Important! Buyer Photo Change for Large Animal Sales

Per Muskingum County Junior Fair Large Animal Sale Committee:

There will be no photographer at the large animal sales printing photos for the buyer cards this year. Each youth with a market project is required to bring a photo to affix to their buyer card. Buyer cards will be available at your respective barn meetings and are due with your picture attached at your species weigh-in.

The requirements for the picture are as follows:

  • 4×6 photo of youth and their animal
  • Landscape orientation
  • Must follow showmanship dress code in the picture

Large Animal Sale Committee reserves the right to remove any picture that does not follow the above requirements.

We are making this change to help get higher quality pictures for the buyers and to speed up the sales.
