Junior Fair Board planning steer weigh-in

VW independent/submitted information

Just a reminder that the Van Wert County Junior Fair Board has set the date and time for the 2015 show steer, performance steer, and dairy steer weigh-in: Saturday January 2, from 8-10 a.m., at the Junior Fair Beef Barn on the fairgrounds.

Animals not in line to be weighed at the end of the time may be disqualified from participation in the 2016 Van Wert County Junior Fair. Exhibitors may allow someone else to weigh in their animals for them if they are unable to be present for the weigh in.

Those who are planning to exhibit steers at the Ohio State Fair are responsible for contacting the Ohio State Fair office for information regarding identification and tagging.

Exhibitors should plan to come in the gate next to the Extension office, and leave through gate 4 (livestock gate during fair) to help with the flow of traffic. Be prepared to wait, as the process takes a bit longer than the other weigh-ins, but feel free to come in and help with other exhibitors and the Junior Fair Board to help ensure the process goes as quickly as possible.

The Junior Fair Board is asking exhibitors to inform others that may be taking show, dairy, or performance steers this coming year. It is especially important for those who are exhibiting these animals for the first time. The Junior Fair Board will try to have lists of previous participants, but it has no way of knowing who might be exhibiting for 2016.
