Be sure youunderstand health regulations before you enter

Open to exhibitors enrolled in a Poultry Project. All poultry exhibited must be at least 6 weeks of age. Exhibitors may not enter more than 20 poultry exhibits; this includes Market Classes: Roaster, Broiler, Geese, Duck and/or Turkey. Members MUST enter showmanship on fair entry form; exhibitors will NOT be automatically entered in rabbit and/or poultry showmanship. Project members may also exhibit in Department J-10, Class E, Petless Pet/Animal Project.

All judging of poultry will follow the American Poultry Association’s Standard of Perfection. A standards book is available for viewing at the UW Extension office. Recognized breeds may be exhibited even if not in standard of perfection. Information to order your own copy is also available.

POULTRY HEALTH RULES:  Please refer to the Appendix of the fair premium book to review the health rules.  Proper health papers must be presented to a superintendent when you bring in your exhibits on entry day or your animals may be sent home.  If you are still in need of somebody to test your poultry call the UW-Extension for tester contact information or checkout http://datcp.wi.gov/animals/poultry/index.aspx

Be aware while transporting animals in extremely hot weather.  Extreme temperature changes (i.e., heat to air conditioning to heat) can cause extreme stress.  Less stress would be caused if just hauled in an open aired vehicle.  If the weather is extremely hot, try to bring your animals in the early morning or late evening when it is cooler.  Always try to have fresh water available.  Water is also available on the west side of the new addition to the poultry and rabbit barn.

POULTRY BARN RULES:

Premiums will be withheld from exhibitors who do not comply with the barn rules set forth for the department in which they are exhibiting.

  1. Care of animals is the responsibility of the exhibitor. Animals should be fed and watered twice a day. Proper food and water containers should be used (no paper or Styrofoam cups).
  2. Poultry cages must be cleaned daily and fresh bedding put in pens daily if needed. Keep aisles swept and clean. Exhibitors may need to supply some of their own bedding.
  3. Tack (carrying crates, show tables, etc.) and excess supplies (including food and water) that do not fit in an empty pen should not be stored in the barn.
  4. NO horseplay allowed in barn (running, throwing water, etc.)
  5. Animals will be released at 4 p.m. on Sunday and barn cleared out by 7 p.m. Exhibitors are asked to take down pens as their animals are removed. Superintendents are not responsible for animals left in barn past 7 p.m.

**If you have a conflict and cannot be at the fair to care for your animals, have someone from your family or club do it for you or contact one of the superintendents they will be more than happy to check on your animals if necessary.

A Best of Breed will be selected from Standard Poultry, Bantams, Waterfowl, Turkeys and Pigeons. A Grand and Reserve Champion will be selected from these.
