Members planning to exhibit a Beef Steer or Dairy Steer at the 2017 Holmes County Fair must have their steer weighed and tagged on December 31st at Harvest Ridge. Each member may weigh in two steers, but may only show one at the Holmes County Fair. A member’s name must be given with each animal at weigh-in. One steer may serve as a “back up” for two or more siblings, but the steer will be put in one family member’s name. For your safety and those helping with the weigh-in, it is extremely important that all calves be halter broke at the time of weigh-in.
If you know of a new member or someone who did not take a steer project last year who wishes to take a steer project in 2017, please tell them about weigh-in and have them contact the OSU Extension Office at 330-674-3015.
