Junior Fair News-Sale Updates, Species Information, etc.


Sale animal designation for the Junior Fair Livestock (Donation) Sale is made in the Blue Ribbon Online entry, which is required for all animals exhibited at fair.  This includes all 4-H/FFA members taking a steer, feeder calf, Gallon of Milk, market rabbit, turkey, “Pen of Three” broilers, market lamb, market goat, or market hog project. Designations will not be allowed after the entry form deadline. Changes are only permitted if the animal is chosen as Grand/Reserve Champion, if the animal dies at the fair, or if the animal doesn’t come to the fair.




Participation in the Fulton County Junior Fair exhibits and shows is NOT REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A 4-H PROJECT.  It is the expectation of the Livestock Sale Committee and the Fulton County Fair Directors that you exhibit your own animal. Off grounds events are not considered special circumstances.


If you would like to exhibit your 4-H project in a booth at the fair and your club is not having a booth display this year, you can exhibit your project in the Miscellaneous Booth. Bring your project display to the Junior Fair Building at one of the following set up times: Tuesday, August 29, 5:00-9:00pm, Wednesday, August 30, 5:00-9:00 p.m. and Thursday, August 31, 12 Noon 8:00 p.m. An exhibit card will be available for you to fill out. Please make sure you sign in with your name, club, phone, project grade, project name and the item you are exhibiting.

Grade Ribbons for Advisors who judged miscellaneous and animal projects will be available for pick up during Junior Fair Booth set up (times above).


We need adult volunteers from each 4-H club with a booth display in the Jr. Fair Building to help supervise the building. If your club has a booth, you must provide two representatives to share a two-hour block of time. This is a great opportunity to see friends, family, and neighbors as they pass through the building and also a chance to look at all the different projects that 4-H, FFA and other organizations have to offer youth in Fulton County. Sign up here: https://go.osu.edu/boothwatch


August 31, 12 noon- 8:00 p.m.

All youth must have their animal health papers and DUNF (completed online, if needed) checked and their animals cursory inspected by the vets at the fair. To do this, all 4-H and FFA youth must enter the fairgrounds off County Road J, WEST of the Gerald Grain Elevator on Thursday. Failure to enter properly could  result in forfeiture of premiums. Scurs: Fair veterinarian will be responsible to make the final determination on whether an animal with a scur will be allowed to show at the fair.  Dairy market, market Boers, and pygmy goats may have scurs or horn regrowth under 1”.  Breeding goats (dairy and Boer) must adhere to horned/dehorned breed standards. A vet slip will be provided by Vet at check-in to prove that animals went through Vet check-in. You will present the vet slip to the weigh master at weigh-in for market and breed animals to pick up back tag numbers.


It is mandatory for all Ohio Junior Fair market animal exhibitors to complete a Drug Use Notification Form (DUNF) ONLINE and attend a Quality Assurance Program before showing their animal at the Fulton County Fair. This is a mandate of the Ohio Department of Agriculture. It is mandatory for all Fulton County Junior Fair animal exhibitors to attend a Quality Assurance Program at least 45 days before showing their animal at the Fulton County Fair. This is a mandate of the Fulton County Livestock Sale Committee and an Ohio law. Quality Assurance Certification from the Ohio Beef Expo is accepted for Fulton County Quality Assurance Certification.

All animals coming into Ohio from Michigan have health requirements. For a copy of the Ohio State Regulation Health Requirements governing the admission of animals, stop by the Extension Office or go to the following website address:  http://www.agri.ohio.gov


1.)  Animals will be veterinary inspected at the gate off County Road J as usual and the proper paperwork collected (DUNF-online, vaccination records, poultry receipts, health papers, etc.). Please have all necessary paperwork complete and ready! No outgoing traffic will be allowed at this gate during check in!

2.)  We will give veterinary attention to individual animals as requested by the exhibitor or parent to fulfill a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship. If we see animals that require veterinary care, we will attempt to contact the exhibitor, but it is the exhibitor’s primary responsibility to report sick animals.

3.)  Exhibitor must fill out a “request for treatment” form at the veterinary building.

4.)  Fair veterinarians will be on the fairgrounds from 5:00-6:00 p.m. for daily treatments and examinations that have been requested during the day. Please try to have the exhibitor or parent present at that time to answer any questions.

5.)  Emergency treatments/examinations (not during the designated time) will be done as seen fit by the veterinarians.

6.)  The exhibitor, a parent, Senior Fair Board member, or species director must contact the veterinarian for emergency treatments.


Non-market animals are removed from the fairgrounds after 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 7, except horses which are released after 12:00 p.m. on Thursday. Goats are released after 9:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 6.


  Drug Use Notification Forms (DUNF) are required on all market animals at the Fulton County Fair check-in/veterinarian inspection and for every animal treated during the fair, including non-market animals, animals treated by owners, and other veterinarians. It’s the owner’s responsibility to complete a DUNF online prior to arrival for the official fair veterinarian; if not, the exhibitor is responsible for any consequences.

All sheep are required to be Scrapie tagged or Scrapie tattooed before they enter the fairgrounds, no exceptions! Scrapie tags/tattoos are not available at the scales. All goats and sheep must have a Scrapie record card, Scrapie tag, and/or Scrapie tattoo with them at veterinarian check in when entering the gate on Thursday.

Junior Fair Health Requirements for sheep, stipulate there be no evidence of fungal infections. For a fungal infection to be considered noninfectious, the lesion must have no scale or crusting present and show some evidence of wool re-growth. If there are any questions regarding health issues, please contact the fair veterinarian prior to fair for a ruling. The official fair veterinarian’s decision is final.

Check-in at the fair: Animals will be cursory inspected at the gate. All animals will be more thoroughly examined early Friday morning. Fair veterinarians will closely inspect each animal at that time. The Fulton County Fair is a slick-sheared market lamb show. All  market lambs must be slick shorn within 10 days of inspection at the gate. Any market lambs not slick shorn will be turned away.  Market lambs must be slick shorn before they can enter the fairgrounds. If any animals show evidence of a contagious or infectious disease, they will be removed from the grounds as soon as possible.


All market and breeding sheep must have the ODA approved Scrapie ear tag of identification from the flock of origin before entering the Fulton County Fairgrounds. Scrapie record cards are available on the Junior Fair page of our website here.  All market goats, dairy goats, pygmy goats and Boer/Boer cross breeding goats must be tattooed or have an identification tag before entering the Fairgrounds, which includes Scrapie ID.

Junior Fair livestock exhibitors should take their empty trailers home after bringing their animal(s) to the fair.

Parking for livestock trailers will be available outside Gate K.


If you are not camping at the fair and need a car pass to get you closer to the barns to bring in feed, you may pick up a load/unload car pass (one per family for large animals only, includes goats) at the Junior Fair Office during weigh-in time only.

This dress code is for all Junior Fair animal exhibitors, except horses and dogs. Junior Fair horse exhibitors should consult the Uniform Horse Rules Book.  Junior Fair dog exhibitors should wear dress clothes that complement the color of the dog and closed toe shoes.

  2. White collared shirt with sleeves. Button down shirts preferred.  Youth with poultry and rabbit projects should   wear long-sleeve shirts to avoid scratches.

The Fulton County Livestock Shows are terminal market shows – no market animal goes home. All 4-H or FFA market animals weighed in at the fair will go to slaughter.  “Extra” no sale animals, which are market animals other than designated sale animals, MUST be brought to the show arena on Thursday just after to selling that species to be loaded on a commercial carrier and hauled to market.  This would include your second hog if you brought both a barrow and gilt to show.  Feeder calves are not considered a finished market animal and are excluded from this rule. Failure to bring animals at the designated load time will mean loss of donation in sale ring on your other animal.


An Open Livestock Judging Contest will take place on Tuesday, September 5, at 12 noon in Spangler Arena. All 4-H and FFA members are welcome to participate. Classes will consist of dairy, beef, sheep and hogs. Prizes will also be awarded.

Ohio 4-H Winning Plan

The Winning 4-H Plan (W4HP) assists Extension professionals and volunteers by providing resources to aid them in
developing accommodation plans to meet the needs of Ohio 4-H youth with disabilities. As a part of The Ohio State
University, Ohio 4-H must make all aspects of 4-H, including programming, projects, facilities, and activities, accessible to
people with disabilities.  The learning and experiences that a member gains through 4-H are just as
important, if not more important, as a “perfect” final project or a blue ribbon at the fair. Creating access is more than
ensuring the member can attend 4-H events and fairs, it includes choosing an appropriate project, holding meetings and
activities in accessible spaces, and including all members in all activities.

Basic Procedures for Creating a Winning 4-H Plan  – Click here for complete policy and form

  1. 4-H parent/guardian submits request form to local Extension office. Request forms must be submitted in a time frame
    that is reasonable to consider the request and implement the approved accommodations. Some requests take longer
    than others to implement, and it is beneficial to turn the form in as early as possible prior to the event.
  2. County 4-H professional reviews request.
  3. County 4-H profession meets with 4-H parent/guardian (and member) to discuss the request.
  4. Determine reasonable accommodations.
  5. County 4-H professionals sends notification of approved accommodations to the parent/guardian.
  6. Parent/Guardian communicates approved accommodations with those who need to know (additional details below)
  7. The Winning 4-H Plan should be reviewed annually to discuss any changes that may be needed to the accommodation

Once accommodations are approved, the parent/guardian will receive the Project and Exhibition Accommodations form.
This form is used for the guardian to communicate the approved accommodations to those who need to know, such as
advisors, and in other situations such as on camp health forms. It is suggested to attach the form in the inside of project
books for judges to reference during interviews. Be sure to remove the form if books are displayed publicly. The 4-H
professional will work with others such as fair staff, committees, and judges as necessary to meet the requirements of the
approved accommodations, particularly when the accommodation requires facility or procedural changes to a show or
event. Be sure to talk with the county 4-H professional if you have questions. Communication is key to successful
