Livestock Exhibitor Cards and Exhibitor numbers
Livestock Exhibitor cards can be picked up in the 4-H office. We also have markers, staplers, and tape that you can borrow; just bring back these supplies when you are finished.
Exhibitor numbers for 4-Hers showing livestock will be available at the 4-H Office on the fairgrounds. Only livestock exhibitors need an exhibitor number.
And while talking about the livestock exhibitor cards, all 4-Hers can come to the 4-H office and get "ribbon stickers" after their show to put on their exhibit cards. There are even Grand and Reserve stickers with ribbons you can put on your card(s).

After the cake auction, the doors were opened to the 4-H Exhibit Hall for the big reveal! Guests could view the exhibits, ribbons, and prizes while munching on goodies from our awesome 4-H bakers and chefs! We also had an open house to the newly renovated 4-H Office. Thanks to the fair board, it looks GREAT!
