Important Information Regarding Jr. Fair Premium Livestock Sale

Below is a link to a Google Form that the Sales Committee would like for ALL Jr. Fair Exhibitors that plan to consign an animal to the 2020 Jr Fair Premium Livestock Sale to complete and turn into the Sales Committee building by Monday, Sept. 7 by 9:00p.m. These will be placed on the tables for the supporters to make their premium donations.

Once the form is submitted, it will generate an email PDF to the exhibitor, and they can print that PDF off. If someone does not have access to a printer, I will drop off the forms to the Sales building so they can pick it up there and attach a picture that way.

Please help spread this word to all members.
