Fair Reminders

If you are showing at the Oconto County Fair, please note the following:

Beef
There will be a Beef Project Clinic on Sunday, July 27th  at 1:30  p.m.at the Fairgrounds in Gillett (near the show ring).  This meeting counts as one educational point.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy at 920-855-2940.  Hope to see you there!

Dairy
Please contact Erin Buhrandt, Dairy Superintendent, with the number of dairy animals you are planning to bring to the Oconto County Fair by August 1st to ensure a spot in the barn.

You can contact her by e-mail at ehbuhrandt711@hotmail.com or by phone at 920-598-0710 with the count of calves, yearlings and cows. (Be sure to have the numbers broken down into calves, yearlings and cows.)

Rabbits & Poultry
Rabbit & Poultry Cage Needs
All youth exhibiting rabbits and/or poultry must get their cage count needs requested by August 1st. If you haven’t sent this in yet, please do so as soon as possible. The number of cages is needed so we can plan the layout of the barn. Clubs are grouped together, so it is important to get your family’s cage needs in on time.

Please send your cage count needs for the fair, by email to Debby Krueger at debbyk@bayland.net. Please, no phone calls. All cage arrangements need to be forwarded directly to Debby, not to the Extension Office.

Please send cage needs as an individual or family, not as a club. When information is sent as a club, we do not know who is involved.
Please be sure to put Cage Count in the subject so Debby knows it is not a virus. Thanks!

Poultry – also take note of the attached file about blood testing. Letter to Exhibitors about Blood Testing 2014 doc

Swine
Summer Workshop
Date:               Monday, August 4, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

A great way to learn more about your project and earn an educational point!  Hope to see you there!
