Merit Points Policy 2014

Merit Points are based on placings at agricultural shows and are cumulative during the show season.

Points will be allocated from 1 September each year and finishing on the 31 August the following year. (i.e. 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2015).

At the end of each year the animals with the highest number of points will be awarded the title of Victorian or Tasmanian Top Doe/Buck for the Year and Supreme Champion.

Points are cumulative and once animals have gathered 100 points they will be honoured with the title of "Victorian/Tasmanian Ennobled Champion".

Since September 2008, points have been allocated to Group classes and an award given to the most successful Stud in Victoria/Tasmania. This is an accumulation of all points for a Stud for individual exhibits as well as group exhibits. 

Points given are: 1st (3), 2nd(2), 3rd(1), Reserve Champions (5), Champions (10) and Supreme (15). Points are doubled for State shows and major shows Interstate.
