Guidelines for exhibitors at the Dunn County Fair have been released by the fair board.
Face coverings will be required and only household members of exhibitors will be allowed to be in attendance.
“The Dunn County Fair Board is working diligently putting in place procedures for exhibiting at the modified version of the 2020 Dunn County Fair,” the fair board said. “Keep in mind that the schedule may change as we get closer to the fair and recommendations change from the Dunn County Public Health Department.”
Animal project showing will be occurring throughout the duration of the week of the fair with poultry scheduled for Tuesday. Rabbits will be Wednesday, with dairy, llamas, cavies, small pets and cats on Thursday. Beef, goats and sheep are scheduled for Friday and swine on Saturday.
No group classes will be held for animal projects.
Exhibitors and families are to arrive on show day and provide project paperwork, along with signing in, leaving contact information and receiving a wrist band before unloading animals. Animals must be tied to trailers, in temporary pens or in cages provided by exhibitors.
Animals should undergo a complete wash prior to arriving at the fair. A quick wash of animals on the fairgrounds will be allowed.
Once animals are unloaded, exhibitors will be asked to stay with their trailer or pen and social distance from other exhibitors and their families. Following judging, all bedding, feed and garbage should be loaded back on the trailer and exhibitors are asked to leave the fairgrounds as soon as possible after showing is completed.
The swine show is terminal and swine must go to slaughter.
