In an effort to prevent the spread of H5N2 avian influenza, live poultry will not be exhibited at the Cherry County Fair this year. 4-Hers in the poultry project have few options to still continue to “show” their poultry.
- Showmanship – video your showmanship presentation and upload it to You Tube. Send a link of your presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, August 3rd. These showmanship videos will be played for the judge at the small animal show during the County Fair. Exhibitors will need to be present at the show. Ribbons and trophies will be awarded. Submit your fair pre-entry (just like always) by July 20.
- Presentation – this will replace the classes outline in the Fairbook. Create a poster presentation to be given during the Small Animal Show on either Avian Influenza or about your flock. Presentations should be 3 to 5 minutes long. Learn more about presentations on page 16 of the Fairbook. Information regarding avian influenza can be found at http://4h.unl.edu/nebraska4hnews. Ribbons and trophies will be awarded. Submit your fair pre-entry (just like always) by July 20.
