That's a Wrap!

Posted: Sep 3, 2019

Thank you to everyone that helped make the 2019 Stark County Fair a success!

We are already in the planning stages for the 2020 season. Keep your eyes open for a Survey Link through Survey Monkey. I'd like to get your opinions on how we can "MAKE THE BEST BETTER".

The survey will be anonymous and we hope that everyone that provides feedback (good or not-so-good) provides some suggestions and/or potential solutions.

Thanks again! See you soon :)

Attention Poultry Projects: A Note from the State Vet regarding Pullorum Testing

Posted: Aug 7, 2019

From Dr. Tony M. Forshey (State Veterinarian):

“Due to the fact there is no S. pullorum antigen available for testing, Ohio is waiving the S. pullorum testing requirement for the 2019 fair season. The exception to this waiver is out-of-state poultry that do not have a VS form 9-3. The VS form 9-3 signifies that the poultry are from a NPIP flock that is free of S. pullorum. Ohio is currently S. pullorum free.”

What this means to our new Poultry families: The turkeys purchased from a hatchery still need to come from NPIP approved hatcheries and the broilers will be taken care of by the Poultry Committee. Please bring the NPIP papers that you received with your turkey purchases.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the Poultry committee or Poultry Superintendent – Liz Evans.
