Meat Quality Assurance Programs

May 15, 2017
May 16, 2017

There will be two programs offered in 2017, both from 4-6:30 pm at the Morgan County Fair Grounds.

Guidelines according to the State 4-H Office; anyone with a market livestock or breeding project who has not attended a training must do so, including poultry, rabbits and goats; anyone who was a junior last year and moving to senior (14 years old before January 1, 2017 or born in 2002) must also attend a training.

Those individuals in the Market Swine project have different guidelines that are set by the National Pork Producers Council. Everyone enrolled in a market livestock or breeding project must sign a quality assurance statement on a yearly basis. This includes all new 4-H members with livestock projects. Members that don’t meet these requirements cannot participate at the county fair, State Fair, National Western, or any other major show.

NO EXCEPTIONS

Fair Board is requiring that all 4-H/FFA Members meet this requirement in order to show at the Morgan County Fair.


Premise ID:

ALL LIVESTOCK EXHIBITORS (including rabbit, poultry and horses) MUST HAVE A PREMISES ID TO EXHIBIT AT THE MORGAN COUNTY FAIR.

If you move or are new to livestock please let us know!!
