FAIRFIELD — All Solano County youths who plan to show steers in the 2013 Dixon May Fair must have their animal ear-tagged at the fairgrounds on Jan. 19, 2013.
Fair guidelines required that market beef must be owned a minimum of 120 days prior to the start of the 2013 fair. Ear-tagging is from 9 a.m. to noon. All exhibitors are required to provide a bill of sale, a yellow transportation slip and proof of insurance before a steer can be tagged.
Market goat and sheep ear-tagging is slated from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 9, 2013. Tags can be picked up by 4-H leaders and Future Farmers of America advisers in late February.
The 138th annual Dixon May Fair is May 9-12, 2013. For more information, visit www.dixonmayfair.com or call 678-5529.
