Jr. Fair – Herdsmen Award

1 By Keith | July 5, 2014


Tuesday, August 26, 2014 through Monday, September 1, 2014

This contest is held to encourage cleanliness and neatness of the exhibit area and, most importantly, encourage quality care of exhibition animals during fair.  With a society increasingly out of touch with farming and animal husbandry practices, top notch care of livestock on exhibit is necessary to educate the public, promote a positive image of agriculture, and to communicate the exhibitor’s sincere concern for the welfare of their animals.


* Each club will compete against other clubs exhibiting in the same species area ( beef, sheep, swine, goat, dairy, poultry, rabbit/cavy, horse).

* Ribbons will be awarded daily to the top club in each area.

* The top three clubs with the most points for the week will be declared the overall winners and will be awarded $50.00 for their club.

* Daily scoring will be based on Club work habits; housing & equipment; animal care/cleanliness; aisle care/cleanliness (25 points for each area–100 points total).

* Daily winners will be posted on the bulletin board at the Junior Fair Board building.

* Judging will be between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

*Club advisors are asked to pick up their awards at the Jr. Fair Board office on Sunday, August 31, 2014, between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
