Please Help to Fund the 2017 USBCHA National Cattledog Finals!

Each year the United States Border Collie Handlers Association (USBCHA) holds their National Cattledog Finals competition. This event is an opportunity to showcase all of the skills and tasks that these dogs perform on a daily basis on the farm or ranch. Dog and Handler Teams from all over the US and Canada, work hard all year to earn enough points to qualify to compete at the national level. This year the Finals are being held in Marshfield, Missouri, October 12-15.
This event is a huge undertaking that requires many dedicated members to donate their time and talents. The USBCHA Cattledog Committee is responsible for raising the funds to host the Finals, including securing the trial facilities, the cattle and the judge.
Your generous donation can help to make it all happen!
We have created this GoFundMe Account to help raise the funds to support the Finals this year.
Please help us to meet our goal and promote this great sport.

The United States Border Collie Handler's Association (USBCHA) is the sanctioning body for sheepdog and cattledog trials throughout the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1979 and has grown into an organization of more than 800 members. Members who qualify at sanctioned Open and Nursery trials during the year are eligible to compete in the USBCHA National Sheepdog and Cattledog Finals to determine the champion dog and handler for that year. Membership is open to any one regardless of what breed of dog you own. Other breeds of dogs that have competed at the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals in the past are Australian Kelpies and Australian Shepherds.  
For the past fifteen years the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals has been influencing and shaping the border collie as a cattle dog across the nation. Many will attribute the improvement of dog quality and handler skill to the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals, it sets a bar of competition and working quality that is unmatched at most local trials.
Herding dogs, such as Border Collies are an integral part of the working cattle ranch or farm.
Every day throughout the US and Canada, these dogs and their owners work together as a team to get the job done! Everything from gathering, herding and driving, to penning, sorting, holding and loading...they do it all! This kind of work ethic and enthusiasm is rewarded with the loyal companionship that these dogs and their owners share.
Many of these farmers and ranchers are members of the United States Border Collie Handlers Association (USBCHA)
