VAN WERT — The Junior Fair Board has set the date and time for the 2014 show steer, performance steer and dairy steer weigh-in.

Please mark your calendars for 8-10 a.m. Saturday at the Junior Fair Beef Barn on the Fairgrounds. Animals not weighed in at the end of the time may be disqualified from participation in the 2014 Van Wert County Jr. Fair. Exhibitors may allow someone else to weigh in their animals for them if they are unable to be present.

Please note: If you are planning to exhibit your steers at the Ohio State Fair, you are responsible for picking up your own nose print cards, ensuring they have the proper signatures and submitting them if they are not turned in the day of the weigh-in. You can noseprint your own animals if you are worried about the stress induced on the animals the day of the weigh-in.

Exhibitors should plan to come in the gate next to the Extension office and leave through gate four (livestock gate during fair) to help with the flow of traffic. Be prepared to wait as the process takes a bit longer than other weigh-ins but feel free to come in and help with other exhibitors and the board to help us ensure the process goes as quickly as possible.

If families have questions, they can ask their FFA advisor or call the Extension office at 419-238-1214.
