing Challenges to help educate others from their awareness Exposure to business leaders, market supporters, and show volunteers
We strive for courtesy and good etiquette within our exhibitors. We ask that every exhibitor thank our sponsors/donors for their efforts that make our show a reality. We ask that all exhibitors write a thank you note to the buyer for every animal that is sold at the show. The same will hold true for any rewards. We strive to make our show the best we can. We love and respect our youth.
Early in 1995, groups of business people, livestock producers, and parents began actively preparing the foundation for an exhibition venue to promote the development of local youth in agriculture. Interim efforts reflect the acquisition of a quality show location, ground developments, and basic expansion of organizational support. The sole source of revenue to operate and maintain the growth of this project has relied on private funding through donations and sponsorships from businesses and individuals in the Columbia Basin Community.
Since no state funds are available for our show, this program is solely funded by donated money from area businesses and individuals. We ask for your support and contributions for the Columbia Basin Junior Livestock Show. There will be a Columbia Basin Junior Livestock meeting (everyone is welcome) during the CBJLS Show.
