State Fair Changes Announced

State Fair Exhibitors:  Please be aware of some changes to this year's entry process.  Nominations will now be required for commercial heifers and market hogs.  This is in addition to species that previously had to be nominated:  market beef and commercial ewe and market lambs.  Commercial heifers will be weighed and tagged at normal beef nomination sites.  Hogs will need to be transported to a nomination site (locations to be determined) rather than agents making farm visits.

More details are still being worked out, but please make note of these planned changes.
