2017/2018 Youth Livestock Show Ethics and Animal Care Workshop

The Florida State Fair, along with some County Fairs throughout the State of Florida, believes that every youth exhibitor should receive proper training and information for raising and showing a youth animal project. With this in mind, the Youth Livestock Show Ethics and Animal Care Training Program was developed.

Many Fairs throughout the State are now requiring exhibitors to attend a training workshop. Check the rules, for the Fair you are attending, to see if it is required.

Information on Workshops (for the 2017/2018 Fair Season) last updated: February 21, 2018

**Please note: Even though you have attended an Ethics workshop in the past, your certification number may have expired. Be sure to check your certification number to be sure it is still valid.

All other numbers have expired and exhibitors will be required to attend a workshop.
