Don’t miss the poultry and lamb shows

The poultry show and lamb show will be highlights of the Rowan County Fair.
The poultry show will be Sept. 26-27.
The Poultry Show will be for backyard birds, both commercial (sex links) or heritage breeds. These birds may not fully adhere to all aspects of the standard. The birds will be divided into classes by the show committee. All birds must be pre-entered before being brought to the fairgrounds. The deadline to enter birds will be Sept. 15. NCDA & CS personnel will be at the fairgrounds between 10 a.m. and noon to inspect the birds and conduct a blood test. Birds must be inspected and blood tested to show at the fair. Bird numbers will be restricted to fill available coop space.
Please fill out a Livestock Entry Form.
All Birds MUST be picked up between noon-2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28.
Premiums will be, first, $5; second, $4; third, $3.
Please visit the Rowan County Fair Website for more information. http://www.rowancountyfair.net/
On Tuesday, Sept. 23, the Rowan County Fair will host the fifth annual Rowan County Exceptional Children’s Lamb Show. During this event, held in conjunction with the Rowan County Fair, special needs children will be partnered with a Rowan County livestock exhibitor and a show lamb.
After being acclimated to the animal and helper, children will learn about their show animal and learn basics of showmanship and sheep husbandry.
Then, exceptional children, assisted by their helper, will exhibit their sheep in a livestock show to earn a blue ribbon.
Rowan County has consistently maintained a high quality livestock show for beef, dairy, goat and sheep animals in the past.
The Exceptional Children’s Lamb Show began in hopes of allowing exceptional children to interact with animals, connect with other individuals, and provide a fun, unique learning environment.
Participants will arrive at 6 p.m., and the show will begin at 6:30. All participants will receive free entry to the fair along with two guests. However, all participants must pre-register.
Contact Beverly Hampton at bjhampto@ncsu.edu or call 704-819-7542 to register or answer any questions.
