Updated 2021 Hartford Fair Market Steer/Heifer Weigh-In Information

In an effort to reduce points of contact on Saturday, December 12th, during the Hartford Fair Market Steer / Heifer Weigh-in, all exhibitors are asked to complete a pre-registration form (in place of the traditional registration card) for each animal. Exhibitors are asked to complete this online registration by no later than 1:00 p.m. on Friday, December 11th, so that the information can be printed and available to staff during weigh-in for record keeping purposes. The pre-registration form can be found online at www.go.osu.edu/HartfordMarketBeefRegistration. Please ensure that all information is accurate, and complete, prior to submission.

SPECIAL NOTE: When attending weigh-in, only one person may accompany animals through chute area (exhibitor attendance is not required), and masks must be worn at all times. Cost to purchase EID Tag is $5.00, with exact change expected. Please remain in your truck when not participating in weigh-in procedures.
