Exhibiting livestock at the Buffalo County Fair requires ID sheets, Quality Assurance, Premise IDs, and Pre-fair entries (pay for bedding and carcass scan). 

ID Sheets are due June 1 except for Market Beef which are due April 15.

On January 1, 2017 a new Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation for the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) went into effect. This regulation will affect all food-producing animals –no matter how large or small the operation, including livestock used in youth livestock shows.

With the new regulation, youth must work with their veterinarian to obtain a signed VFD order before purchasing and feeding livestock with feeds containing feed grade antibiotics, such as chlortetracycline (CTC) or Tylosin.
