Livestock Projects Sold through County Fair Premium Auctions

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

As we enter county fair season, this is a reminder that livestock animals sold through a county fair premium sale OR ribbon auction are not eligible to be shown at the Kansas State Fair or the Kansas Junior Livestock Show. This is per Kansas 4‐H Policy. So, please refer to the policy guide on the state 4‐H website for further details. As counties wrap up their county fairs, a list of the STATE NOMINATED animals that participated in the premium auction needs to be submitted via email including the official KSU family nomination name, exhibitor name, specie, and tag numbers sold.

A list of animals state nominated from each county may be found on the state livestock nomination reports posted on the KSU Youth Livestock Program website: https://www.asi.k-state.edu/extension/youth-programs/nominated-livestock/check-nominated-livestock.html. This list includes official KSU nomination family names and tag numbers.

The list of state nominated sale animals is due at the conclusion of each county fair and no later than August 15. For more information, contact Lexie Hayes at adhayes@ksu.edu or 785‐532‐1264.
