The 70th Annual Payette County Fair and Rodeo

Aug. 10-13, 2016

Payette County Fairgrounds  New Plymouth, Idaho

 

   Welcome to the 2016 Payette County Fair and Rodeo. We are so excited this is the 70th Anniversary. Our newly adopted mission statement is “We, the Payette County Fair Board, along with dedicated volunteers, strive to provide educational opportunities, entertainment and family memories in an organized fair event and to develop a year-round public facility for all generations of our community.” Keeping this mission in mind, we have been working hard to bring you some new, fun and exciting changes to the fair. Community fairs like ours are becoming rarer these days, and we want to preserve what the county fair stands for, while continuing to grow and improve our event and facility to meet the needs of future generations. Come enjoy a day at the Fair on Saturday, Aug. 13th. We will have more games, more booths and more free music programs for everyone to enjoy. Come get out of the heat and visit with your friends in the shaded seating areas provided. We encourage people of all ages to bring exhibits for the open class divisions and showcase their talents. Check out new awards offered in the Foods, Floral, Crafts and Industrial Arts divisions. Come support the 4-H and FFA youth of this community during their shows and the Market Sale. Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who donate their time, talents and resources to making this a great Fair and Rodeo year after year. Remember to keep this Premium Book as it contains the schedule, rules, regulations and information for the Fair. Visit www.payettecountyfair.org for updated information. We hope this year’s Fair provides a memorable experience for all those involved. See you there!

f. Dairy – 11 am to 1 pm

g. Breeding Animals (sheep, goats & beef) will bring animals at the same times set for the market species.  They must have health papers and vet check before being unloaded.

2.    The weight at this time will be the official entry weight. WEIGHTS:  SHEEP, 110; SWINE, 220; BEEF, 1,100 pounds, GOATS, 75 pounds. Underweight animals will not be sold; overweight will revert to the maximum allowed. Limit of 2 animals, same species, per exhibitor at weigh-in.  Only 1 swine per exhibitor will be allowed for the 2016 fair.

Minimum/maximum weights at spring weigh-in:  Beef:  min. 650 lbs max 1000 lbs, Swine:  min 40 lbs-max 110 lbs, Lambs: min 50 lbs max 95 lbs, Goats: min 45 lbs max 65 lbs.

For the fat stock sale, blue sky values will be calculated using the following maximum weights: Beef 1250 lbs.; Swine 260 lbs.; Sheep 130 lbs.; and Goats 90 lbs.  Exhibitors will receive market price for weight above the maximum allowed for blue sky values.

3.    Animals consigned to the sale must have an official ear tag.

4.    All beef and sheep consigned to the sale will be given a 3 percent shrink. Sheep must be slick sheared no more than 10 days before the fair.

5.    Beef must grade select or better; sheep must grade choice, and swine must grade 3 or better. Animals receiving white ribbons will not be eligible to sell.

Market Beef Carcass Contest:

Market Beef animals must meet the following criteria to qualify for the carcass contest:

1.   Be shown and sold through the market sale.

2.   Be an extra animal assigned to an exhibitor that has been shown in the quality and/or showmanship class at the Payette County Fair.

Data will be collected from all beef animals and each carcass will receive a carcass score unless they are taken by an individual where the carcass data can’t be collected.  Animals not processed locally will be sent to a participating slaughter facility in order to gather carcass data. Those animals sent to a slaughter facility will receive payment for actual carcass quality.  Therefore, exhibitors of those market animals only may receive more or may receive less than anticipated based upon the carcass quality of their market animal.  Once all data has been acquired, it will be evaluated and carcass scores determined.  Carcass contest award winners will be contacted and the prizes will be passed out at a Payette County Fair Board meeting.

6.    Beef animals must have been owned five months prior to the sale; sheep and swine three months before the sale, death excepted. The replacement is subject to the approval from the appropriate superintendent. If a spring weigh-in market animal dies before mid-point of the project, the member has the option to replace the dead animal with a replacement tagged PCF animal of the same species. A PCF tagged animal is an extra animal tagged by another FFA or 4-H member at initial weigh-in.  The mid-way point of the project is the halfway date between initial weigh-in and fair weigh-in.  This will vary between species according to the days on feed. The member must notify the species superintendent/leader/advisor or Extension office within 24 hours of death, and produce the PCF tag.  The member has seven days to replace dead animal with a replacement animal (approved and agreed to by the owner) PCF tag must be intact. Or terminate the project for the year.  The member must notify the advisor/leader/superintendent/extension staff of the replacement tag number so the list can be updated in a timely manner. If a tagged market beef dies after initial weigh-in and before the swine/sheep/market goat weigh-ins (and the member only weight in one market steer) the member will have the option to weigh in another market animal (swine/sheep/goat) at the spring weigh-in.  The member must notify the species superintendent/leader/advisor/Extension office within 24 hours of the death and produce the PCF tag in order to be eligible to weigh in another animal. Exhibitors must present proof of ownership. Brand inspection slips are required on all beef animals.

7.    Exhibitors are limited to one animal consigned to the sale.

8.    Animals must be properly trained and fitted by the exhibitor for showing either in the ring or in the sale. No tranquilizing of animals. If an animal appears suspicious, the veterinarian will perform a blood test. Tranquilized animals will be removed from the fairgrounds and not sold in the market animal sale.

9.    A Champion and Reserve Champion of Beef, Sheep and Swine will be selected for both 4-H and FFA, with an overall champion being selected in each species with both 4-H and FFA competition. The Champions and Reserve Champions must be sold in the sale.

10. Records on all animals must be up to date and available, if requested.

Due to the nationwide outbreak of the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus and recommendations from the Idaho State Veterinarian, the following revisions will be implemented for the market swine rules for 2016.

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus is highly contagious viral infection that is spread in the feces of infected animals.  It is easily spread by gathering pigs at shows and then returning home.  People that walk through pig manure can spread it from farm to farm.  It can also be as innocent as just going to town to purchase feed or supplies, coming in contact with the manure left from others shoes and then bringing it home to your animal(s).  These recommendations are for this year only and they are consistent with other county fairs around us as well as other states:

1.   Spring weigh-in will be cancelled.

2.   Each exhibitor must provide proof of ownership of their market swine project.  This must be a profile picture of their pig(s) attached to a signed waiver form and turned into the respective UI Extension office or FFA advisor by May 13, 2016.

3.   Exhibitors will be allowed to submit pictures and waivers for two animals per exhibitor or one additional animal per family but will be allowed to bring only one market pig per exhibitor to the county fair.  Extra pigs must remain home and will not be weighed.

4.   Market pigs will be identified/tagged during weigh-in at the Payette County Fair.

5.   The swine breeding show will be cancelled for this year.

6.   The swine show will be considered “terminal”.  Every pig brought to the fair will go to slaughter at the end of the fair.  This includes pigs that did not make weight and were shown as feeders.  In the past these pigs were allowed to go home, this year they will not.  Feeder pigs will be taken to the butcher under the exhibitor’s names. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to make arrangements for processing or sale of their underweight pig.

7.   All pigs will be hauled by the Market Livestock Sale Committee, no self or owner pick-up will be allowed.

F. POULTRY, PIGEONS AND DOVES-Must be sound, in good health and free from communicable disease. They must be free from lice and mites. Out of state poultry must meet Idaho import requirements.

G. RABBITS AND CAVIES-Must be sound, in good health and free from communicable diseases.

H. HORSES-All horses must be sound, in good health and free from communicable disease. Horses under 3 years, are encouraged to be Strangles and West Nile vaccinated and for Encephalitis, Tetanus, Influenza and Rhino at least 2 months prior to entering.

HERDSMANSHIP GUIDELINES

Care of livestock animals will be consistent with production practices and accepted standards. Exhibitors are encouraged to follow the guidelines listed below. REMEMBER that you are proud to show your animal at its best. Please show our fairgoers that all of our exhibits are purple ribbon winners.

   1. Stalls and pens should have sawdust or straw for bedding. Bedding should be kept clean and dry at all times. All stalls and pens should be kept in sanitary condition. All livestock pens should be cleaned by 8:00 a.m. each morning and by 6:00 p.m. each evening by the exhibitor.

   2. Exhibitor cards identifying projects are available in the Fair Office. Decorations are acceptable and encouraged.

   3. General Herdsman ship Guides:

       BEEF & DAIRY: Straw or sawdust should be used to bed all beef and dairy animals. Bedding should be kept fresh; wet straw and manure should be promptly removed. Water should not be placed in the stall areas. Water troughs are available outside the barns. Feed troughs should be removed when animals are done feeding. Animals should be kept clean and groomed while on display at the Fair. Grooming and washing should be done in the designated washing and grooming areas outside the exhibit barns.

       SWINE: Keep all wet areas cleaned in the pen. Large feed troughs, fence feeders and water barrels are prohibited. Pigs can be fed and watered in shallow feed pans. Remove all feed and water when animals have finished feeding. Do not leave water with pigs; they will only spill it and make a mess. Wash racks are available for washing animals. Trimming of tails and ears is unnecessary for most feeder and market hogs. Depending upon the type of animal, trimming it may be beneficial for breeding stock.

       SHEEP AND GOATS: Pens should be kept free of all manure. Blankets are recommended for ease of keeping lambs clean. Feeds should be in pans or feeders.

       RABBITS AND POULTRY: Provide ample fresh water and feed in sturdy pans. In extremely hot weather, keep cage shaded. Keep locks on pens for security. Check pens regularly.

DIVISION A - CANNED FOODS

Chairman – Debbie Molthen, New Plymouth

For Safety’s Sake:

Pressure canning is the only recommended method for canning meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables.  The bacterium Clostridium botulinum is destroyed in low-acid foods when they are processed at the correct time and pressure in pressure canners.  Using boiling water canners for these foods poses a real risk of botulism poisoning.

If Clostridium botulinum bacteria survive and grow inside a sealed jar of food, they can produce a poisonous toxin.  Even a taste of food containing this toxin can be fatal.  Boiling food 10 minutes at altitudes below 1,000 ft destroys this poison when it is present.  For altitudes at and above 1,000 ft, add 1 additional minute per 1000 ft additional elevation.  Caution:   To prevent the risk of botulism, low-acid and tomato foods not canned according to the recommendations in this publication or according to other USDA-endorsed recommendations should be boiled as above, even if you detect no signs of spoilage.  All low-acid foods canned according to the approved recommendations may be eaten without boiling them when you are sure of all the following:

     1.  Food was processed in a pressure canner.

     2.  Gauge of the pressure canner was accurate.

     3.  Up-to-date researched process times and pressures were used for the size of jar, style of pack, and kind of food being canned.

     4.  The process time and pressure recommended for sterilizing the food at your altitude was followed.

     5.  Jar lid is firmly sealed and concave.

Determining Your Altitude above Sea Level

It is important to know your approximate elevation or altitude above sea level in order to determine a safe processing time for canned foods.  Since the boiling temperature of liquid is lower at higher elevations, it is critical that additional time be given for the safe processing of foods at altitudes above sea level.   If you are unsure about the altitude where you will be canning foods, consult your county extension agent.
