Livestock and Equine exhibitors should enter using Gate 3 off Havelock Avenue. Stop and tell parking staff at Gate 3 what show you are with for entry. Livestock exhibitors should unload/load in the designated unloading area north of Pavilion 1 and park their trailers in gravel Lot F (cattle tie lot on east side of fair grounds just inside Gate 3).

Equine and other exhibitors in back barns may use marked spots between barns temporarily for active loading/unloading in the marked 20 minute zones and then park their trailers in gravel trailer Lot F.

NOTE: NO TRAILERS ALLOWED TO PARK IN ANY OTHER PARKING LOT at any time before, during or after the fair.

Note: 4-H & FFA members will be able to check-in Open Class static exhibits when 4-H/FFA static exhibits are released Monday, August 7 7–11am.

 

PREMIUMS AND EXHIBIT RELEASE:

Premium monies are awarded according to exhibit class and ribbon placing.

No premium money will be awarded if article or animal is removed prior to the scheduled release time (unless special arrangements have been made with the show superintendent).

Premium payouts for Open livestock and Equine areas will take place at each show. Premium payouts for static exhibits will take place when exhibits are released and picked up at the premium payout station. All Open Class Static Exhibits will be released Saturday, August 12 from 9pm–10:30pm and Sunday, August 13 from 9am–Noon. No checks will be mailed. No changes or corrections will be made on premium amounts after 14 days.

 

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES:

The following procedure will be followed for any grievance (including judges’ decisions) in the open class areas:

1) All grievances should be discussed with the appropriate superintendent.

2) If a satisfactory resolution is not reached with the superintendent, protests should be stated, in writing, with the nature of the protest and issues involved, signed and submitted to the Ag Society Grievance Committee within 48 hours. This committee will act upon all written protests.

All decisions are final.

 

GENERAL RULES FOR ANIMALS:

An animal may be shown in open class and 4-H/FFA.

If space availability becomes an issue — rabbit and chicken exhibitors may be asked to have some entries leave the premises. This number will be determined by the superintendent and an Ag Society board member.

As a safety precaution, hard soled shoes are recommended when exhibiting livestock.

No exhibits are released early except for hardship/emergency reasons. In such a case, an Early Release Form for Animals and approval must be obtained from the superintendent, show manager. Any livestock exhibit removed from pens or stalls prior to the designated release time without approval will forfeit all premium money.

If an exhibitor violates the rules, the exhibit will be subject to loss of premium, ribbon, other awards and/or elimination from the show.

FANS — Animal exhibitors are highly encouraged to bring their own fans and extension cords. Fans must have finger guards. Electrical equipment must be UL listed and in good working condition — all equipment subject to safety inspection.Equipment found in poor condition must be immediately removed from the grounds. Absolutely no evaporation coolers (also known as swamp coolers, desert coolers, wet air coolers — or any other cooling device which cools air through the evaporation of water) will be allowed. This is an Ag Society rule because these coolers take up more space, water and electricity than needed.

SHAVINGS — Absolutely no outside shavings or straw is allowed. Shavings may be purchased at the new Pavilion 2 General Store (east end of Pavilion 2) during peak hours or Good Times Grill (between Pavilions 1 & 4) from 7am to 10:30pm daily for $8.40 plus tax ($9) with delivery to your stall and disinfection of stall with Nixall between each stall rental. (Note for 4-H/FFA exhibitors staying for Open Class shows, special 4-H/FFA shavings price ends Sunday, August 6 7pm) Open Class Overview

HEALTH REGULATIONS — All animals suspected to be ill may be inspected by a veterinarian or member of his/her staff called by an Ag Society Board member or Show Superintendent. Any animal found to be infected with an infectious, contagious or otherwise transmittable disease, or that is suspected of being so affected shall be removed immediately to a place of quarantine as ordered and directed by the official veterinarian designated by the Ag Society. Additional health regulations may be specified within each respective category. All exhibitors should use their own judgment about returning animals to the farm which may have been exposed to pseudo rabies or other illnesses.

ANIMAL HANDLING CONDUCT RULES — The Ag Society strongly believes non-prescribed drugs or medications should not be used in livestock at the county fair. Therefore, livestock shall be administered drugs or medications at the fair only under the direction of a veterinarian. The use of ice on an animal in any manner for the purpose of improving its show performance is prohibited. Physical abuse of animals is also prohibited.
