American Angus Association Board of Directors Adopts Rule to Prohibit Aerosol Products at Association Sponsored or Funded Shows

At the regularly scheduled meeting of the American Angus Association Board of Directors, February 24-27, after thorough discussion by both the activities committee and the full board, a rule that prohibits the use of aerosol cans and the products in aerosol cans was adopted.

The new rule as passed amends Part 3, Section IX, of the Association rules by adding a new Rule 11, No Aerosol Products. The rule states:

"Effective July 1, 2004, at any show for which the American Angus Association appropriates funds toward the payment of premiums, no exhibitors, individuals assisting exhibitors or member owners shall be allowed to use products contained in or dispensed from aerosol cans on any animals exhibited at such shows."

"This new rule is not a ‘no-fit’ rule. It simply eliminates aerosols. People can still wash, clip, and fit," says James Fisher, director of activities and junior activities for the American Angus Association. "It will be effective July 1 at any and all shows that the Association participates in with premium payment, both open and junior."

The current Rule 11, Discipline, suspension and expulsion becomes rule 12 under the same title.

Another rule, which was put in place by the Board of Director in September 2003, eliminates the use of products in aerosol cans in the make-up area at Association-sponsored junior shows until July 1. For more information about the rules of the Association, go to www.angus.org/newmem.html.
