Junior Fair Livestock


1. Eligible Junior Fair market animals may be sold in the JUNIOR FAIR LIVESTOCK SALE ON Saturday.

3. The Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion of all live market livestock species and the Carcass Contests must sell.  Each Junior Fair exhibitor of market animals shall sell no more than one (1) lot animals.  Anyone violating this rule will not be permitted to show market animals eligible for sale the following year.  The exceptions will be that if one exhibitor has two or more Grand or Reserve Grand Champions; or an exhibitor can sell one lot and one eligible carcass; or an exhibitor can sell up to one lot, one eligible carcass, AND a scramble calf.

7. Sale animals will be released at the conclusion of their respective species.  It is the responsibility of the seller to care for and feed his animals at the buyer’s risk until the animal is loaded for shipment or until midnight Saturday; whichever occurs first, thereafter the buyer assumes full responsibility.
