2017 Claims Male Futurity
The Claims Male Futurity is meant to provide LFA members the opportunity to market their young males 5 months and over of any wool type or coverage. The entry fee is $100 per llama and NO COMMISSION will be charged. These consignments will be included in the LFA catalog which is mailed to over 400 current llama aficionados.
Claims males will be on display all weekend and buyers may "claim" their selected male for the price listed by the consignor at any time over the course of the weekend. The males will compete against each other in two separate futurity classes on Saturday, June 24th and the top three winners in each class will receive significant payouts. The males entered are typically high quality animals from proven pedigrees who often times have accomplished their own impressive show records or even proven themselves with offspring on the ground.
A review of the Claims Entrants pedigrees and a hands on inspection will be offered for each division on Friday evening during the LFA/ILR Social Hour. A final hands on opportunity will be provided before the placing of each class on Saturday.
Winner payouts will be split between the consignee and claimant ONLY if the male is reported claimed to the LFA before the placing of the class. In the event the male is not claimed before the placing of the class, the consignor will receive all prize monies.
The claims futurity sale will be on a private treaty basis and DNA testing will not be required, however the LFA is not responsible for the genetic parentage of the claims entries.
Judging criteria will be the same as the World Futurity.
Payouts will be 70% for first, 20% for second, and 10% for third place, based upon entry fees.
Ribbons will be awarded to sixth place.
Claims male classes as listed in the catalog:
Claims Class 1) All Intact Males 5 months up to 18 months (Born from 1/24/15 to 1/24/2016)
Claims Class 2) All intact Males 18 months and older (Born prior to 1/24/15)
The sooner the LFA receives your Claims entries, the more publicity we can provide your consignments.
