The Junior Fair Board has set the date/time for the 2019 show steer, performance steer and dairy steer weigh-in. Please mark your calendars for Saturday January 12, from 8:00am-10:00am at the Junior Fair Beef Barn on the Fairgrounds. Animals not in line to be weighed at the end of the time may be disqualified from participation in the 2019 Van Wert County Jr. Fair. Exhibitors may allow someone else to weigh in their animals for them if they are unable to be present for the weigh in.

Please note: If you are planning to exhibit your steers at the Ohio State Fair you are responsible contacting the Ohio State Fair office for information regarding identification and tagging.

Exhibitors should plan to come in the gate next to the Extension office, and leave through gate 4 (livestock gate during fair) to help with the flow of traffic.  Be prepared to wait as the process takes a bit longer than the other weigh ins, but feel free to come in and help with other exhibitors and the Jr. Fair Board to help us ensure the process goes as quickly as possible!

Please help us to inform others that may be taking show, dairy, or performance steers this coming year. It is especially important for those who are exhibiting these animals for the first time.  We will try our best to have lists of previous participants, but we have no way to knowing who might be exhibiting for 2019.
