Premium List and Rules
157th Warren County Free Fair Indianola, Iowa
Special Note to Exhibitors
The premium list as published will be our guide, so read all the rules and be certain you understand them when entries are made. The Executive Committee reserves the right to correct or interpret any part of the rules or premium list.
Before making your entries, notice carefully the rules and regulations governing the department in which each entry belongs, then be sure to fill out the entry form (one form may be used for all divisions), giving the correct division and class number. If possible, make your entries before the last day; this will save confusion and waiting at that time. Notice carefully the time of closing entries. Be sure to have your livestock entries in place according to the Fair and Judging schedule. Fees for changing entry after entries close will be double the entry fee. If you make an entry and decide not to show it, advise the Secretary and your entry will be taken from the Judges’ books. There is no charge for this. The Fair Management has arranged to give the patrons of the Warren County Fair the best from an educational and entertainment standpoint, with more livestock and agricultural exhibits of all kinds. The Fair Management believes that Warren County is entitled to the best. In turn, they have confidence that you will support their efforts by your attendance and cooperation, for which they thank you sincerely. —Jo Ellen Reynolds, Secretary (Please refer to the Index on the last page of this book.)

Exception: Service dogs and 4-H/FFA dogs on leash for Monday show
As of November 2001, it has become necessary to make a change to our policies and procedures for the livestock auction. These changes have come about due to a complaint from one person that was made to the Federal Stockyards and Packers Commission regarding the timeliness of checks being available to exhibitors. Because of this complaint, we must speed up the collection and payment process. Checks must be issued to market livestock exhibitors whether money has been collected from the buyers or not. In order to comply with federal requirements we must make checks available one week following the sale. The checks will be made available to exhibitors on Monday, August 5th. (We will be billing quicker, thus we will make a note on the invoices to buyers that we are complying with federal regulations and that we would appreciate prompt payment.) The lag time between collection and payment will necessitate the fair establishing a line of credit to cover exhibitor’s checks. THE FAIR WILL BE COLLECTING A 1.5% COMMISSION ON ALL MARKET ANIMALS GOING THROUGH THE AUCTION. The 1.5% commission covers: * Administrative expenses (computer program, overtime costs,etc.) * Interest expenses (for line of credit) * Indemnity fund expenses (covers uncollected market auction debts.) * Buyer’s breakfast * Newspaper ad (prior to complaint, these expenses were deducted from check.)
19. Warren County Produced Eligibility Statement:
(copies available from fair secretary) Animals must be born, produced and raised in Warren County. Producer must be a resident of Warren County. Animal must be purchased directly from Warren County producers.
20. Retag Procedure:
A market beef superintendant must be present at the time of a retag to witness, reinstall tag, and obtain signatures on a triplicate form with one copy going to the Extension office, Fair office and Exhibitor.
The beef, swine and sheep check-off will be collected as usual. The fair regrets this decision, but the federal requirement has taken this situation out of our control. This commission collection will include cattle, swine, sheep, goats and poultry.
IAFE (International Association of Fairs and Expositions) National Code of Show Ring Ethics*
If the laboratory report on the analysis of saliva, urine, blood, or other sample taken from livestock indicates the presence of forbidden drugs or medication, this shall be prima facie evidence such substance has been administered to the animal either internally or externally. It is presumed that the sample of urine, saliva, blood, or other substance tested by the laboratory to which it is sent is the one taken from the animal in question, its integrity is preserved and all procedures of said collection and preservation, transfer to the laboratory and analysis of the sample are correct and accurate and the report received form the laboratory pertains to the sample taken from the animal in question and correctly reflects the condition of the animal at the time the sample wastaken, with the burden on the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person to prove otherwise. At any time after an animal arrives on the fair or livestock show premises, all treatments involving the use of drugs and/ or medications for the sole purpose of protecting the health of the animal shall be administered by a licensed veterinarian. 5. Any surgical procedure or injection of any foreign substance or drug or the external application of any substance (irritant, counterirritant, or similar substance) which could affect the animal’s performance or alter its natural contour, confirmation, or appearance, except external applications of substances to the hoofs or horns of animals which affect appearance only and except for surgical procedures performed by a duly licensed veterinarian for the sole purpose of protecting the health of the animal, is prohibited. 6. The use of showing and/or handling practices or devices such as striking animals to cause swelling, using electrical contrivance, or other similar practices are not acceptable and are prohibited. 7. Direct criticism or interference with the judge, fair or livestock show management, other exhibitors, breed representatives, or show officials before, during, or after the competitive event is prohibited. In the furtherance of their official duty, all judges, fair and livestock show management, or other show officials shall be treated with courtesy, cooperation and respect and no personal shall direct abusive or threatening conduct toward them. 8. No owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible personal shall conspire with another person or persons to intentionally violate this code of ethics or knowingly contribute or cooperate with another person or persons either by affirmative action or inaction to violate this code of ethics. Violation of this rule shall subject such individual to disciplinary action. 9. The application of this code of ethics provides for absolute responsibility for an animal’s condition by an owner, exhibitor, fitter trainer, or participant whether or not he or she was actually instrumental in or had actual knowledge of the treatment of the animal in contravention of this code of ethics. 10. The act of entering an animal is the giving of consent by the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person to have disciplinary action taken by the fair or livestock show for violation of this Code of Show Ring Ethics and any other rules of competition of the fair or livestock show without recourse against the fair or livestock show. The act of
Exhibitors of animals at livestock show shall at all times deport themselves with honesty and good sportsmanship. Their conduct in this competitive environment shall always reflect the highest standards of honor and dignity to promote the advancement of agricultural education. This code applies to junior as well as open class exhibitors who compete in structured classes of competition. This code applies to all livestock offered in any event at a livestock show. In addition to the “IAFE National Code of Show Ring Ethics”, fairs and livestock shows may have rules and regulations which they impose on the local, county, state, provincial and national levels. All youth leaders working with junior exhibitors are under an affirmative responsibility to do more than avoid improper conduct or questionable acts. Their moral values must be so certain and positive that those younger and more pliable will be influenced by their fine example. Owners, exhibitors, fitters, trainers and absolutely responsible persons who violate the code of ethics will forfeit premiums, awards and auction proceeds and shall be prohibited from future exhibition in accordance with the rules adopted by the respective fairs and livestock shows. Exhibitors who violate this code of ethics demean the integrity of all livestock exhibitors and should be prohibited from competition at all livestock shows in the United States and Canada. The following is a list of guidelines for all exhibitors and all livestock in competitive events: 1. All exhibitors must present, upon request of fair and livestock show officials, proof of ownership, length of ownership and age of all animals entered. Misrepresentation of ownership, age, or any facts relating thereto is prohibited. 2. Owners, exhibitors, fitters, trainers, or absolutely responsible persons shall provide animal health certificates from licensed veterinarians upon request by fair or livestock show officials. 3. Junior exhibitors are expected to care for and groom their animals while at fairs or livestock shows. 4. Animals shall be presented to show events where they will enter the food chain free of violative drug residues. The act of entering an animal in a livestock show is the giving of consent by the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer and/or absolutely responsible person for show management to obtain any specimens of urine, saliva, blood, or other substances from the animal to be used in testing. Animals not entered in an event which culminated with the animal entering the food chain shall not be administered drugs other than in accordance with applicable federal, state and provincial statutes, regulations and rules. Livestock shall not be exhibited if the drugs administered in accordance with federal, state and provincial statues, regulations and rules affect the animal’s performance or appearance at the event.
IOWA YOUTH CODE OF ETHICS
entering an animal is the giving of consent that any proceedings or disciplinary action taken by the fair or livestock show may be published with the name of the violator or violators in many publication of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, including Fairs and Expositions and any special notices to members. 11. The act of entering of an animal in a fair or livestock show is the giving of verification by the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person that he or she has read the IAFE National Code of Show Ring Ethics and understands the consequences of and penalties provided for actions prohibited by the code. It is further a consent that any action which contravenes these rules and is also in violation of federal, state, or provincial statues, regulations, or rules may be released to appropriate law enforcement authorities with jurisdiction over such infractions.
Youth are expected to be sincere, honest and act in sportsmanlike ways at all times. Youth represent the entire program and their behavior reflects on their parents, leaders, club and the entire youth program. All adults involved with the youth program, leaders as well as parents, are expected to set positive examples and serve as positive role models by what they say and do. Any youth who breaks the code of ethics or allows another person (adult or peer) to talk them into violating the code of ethics agrees to forfeit all prizes, awards and premiums. The youth may also be prohibited from exhibiting at this and future exhibitions including the Iowa State Fair and other county, state or regional exhibitions. Youth agree to follow these guidelines: 1. I will do my own work, appropriate for my age and physical and mental development. This includes research and writing of exhibit explanations, preparing exhibits (such as sewing, cooking, refinishing, etc.), care and grooming of animals, etc. Adult assistance should help guide and support me, not do it for me. 2. All exhibits will be a true representation of my work. Any attempt to take credit for otherâ€™s work, alter the conformation of animals, or alter their performance is prohibited. Copyright violation or allowing others to complete your exhibit is considered misrepresentation and is prohibited. 3. I will treat all people and animals with respect. I will provide appropriate care for animals. 4. I will present exhibits that are safe for consumption. All food exhibits will be safe to exhibit and for judges to evaluate. Other exhibits will be safe for judges to evaluate and for exhibition. 5. All food animals that may be harvested immediately following the show shall be safe for consumers, and shall have met all withdrawal times for all medications, and be free of violative drug residue. 6. If any animal requires medical treatment while at the fair or exhibition, only a licensed veterinarian may administer the treatment. All medications that are administered shall be done according to the label instructions of the medication used. 7. My animalâ€™s appearance or performance shall not be altered by any means, including medications, external applications and surgical procedures. Any animal that is found to have changed its appearance or its performance shall be disqualified from the show, and have penalties assessed against the exhibitor, parent and/or guardian by the management of the fair or exhibition. 8. I will follow all ownership and possession rules and, if requested, will provide the necessary documentation. 9. I will follow all livestock health requirements for this fair or exhibition, according to the state health requirements as printed in the premium book of the fair or exhibition. I will provide animal health certificates from a licensed veterinarian upon request from the management of the fair or exhibition.
*This Code of Ethics was adopted at the Association of Iowa Fairs, Inc. convention in December 2002, and revised in December of 2003. We, as members of the association, are printing it in our Fairbook as a Guideline for conduct. All rules and decisions, whether General and/or Specific, of the Warren County Fair take precedence.
10. By my entering an animal in this fair or exhibition, I am giving consent to the management of the fair or exhibition to obtain any specimens of urine, salvia, blood, or other substances from the animal to be used in testing. If the laboratory report on the analysis of any sample indicates a presence of forbidden drugs, this shall be evidence such substance has been administered to the animal either internally or externally. It is presumed that the sample tested by the laboratory to which it is sent is the one taken from the animal in question, its integrity is preserved and all procedures of said collection and preservation, transfer to the laboratory and analysis of the sample are correct and accurate and the report received from the laboratory pertains to the sample taken from the animal in question and correctly reflects the condition of the animal at the time the sample was taken, with the burden on the exhibitor, parent and/or guardian to prove otherwise. 11. I am responsible for my exhibit and I will not allow others to violate this code on my behalf. By my entering an exhibit in this fair or exhibition I will accept any disciplinary action taken by the management of this fair or exhibition for any violation of this code of ethics and any other rules of competition of the fair or exhibition without recourse against the fair or exhibition. 12. I want my exhibit to be an example of how to accept what life has to offer both, good and not so good, and how to live with and learn from the outcome. 13. I will not be involved in any illegal activities while participating in 4-H and FFA events, including but not limited to alcohol, tobacco or drug use. I agree to conduct myself in an honest, ethical, and upstanding manner and I understand that disciplinary actions will result if these rules are violated. I understand that I am expected to represent the program in a positive manner. I have read, understand and agree to follow this code of ethics, and any other rules of competition of the fair or exhibition as printed in its premium book. Exhibitor’s Signature (Required)

4-H and FFA Livestock Exhibiting Rules
Objectives of 4-H/FFA Livestock Shows
The General Rules and Livestock Rules, as printed in this premium list, will apply in all cases unless exceptions are printed under department headings. Competition in this department is limited to 4-H and FFA members properly enrolled in Warren County 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters. In order to show at the Warren County Fair, the Fairboard requires that all FFA members and projects shall comply with the same regulations as 4-H members and projects. No animal project will be shown in Warren County 4-H/FFA division that has been or will be shown in another county fair in 4-H/FFA division the same year. All livestock exhibitors (except horse exhibitors) are to wear a collared, sleeved, tucked in shirt or an official 4-H/ FFA t-shirt tucked in, into the show ring. All animals (except Market Beef and Advanced Cattle Feeders) must have been identified on their specific 4-H Identification Report, which was on file at the County Extension Office by May 15. Market Beef must have been identified on the Market Beef Identification Form (4H106-bi) and on file in the County Extension Office by February 1. Removing or remedying physical defects by any artificial means in animals exhibited will be considered as fraud and deception. Any attempt to improve the showing quality of an animal by artificial means (other than castration or grooming) will not be allowed. All animals showing evidence of such treatment will be barred from exhibition. For clarification, check with project Superintendent or the Fair Secretary. All livestock must be shown by the member identifying the project except in case of sickness, injury, service in the Armed Forces, or when more than one animal is being exhibited at the same time. The substitute must be another eligible Warren County 4-H Club or FFA Chapter member. Any and all other exceptions must be approved by all respective division Superintendents. Any 4-H/FFA project removed from the County Fair without official permission of the Fair Executive Committee will automatically disqualify that 4-H/FFA member from entering the County 4-H/FFA competition the following year, and all 4-H/FFA premiums due that member in any 4-H/FFA division for the current year will be forfeited. In classes where no livestock merits first award, the Judges will award premiums from second place down. Showmanship contests are held during the various livestock shows under the supervision of the Superintendents. Ribbons and/or trophies will be awarded depending upon the livestock division. Any situation arising, relative to 4-H Club and FFA exhibits not covered in the rules, or in case of a conflict or misunderstanding, the final authority for the interpretation rests with a board of two members of the executive committee, two members of the county Extension Youth Committee, one FFA advisor, one county Extension staff member, and the superintendent of the division in which the dispute developed. All 4-H/FFA male market animals must be physically castrated. No chemical castration allowed.
1. To be consistent with the overall purposes of 4-H club and FFA work and the 4-H/FFA livestock program. 2. To acquaint the public with the 4-H/FFA Programs. 3. To provide individual members with appropriate recognition for their achievements. 4. To provide group experiences that will help participants develop appropriate attitudes, understandings and abilities in working with others. 5. To help young people develop an appreciation for the dignity of work and the satisfaction from a job well done. 6. To develop the ability to recognize and appreciate desirable livestock. 7. To develop an appreciation for proper preparation and presentation in selling an article or service, and to provide an opportunity to apply skills related thereto. 8. To provide an opportunity for 4-H club members and FFA chapter members to learn and understand marketing principles and procedures. 4-H and FFA Herdsmanship Exhibitors of livestock are expected to maintain their quarters as orderly as possible, and must keep that part of the building occupied by them neat and attractive in appearance at all times. Herdsmanship Judging will be conducted Friday, Saturday and Sunday by a committee. Clubs will be given a numerical score, 0-100, each day as determined by the committee. The scores will be posted beside the 4-H Office on the Fairgrounds. Each clubâ€™s score will be tallied on Sunday afternoon, and appropriate ribbons will be given at 4-H Family Night. Scores will be based on: Cleanliness of alleys, stalls and pens, arrangement of exhibit, appearance of animals, attendant on duty, and decorations (first day only).

To be eligible for exhibition, market pigs must weigh at least 210 pounds at the time of weigh-ins.

Market pigs not weighing at least 210 pounds must go immediately to slaughter or taken home. Exhibitors must designate to the Superintendents immediately after weighing, and before leaving the weigh-in area (show ring), which animals are to be shown as individuals and as pens-of-three in each market division and which gilts, if any, are to be shown as a breeding gilt. The pigs, Market and Breeding, will be divided by weight into approximately equal classes. Fair entries will be made by number of pigs and not by the gender of the market pigs. A Breeding Gilt entry may be made without designating specific gilt. All Market division swine weighing 210 pounds or more can be sold at the auction and sent directly to a slaughter establishment from the exhibition. No pigs can be sold in the Auction that have not been exhibited. Breeding gilts will NOT be sold in the Market Pig Auction. They may be taken home, moved to a purchaser’s herd, or taken to slaughter by the exhibitor. The superintendents need to know where those Breeding Gilts are being taken.

Darcy Baker 2012
Warren County State Fair Queen Hi, my name is Darcy Baker, the 2012 Warren Country Fair Queen. I am the daughter of Steve Baker and Becky Victor-Baker. I also have an older sister, Dana Baker. It was a huge honor to represent Warren County this past year. I had such a blast being more involved in the Warren County Fair, getting to know everyone and then continuing on to compete at the State Fair Queen Contest. I made so many great friends at the state level and it was an experience I will never forget. I wish I could do it again . I recently finished my first year at Central College in Pella, Iowa. I am majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. At Central College, I am also a member of the dance team and the community choir. Plus in my first year I achieved being named to the Dean’s List at Central College. I graduated from Indianola High School in 2012 where I was involved in many activities. I was a member of the Impulse Dance Team (4 yrs.), varsity football cheerleading (4 yrs.), competition cheerleading squad (4 yrs.), band (4 yrs.), choir (4 yrs.), color guard (4 yrs.), service corp. (4 yrs.), student council (3 yrs.), National Honor Society (2 yrs.), school musicals (2 yrs.), orchestra (2 yrs.), and the National Council of Youth Leadership (1 yr.). I had a great high school experience and as you can tell loved to be involved in activities.

I was a member of The White Oak Climbers 4-H club for nine years and last year was my final year of 4-H. I was the club president last year and vice-president for the previous 2 years. During my nine years, I had many projects, and at the county fair I showed rabbits and horses. Something I am proud of is, my horse, Spice, and I won the title of Grand Champion Pony for our last six years, plus several other awards. The County Fair has always been something I have looked forward to every summer and it will be sad not showing this summer. I still plan to be involved in the fair but in other ways. We also showed at the Iowa State Fair. This summer will be my final year, to be able to show as a youth in the Pony of Americas Club and I plan to attend as many of the POA breed shows as possible to finish up my showing career as a youth member.

I wish all of you who are participating in the Warren County Fair this year the best of luck! I would also like to thank everyone who made this experience possible for me and thank everyone for being so nice to me during my time as the 2012 Warren County Fair Queen. This experience would not have been as enjoyable if it wasn’t for all the wonderful people of Warren County. And to all the ladies debating to run for fair queen, I strongly encourage all of you to give it a shot; it’s something you won’t regret.
