2022 Brown County Fair Day in the Ring

We are quickly approaching the 2022 Brown County Fair! We will once again be holding “A Day in the Ring” at the fair! A Day in the Ring is a special show that showcases the talents of special needs youth and adults from the county, as they pair up with a Junior Fair show buddy to show their project animal. This year will include sheep, goats, rabbits, fancy poultry, and dairy cattle. We need your help! We are currently seeking junior fair exhibitors to volunteer as a mentor. Mentors will pair up with our honorary exhibitors to teach them about their animals and assist them in the show ring. A Day in the Ring will be held on Thursday, September 29. Youth mentors will need to arrive at 11:30am in the Open Dairy Arena/Goat Barn with the show starting at 12:00pm in the Beef Arena. Anyone who would like to volunteer with this event can sign up here. Even if you are a youth that does not specifically show on the animals included don’t let that stop you from volunteering, we may still need your help!  This event is a partnership between Ohio State University Extension, Brown County; Brown County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and the Brown County Junior and Senior Fairboards.
