The 28th Annual International Championship Texas Longhorn Show and Convention
ENID OK — The 28th Annual International Championship Texas Longhorn Show and Convention will be held at Enid, OK, at the Chisholm Train Expo Center, Oct 24 – 27. Entries will be competing from 11 states and open to all registered Texas Longhorn cattle.
The International Texas Longhorn Assn (ITLA) was founded in 1990 and currently has just under 1300 members. ITLA registers pure Texas Longhorn cattle, documents pedigrees, has a member driven show and awards system. ITLA is the only Texas Longhorn registry where members get to nominate and elect by mail-in ballot their own President and all officers/directors.
The big annual event moves around to be fair to all members and has been staged in Houston, Colorado Springs, Michigan, Virginia, Louisville, Cloverdale, Fort Worth, Austin, Columbia, Glen Rose and Houston.
The three-ring all cattle event will include the ITLA Futurity, halter and non halter judged shows, educational profit seminars, live music by the Parker-Dowling orchestra, the Elite Heifer Sale, the International All-Star Futurity, General Membership Meeting, Directors Meetings, Miss ITLYA Pageant, banquet with great food, committee meetings and pleasant times to visit with like-minded cattle folks.
Hotels serving the event include the Enid La Quinta Inn, Country Inn, Spring Hill Suites, Holiday Inn Express, Ramada Inn and Baymont Inn. The Expo Center is 111 W Purdue Ave, Enid, OK 73701.
Generous aficionados may enjoy supporting this event with Sponsorship opportunities. Levels of sponsors may be very generous or minimal, but all are appreciated to make this a huge event.
All events will be judged by ITLA approved judges. The uniqueness of Texas Longhorn cattle with their many points of special identity demands judges who have owned, buy, sell and regularly involve themselves with the industry.
ITLA owns their Austin stone world headquarters at Glen Rose, Texas. For more information on this national event call the firstname.lastname@example.org 254 898 0157. Do attend.
