Spring tag-in will take place on Saturday, May 1 at the Adams County Fairgrounds. Feeder calves will tag from 8 a.m. – 12 noon. Feeder calf exhibitors should bring a completed feeder calf vaccination record which was emailed and can be found here or have the fair vet administer the required vaccinations at tag-in. The fair vet will be on site to provide vaccinations/castrations for feeder calves. Exhibitors are responsible for vet fees.
Market Goats will tag from 8 – 10 a.m. and Market Lambs from 10 – 11 a.m. Goat and lamb exhibitors will enter the Larry Ave gate and be weighed and tagged at the Small Animal barns. This will cut down on congestion on the upper end of the fairgrounds and allow goat and sheep exhibitors to park closer to their weigh/tagging area. All goats and lambs must have official USDA scrapie identification at the time of tag-in, and animals with blue, slaughter-only or meat scrapie tags will not be tagged and may not be exhibited at the fair.
Each large animal exhibitor will be required to designate at least one animal in his/her name. A family can tag an additional two animals of that species per Junior Fair member as “family” animals. Each exhibitor will have access to no more than three total animals in that species at fair, including “family” animals. Family is defined as junior fair eligible youth who are legally siblings, half-siblings or step-siblings.
For more information please refer to the Exhibitor Letter and Fair Requirements that were emailed to you and can be found at https://adams.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development/animal-projects.
