If you have any questions you can call the office at 740-962-4854
Fair is just around the corner, time to get excited!
I want to let all market exhibitors know who will be participating in the sale this year that sale buyer photos are to be brought by the exhibitors similar to last year. You may turn them in at Skillathon this Saturday, August 20th or they can be turned in to the extension office. They are due Monday September 5th at the latest and can be turned into the barn meeting at that point. With that in mind, please note that the pictures given MUST be in the CORRECT Format. Pictures must be horizontal orientation as well as the child MUST be dressed appropriately, keep in mind some buyers may hang their photos up in businesses or somewhere for all to see so dress your best! If they are not in correct format or not what has been specified below the pictures may be refused. Please see the photo attached below for what is expected for the photos.
This year kids will also be expected to pick up their photos during the sale to hand deliver to the buyers. This avoids the issues of buyers not checking out and not receiving their cards forcing them to be mailed and potentially still not being received.
If you have any questions please call the office! 740-962-4854
Skillathon day we have a tight turnaround with other events being hosted the same day at the fairgrounds on August 20th, there will be no accepting anyone later than 3:30pm! You must be signed in on August 20th by 3:30 pm no later! If you cannot meet that time frame call the office 740-962-4854.
LAST REMINDER: Anyone interested in royalty must have their applications in to the extension office this Friday, if not turned in already, with all required signatures! All participants should call and schedule an interview time slot for the 16th by Friday as well!
Getting close to the deadline: It is time again for youth to be thinking about the Junior Fair Royalty Contest. Youth 15 to 18 are eligible to compete for King or Queen; youth 12 to 14 are eligible to compete for Prince or Princess; and youth 9 to 11 are eligible to compete for Junior Prince or Junior Princess. (Ages are as of January 1, 2022).

Interested youth need to complete an application and be interviewed. An application may be requested from the OSU Extension Office, to be mailed or picked up or find it online at morgan.osu.edu.

The Royalty crowning will be held at the Morgan County Fair on Tuesday September 6, beginning at 4:30pm at the small stage. The chosen Queen, King, Princess and Prince will be required to participate in various activities during the Morgan County Fair, with the Junior Princess and Junior Prince assisting.

Morgan County Agricultural Society realizes that the use of ractopamine, including brand names: Paylean Optaflex, Engain or any generic derivative of ractopamine is legal BUT our marketplace for hogs will not accept hogs that have ractopamine in their system. Exhibitors whose hogs have ractopamine in their system will be subject to penalties.
The Morgan County Swine show remains a terminal show in 2022.
If you are taking Livestock projects you should have your calendar marked for Skillathon on August 20th. The study guides are posted on the Morgan County Extension website. Here is the link to the Junior Fair items on the website where you can find the guides.
