ATTENTION LIVESTOCK EXHIBITORS:

You must complete the registration form the for species that you will be exhibiting at the fair.

The State of MN is requiring that all animals are tagged or identified and any required paperwork

is brought to the fair with the animal. Copies of any required paperwork will be made

at the fair so the documentation can remain on file with the Ag. Society. All animals except lamas may only

be shown by the owner or person that is leasing the animal, not by both.

 

OUR FEATHERED FRIENDS ARE BACK...

The 2016 Premium Book includes the Poultry and Pigeon departments.

As you will notice the Poultry department has been expanded.

The Benton County Poultry Association held their 101st poultry show

at the 2014 Benton County Fair. The Association has decided to

discontinue holding their annual shows. So for the 2016 fair,

the Benton County Agricultural Society will continue having the

poultry exhibits during the fair.

We thank the Benton County Poultry Association

for their many, many years of having their

show during the fair. We only hope that

we can continue their tradition of excellence.


Persons may enter exhibits into the following departments...
