In 2016, State Fair will be requiring exhibitors in the projects of Beef, Sheep, Swine, Goats and Dairy to complete an Animal Care program (basically our MAQA program with some additions in other areas) in order to exhibit. The program will have a new look and name and is currently in the planning stages. New features will be flexibility of completion online and other contest types of interaction for youth to utilize their skills in using technology for promotional opportunities. Look for updates and opportunities for feedback from you all as we move through this process. A formal announcement from state fair on this and other show related information will go out to staff and exhibitors in January.
