Dear Teachers,

Georgia National Fair Livestock Show.

All livestock animals entered at the Georgia National Fair will be inspected
by the Georgia Department of Agriculture Inspectors as animals are unloaded
and before animals will be allowed to stall in the barns or tie-outs.

 No livestock will be allowed entry that shows sight or evidence of warts or
ring worm lesions. Livestock will be inspected as animals are unloaded at
the barn for infectious and contagious diseases (sight or evidence), and
those animals suspected of having disease will not be allowed to show or to
be stalled in the barns or tie-outs. They must be removed from the show
facilities. ("SEE HEALTH REQUIREMENTS")

The Georgia Department of Agriculture Inspectors will be stationed at all
barns, ensuring that inspection is carried out for all animals. Health
papers will be examine at this time.
