NEW RULES FOR 2021******

The Pasco County Fair Association has adopted a new rule beginning June 1, 2020 for our 2021 fair.
This rule is for ALL Market Agriculture Projects. An exhibitor must be a member of a Pasco County 4-H or FFA. Exhibitor must also either live in Pasco County or attend a Pasco County School. If an exhibitor was eligible to show in the 2020 fair but would not be eligible under this new rule, they will be Grandfathered in. This Grandfather Rule will be in place as long as the exhibitor is a continuous exhibitor. Exhibitor must register and tag project to be eligible each year.
New Rules Continued:

*Weigh-In Thank you letters" must be written to the businesses that provided products used in the Weigh-In on Sept. 12th. Copies must be in included in your record book as well. (for addresses see Weigh-In document below).

*Steers must be under 18 months of age at time of show.

*Steers must have a birth date on or AFTER August 15, 2019.

*Aging of 18 months will be determined by the widely accepted medical standard of the first set of deciduous incisors being absent at the age of 18 months

*Any breeder found to have provided false birth date and or breeding information, shall face a suspension of period of one year per offense. During this suspension period the breeder will not be permitted to sell or provide any animals for participation in the Pasco County Fair Youth Beef Show.

*Any costs the committee incurs as a result of a steer being over aged (18 months), will be passed along to the exhibitor due to resale.
