Please also make note of schedule changes in regards to Goats & Lambs.  The goats will show first this year (check in on Thursday, show Friday & Saturday).  The does/ wethers will be split in the goat show (Tommy Waldrop will send an e-mail out next week with more specific information on the goat show & schedule). 

Here is a direct link to the fair schedule for some information:

Entry Deadline State Market Lamb and Goat Shows - July 10, 2011.

That is only one month from now.


If you have not ordered ear tags yet, you still have time, but you need to do it now. Our last day to ship Lamb and Goat tags is July 1.


The order form is at:


Second Reminder:  The Georgia National Fair will require you to use state tags on hogs. 


All tags this year are the same as those used last year, so leftovers from last year can be used. Tag colors are:


Sheep -red (breeding ewes and market lambs use same tag)

Goats - yellow

Hogs - orange

Beef - green (steers and heifers use same tag)

Dairy - white


Third Reminder:


The entry website is up and running.


We reset the site each year.  You will need to create an account for your county or chapter.  As you do this please make sure your contact information is correct.  We use that to print mail labels to mail you checks.


You can enter the names and addresses on your exhibitors at any time and go back closer to the deadline to enter the animal information.  If you have a large number of exhibitors that can be helpful. 


If you are having trouble with any of this please call me or e-mail me.
