Oconto County Fair Youth Livestock Meeting


Oconto County Fair Youth Livestock Project committee members and all junior fair beef, swine, and sheep project members/families are invited to meet Monday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Gillett Public Library meeting room. (Meeting room is in the former BMO Bank building next to the library.)  The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from exhibitor families in these three departments in preparation for developing a two-year premium book for the 2016 and 2017 fairs.  Input is invited on exhibit classes to add, change, or delete, general and department rules and requirements.  Input received will be considered by the fair board, which must approve changes.  If unable to participate in this meeting, suggestions can be forwarded before January 25 to Ken Harter at kharter@plbb.us or mailed to him at Oconto County Fair, PO Box 6, Oconto Falls, WI 54154.  The schedule and preliminary planning for the Performance Project weigh-on will be set at this time.  For further questions on this meeting, please contact Ken Harter (920)-846-2046.



For students who are planning on showing animals at the fair and need to attend a MAQA training: Just a reminder a MAQA session will be held this Saturday, January 9th at Washington Middle School in Oconto Falls starting at 8am.  Seating is limited and you should reserve your spot if you are planning to attend. Please see Ms. Claflin for more details.
