Thank you for your interest in The Big Fresno Fair's Livestock Competitive Exhibits that in collaboration with regional 4-H and FFA programs help to shape tomorrow’s leaders with the hard work and dedication necessary to raise these animal projects.
The NEW deadline to submit entries for market animals is Saturday, August 15.
Questions? Please contact Terri Collins at (559) 453-6890.
Due to impacts of COVID-19, we are currently working with the Fresno County Department of Public Health on single specie per day “grade and go” exhibition format to give 4-H & FFA students the chance to have that valuable experience. We will also be holding a virtual livestock auction for the sale of all market animals. More details to be released soon!
Unfortunately, the pygmy goat show and the rabbit show will be postponed in 2020.
Bottom line, we are here for our 4-H & FFA exhibitors who are so important to us and working through viable solutions!
POULTRY SHOW INFORMATION
On January 31, 2020, we received a letter from the State Veterinarian regarding the status of the Virulent Newcastle Disease (VND), which first had an outbreak in May 2018 in Southern California among the poultry population. Due to a recent flare-up of VND in Southern California, the State Veterinarian is advising that the poultry show be cancelled given our location nearby commercial poultry facilities. You may view the State Veterinarian letter here.
This has been communicated to our 4-H and FFA leaders and advisors. For more information on Newcastle disease, please visit the California Department of Food & Agriculture’s website at: www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/newcastle_dise...
