heres my two cents, i show still and i fit proffesionally, BUT when i fit for someone at a JUNIOR show, i stand back most of the time and make them do a lot of it after i demonstrate, at any other show im just a broke college kid with a set of clippers and a nack for fitting cattle and ill take my meals where i can get them, in regaurds to the comment about the best calf will still win... thats a load of crap! the calf that has the least amount of holes to cover and the most amount of hair to cover them will win.
at my county fair no proffesional fitters are allowed, that doesnt stop ppl from taking there calve for an hour "walk" tho and comeing back ring ready, so how do you really enforce it?

I'm up in Canada, and at my junior shows, the only people aloud to TOUCH the animals are juniors.  They can't have adults feeding, walking, washing, fitting, showing, NOTHING!  But of course, I know kids that are 18 and can fit as good as some of the pros, and that's just the way it is.  My opinion on it is, if you don't like the rules and the way things are done, and the rules either aren't going to be changed, or can't be enforced, either deal with it or don't show.  Just like, if you don't like slick shows, don't go to them.
