Move-in...Saturday, June 15, 2019

Please come prepared with patience,  understanding, an attitude of grace, constructive solutions and team work!! With the brand new buildings and set-up come brand new procedures. Senior Fair Board and Livestock & Sale Committee are planning the most efficient and smooth move-in procedure and set-up.  Familiarize yourself with the move-in expectations and plan accordingly now so that we can assure a safe, smooth, quick and efficient move-in experience for all!

Please note:

  • Be prepared to unload animals ONLY and keep moving as soon as they're placed in their pen(s)! It is encouraged to move tack boxes in Friday.  Any tack brought in Saturday will need to be carried from the parking lot! The streamlined process of unloading animals will not allow time for unloading tack while animals are moved in to keep things moving quickly and efficiently!
