JUDGES AND AWARDS

The decision of the judges will be final and no appeal will be considered except in case of protest.

No unworthy animal will be awarded a premium. When there are fewer animals shown in the class than the number of premiums offered, the judge may, at his discretion, award a prize or prizes of such grade as the animal or animals deserve.

TO EXHIBITORS

The Fair Management will use diligence to ensure the safety of livestock entered for exhibition or display, but under no circumstances will it be responsible for loss, injury, theft or damage by fire, lighting, wind or any other agency, to such livestock on exhibition or display. All livestock on exhibition will be cared for by personnel designated by the Fair. All stalls and pens will be well bedded one time by the Fair, and when needed, free of charge. Exhibitors will be required to furnish their own feed for their animals. All cattle must be halter-broken and on a lead chain or rope to participate in the Fair
