If you are enrolled in a poultry project ONLY or if you plan to enroll in a poultry project ONLY please be advised that you may want to enroll in an additional project. We are getting updates daily on Avian Influenza. At this time, NO decision has been made regarding bird exhibitions at county or state fair. It is hoped that enhanced biosecurity practices will prevent the spread of HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza.) However, should HPAI spread, decisions will be made to safeguard Ohio's poultry industry. Please be aware that if the need arises and projects need to be dropped, there will be no penalty when it comes to banner club, etc.  You can find more information at the following links:
