An April 16 deadline is approaching for independent junior exhibitors planning to enter goats, swine or sheep at the Merced County Fair, which runs June 15-20. Independent junior exhibitors entering market animals must give fair management a copy of their birth certificate or driver's license as proof of age. This is a local requirement.
According to state requirements, independent junior exhibitors entering market animals must provide fair management with a photo of their animal, appropriate proof of ownership, permanent tag, tattoo and/or hog ear notch information. The fair's deadline for independent junior exhibitors entering market beef has already passed.
All required information must be submitted to the fair office at 900 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Merced.
