2020 Animal Project Requirements and Guidelines

2020 Junior Fair Rule Changes



***We have recently received new approval to offer Quality Assurance sessions via Zoom at no cost. Quality Assurance must be completed annually by all junior fair exhibitors in the beef, sheep, swine, dairy cattle, goats, poultry, or rabbit projects – these include pet and breeding projects as well as market animals. To utilize the Zoom platform you can download it on your computer here: or download from the app store on a smartphone by downloading the app called ZOOM Cloud Meetings. After you are registered for a Quality Assurance session you will receive your Zoom meeting ID to join for that training, this will come as a separate email from me. There is no cost to download or use Zoom. Times are limited to 20 individuals per session in order to keep track of attendance and to ensure participation as required by ODA so they are available on a first come first service manner. Once time spots are near being full we will look into offering more times. Complete the following survey to register for your time: ***
