The fair has a plan in the unfortunate event that poultry will not be allowed to exhibit at the fair.  We have had this occurrence in the past and will follow similar procedures.  Exhibitors will be able to exhibit in another  manner, receive premiums for their project(s).  Market birds will be sold via photograph to our wonderful livestock buyers, and processed on a slightly different timeline.  More details will follow as we get closer to our fair dates and more information is available.  Announcements regarding those changes can be found here on the website and on Facebook.


Changes to the Entertainment Brochure:  The Craft Show will be held on Saturday, July 20 only.  The Horse Awards Ceremony will be held on Friday, July 19th at 3:00 p.m.


The fair has adopted a rule consistent with recommendations made by the State of Michigan veterinarians regarding quarantining animals 14 prior to showing at the fair.   This is the rule as stated in the fair book:  "Livestock dairy, beef, sheep, swine, llamas, goats, poultry & rabbits cannot be exhibited at another exhibition within 14 days prior to the first day of fair."  This will be strictly enforced.  

Although the Fair has a veterinarian designated for the fair to perform tasks such as check in of livestock and monitor their health throughout the fair week, as well as act as a liaison with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, there is NOT a veterinarian "on call" or available to exhibitors to treat their livestock during the week of fair.  Exhibitors are required to consult with their own veterinarian, as well as assume responsibility for all costs associated with their animal's medical care.
