Livestock Sale

We are moving forward with Exhibitor Registration for the Livestock Show and Sale. At this point we are working with representatives from the State WSDA, local Health District, Livestock Committee and the WSU Extension office. Our plan for a show and sale is being reviewed, tweaked, changed and hopefully will be approved. But we had to start somewhere so we are going forward with registration even though the end-result of what the event will look like is unknown.

There are two options:
A) A show and sale with limited entries, and some categories removed.
B) Just a sale.

Quite a bit depends where we are in the Phases and the number of Covid cases in the County. But our goal of having an event for youth with animals is being heard at all levels in the State.Keep your fingers crossed that we can move forward. – Jim McKiernan, Director and the rest of the Fairgrounds staff.
