INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS OF LIVESTOCK
Protest designed to affect awards must be made by an interested party and notice given to the Superintendent of the Department before the examination of the protested animal or article by the awarding judges is concluded and a written statement, verified by affidavit, setting forth the reason for protesting, must be filed with the Secretary on the day the animal or article is judged.
In every case of protest the protesting party must deposit with the Secretary at the time of filing the protest an amount equal to the premium. This sum shall, in the event of protest being sustained, be returned to the complainant, and if the protest shall not be finally sustained, be paid to the Treasurer of the Fair.
Every protest made for the purpose of affecting the amount of premiums offered, or the withdrawal or addition of any premiums, or the removal of any judge, for the employment of any judge not already employed, shall be made in writing addressed to the Board of Directors, setting forth the grounds upon which such premium offer, employment, or non‑employment of said judge is sought to be effected, and stating the facts upon which such grounds are based. No statement, in writing, will be considered other than those verified by affidavit.
Information for Exhibitors of Livestock
The Edgar County Fair now pays all premium checks by computer. All entry blanks must be completely and accurately filled out before your Entry Form can be processed or before a check will be issued. A separate Entry Form will be required for each exhibitor in each department. The exhibitor must provide their name, address, zip code, and telephone number along with their social security number - NO EXCEPTIONS.
All exhibitors must furnish registry paper for Superintendent's inspection.
Entry forms must be complete and must also include entry fees and stall rent. These forms and fees may be mailed to the Secretary prior to July 13, 2013. Livestock entries will close July 13, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. with the exception of one (1) day shows.
Pens and stalls will be reserved as entries are made and fees received. Exhibitors who desire to have stalls or pens reserved for them will forward list of entries accompanied by a draft for entry on or before Saturday July 13, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. This is the only sure way to get the stalls and pens you want.
The premium list has been carefully revised and the offerings are liberal as the Association can afford. No premiums can be added after the publication of this list. Every exhibitor will be given an absolutely square deal, and no special arrangements or guarantees will be made with any exhibitor.
No more than two premiums will be paid to any one exhibitor in any one class.
For all animals brought to the grounds and not entered in any class, a stall or pen rent, equal to one entry fee for each such animal will be charged.
Each livestock exhibitor must furnish his own buckets for watering and his own feed trough. Exhibitors of livestock will be required to keep stalls in a neat and clean condition, and space over which visitors will pass in examining stock, free from waste and rubbish. All stalls and pens must be cleaned before 8:00 a.m. each day and refuse disposed of as Superintendent may direct.
Exhibitors of purebred livestock shall furnish the Superintendent of the proper department satisfactory proof as to the breeding of the animals on exhibition. Exhibitors are required to have their registry papers with them, and this is the most satisfactory way of settling disputes regarding the eligibility of animals exhibited.
All competing animals shall be exhibited and paraded, failure to comply with these rules shall forfeit all premiums awarded his/her stock.
Great care will be used by the officers of the Association to prevent loss by theft or injury to animals or articles on exhibition, but in no case will the Association become responsible for loss or injury should any occur.
There will be no refunds.
No judge shall be permitted to exhibit and receive a premium in the class in which he acts in said capacity.
Expert judges will be secured and the Association will endeavor to have all awards made by the single judge system as far as practical.
Exhibitors will be permitted to bring into the grounds only a limited amount of feed, hay and straw, and the management reserves the right to refuse admission of such if in their judgment there is an excessive amount. The space in the barns is for exhibition purposes and not for storage of feed.
Health of Animals
Animals affected by or having been exposed to any contagious disease during the 30 days next preceding the Fair will be excluded from the grounds.
Exhibitors must submit their animal for examination by the official Veterinary when so ordered by the Superintendent or Secretary, and his decision will be final as to the defect of the animal exhibited.
In the case of the outbreak of any contagious or infectious disease among domestics exhibited, the management reserves the right in such emergency to withdraw the premium therefore by giving public notice at any time.
