The contest is open to any county youth ages 8 - 18. Encourage your members and their friends to enter!
Staying overnight in the barns during the Wayne County Fair is STRONGLY discouraged. However, if a member MUST stay, then complete the form and turn it in to the Junior Fair Office by September 1st.
For 2020 - Due to COVID19 - No one will be permitted to stay overnight in the barns.
If you have serious potential buyers, have them contact the Extension Office for a pass to get in on sale days. If you are selling a market animal or showing a dairy animal you need to get out and promote the market or dairy products sales.
2019 Buyer List by Exhibitor (For looking up who bought your animal last year in case you want to invite them again this year)
Many buyers have told us that they love personal letters from the 4-H and FFA members.
A complete listing of all Jr Fair Market Livestock buyers can be found at the link below:
The document lists the exhibitors in alphabetical order, with all of their buyers and the buyers' addresses grouped along with them. Every exhibitor selling their animal(s) at the Junior Fair livestock sales MUST write a “Thank you” note to the buyer(s). Every auction participant must submit a thank you note before they receive their auction check.
The Thank You Notes/Letters must be submitted to THE EXTENSION OFFICE.
This “Thank you” note is to be delivered to the Extension Office IN A STAMPED, SEALED AND COMPLETELY ADDRESSED ENVELOPE WITH THE JR. FAIR EXHIBITORS NAME WRITTEN IN THE RETURN ADDRESS! The note itself must be brought in to the Extension Office to be checked off before mailing.
