ILR Adds Programs to Recognize Outstanding Sires and Dams



The ILR Board of Directors is pleased to announce two new programs to recognize outstanding sires and dams in the industry. The first program is the addition of “Top Ten” rankings on an annual basis for sires in Get of Sire classes and dams in Produce of Dam classes. The second program is the establishment of criteria and a system for recognition of Sires of Distinction and Dams of Distinction, which will be awarded for an accumulation of various results for offspring of the recognized elite animals.

With the intent of encouraging increased participation in Get of Sire and Produce of Dam classes at shows across the country the Board believes recognition of the “Top Ten” in these classes each year is a positive step. The award winners will be determined based upon UAP points earned in the GOS and POD classes at shows throughout each year. Points will not be accumulated from year to year. The awards will be the same as the current UAP “Top Ten” recognition awards.

The Sires of Distinction and Dams of Distinction program is designed to recognize truly elite sires and dams from across the nation. This is an award based on a nomination of animals that meet the strict criteria (see qualifications below). It is the responsibility of the owner to track show results, determine that their nominee meets the eligibility criteria, complete the nomination form, and pay the nomination fee. Since the eligibility criteria includes Certificates of Excellence or Certificates of Championship earned by offspring of the nominee ILR is in the process of creating a link on the ILR database to look up Certificates earned by offspring. Show results of offspring and the nominee are currently available by looking up the UAP show results for the animal being searched.
