2016/2017 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 2016/2017 Fair Season) last updated: February 27, 2017
