Teachers and Agents,

The Okefenokee Agricultural Fair in Waycross is considering allowing
livestock entries from outside its traditional 13 county area. The fair
leadership committee is trying to determine the interest across the state
in entering the various livestock shows. This year's fair will be Nov.
12-16. Here are the basic dates for the various shows:

   - Hogs arrive on Sunday, Nov. 10 and show on Tuesday Nov. 12
   - Cattle can arrive on either Sunday Nov. 10 or Thursday, Nov. 14.
   Cattle Show is Saturday, the 16th.
   - Goats arrive on Thursday, Nov. 14 and show on the 16th.

The fair does provide free feeding services for those needing it.

If you have students who would be interested in attending, please complete
the survey by Thursday morning.
