Poultry P-T Testing
All poultry to be exhibited at any fair must test negative for Pullorum-Typhoid (P-T) Disease within 90 days of a show. The cost will be as follows: 1-19 birds=$1; 20-39 birds=$2; 40+ birds=$3 + $.25/bird + $.50/band (if needed).*
Testing will be done in Ottawa at Celebration Hall, 220 W. 17th Street, Ottawa on June 23 from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
Testing will be done in Garnett at Anderson County Fairgrounds, near the intersection of E Park Road and North Lake Road, July 8 from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
**Members may use any testing site, as long as it falls within the 90 day time frame. If families miss these dates, it will fall upon them to find someone to test the birds. Zack WILL NOT do individual testing outside of these testing dates.
4-H Family Livestock Family Nomination
Tagging in Osage County will be recorded differently this year. To eliminate the problem of mistaken tag numbers between siblings, there will be “Family Tagging.” A form, available on the District’s 4-H website under “Osage Events & Information” must be filled out. Read the form carefully! Each family will be required to bring one completed form to weigh-in. Form information will be confirmed by the Office.
NOTE: During registration at the fair weigh-in, the family must declare what child is showing which animal. Once declared, the child will be linked to that animal for the duration of the fair. This will ensure Livestock Fairbook Rules are followed by individual 4-H members (i.e. No exhibitor may show more than two animals in any one class.). Records will not be kept from one fair to the next. This will allow different members to show different animals at different fairs. Please contact the Extension Office with any questions. We want this to go as smoothly as possible for all Osage County Livestock families.
Goat, Swine, Sheep Weigh In
The ownership deadline for all Rabbits and Fowl was May 1, 2018.
