Livestock Quality Assurance certification MUST be completed at least 45 days PRIOR to the start of exhibition!
*This rule is per the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Revised Code and applies to all of Ohio.
*There will be NO make-up QA session move-in day of the fair.
*This includes youth exhibiting at the Ohio State Fair. Since many livestock shows at the Ohio State Fair are prior to the start of the Athens County Fair, we have scheduled our QA sessions accordingly so that exhibitors meet the deadlines for both.
*Livestock QA will be held on April 21, 2018 at 9:00 AM and May 16, 2018 at 6:30 PM on the fairgrounds.
*The test-out option is still available for older exhibitors-must schedule with the Extension Office.
*The only other QA that will fulfill this requirement is the one offered at the Ohio Beef Expo. Participants in the QA at the Ohio Beef Expo must produce the official "passed" form from the Expo to the Extension Office for the Livestock Task Force to recognize participation and completion.
