Any animal, upon check-in, which does not have a legible permanent identification mark (ear tattoo marks, freeze-branded marks or hot-branded marks) corresponding to the permanent identification on the registration certificate, is ineligible to show. Once disqualified due to an incorrect or illegible permanent identification mark, animals cannot be retattooed and rechecked at the show.

Other prohibited products include illegal or unlicensed pharmaceuticals or artificial filling. Any animal found to be in violation will be barred from showing.
