With the Georgia National Fair starting next week, I thought a few hints
that will help check-in go faster would help.

   - Always make and keep a copy of your entry forms to check on ear tags
   and tattoo at a later date
   - Check Registration papers to make sure they are in the Students name.
   - If you will be checking in several animals at one time have a list of
   tag numbers and students names to help move them on through the scale area.
   - Make sure that Ear tags and Tattoos are readable.
   - Make sure you have your health papers ready for the Dept. of
   Ag.-remember that health papers are good for 4 months.
   -  Be patient and do not break in line.
   - When finished unloading animals and equipment move your vehicle where
   others can use the space.
   - If you are in line a long time and the weather is hot keep check on
   your animals to make sure they are not getting hot.
   - Don't get mad at show officials, they are working as fast as they can.
