REGISTRATION RULES: All livestock exhibitors shall present a Certificate of Registration from the respective breed association for all animals shown. The Certificate of Registration for the animal shall stand in the name of the individual or partnership making the entry of which the exhibitor is a partner. In case of partnership the exhibitor shall state the partnership on his official entry blank, indicating which animals being entered actually are registered in the same. Acceptable partnerships for registration of animals to be shown by junior exhibitors must be similar to the following examples. If your registration does not comply with these, you will not be eligible to show.     Example of acceptable partnerships: John Doe Farms: John Doe & Family; John Doe and Son (daughter may show); Faraday Farms: Joe Doe and Bill Doe.

The exhibitor must have his Certificate of Registration and be able to produce it when called upon to do so. Exhibitors who have left their Certificates of Registration at home or who are unable to present them when requested, regardless of the reason or excuse, will not be permitted to enter the show ring.

When entry fees are paid by check the Fairboard shall have the right to withhold payment of premiums until the exhibitor’s check is honored by the exhibitor’s bank. If check is not valid, entry fee will be considered unpaid and all premiums will be declared forfeited to the Fairboard.

All animals must be entered exactly as ownership appears on registration certificate. (Registration certificate shall stand in the name of the individual making the entry.)

  An exhibitor will be issued an Exhibitor’s Pass for $16.00. All cattle owned in Meigs County entered free upon the purchase of an Exhibitor’s pass. All cattle outside Meigs County will be charged $3.00 per head after the purchase of an exhibitor pass.
