The 2014 Fair Season is upon us! The Washington County Fair continues to change to make the fair experience even better for the fair exhibitor and fair goer. Please make sure that you read this Exhibitor handbook closely as there are changes in many areas. A quick overview of some of the changes:  Those exhibitors who do ALL of their entries online will receive a day pass as a thank you for using the system. This can be picked up from the entry office during our office hours the weekend judging begins. Check times in the Entry Tag/Report section of Fair Facts and Details.  New classes have been added and old classes removed in some of our departments. You need to make sure you follow guidelines.  There are changes in the times of shows in some departments. This may include day of show as well as times. READ CAREFULLY. Among others, check Department 101, 5, and 105 for these changes.  The IAFE Code of Ethics is included on the back of this page. Please read and be aware of the consequences.  Swine exhibitors should check the following link for PED advisory: www.agriculture.ny.gov/AI/PED_Advisory_for_NY_Fairs_Exhibitors.pdf

Enjoy preparing for the fair. See you at the Fair - August 18-24, 2014!


NATIONAL CODE OF SHOW RING ETHICS IAFE (INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FAIRS AND EXPOSITIONS) Exhibitors of animals at livestock shows shall at all times conduct 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 drugs. 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 culminates with the animal entering the food chain, shall not be administered drugs other than in accordance with applicable federal, state and provincial statues, regulations and rules. Livestock shall not be exhibited if the drugs administered in accordance with federal, state and provincial statutes, regulations and rules affect the animal’s performance or appearance at the event. If the laboratory report on the chemical 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 approved 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 owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person to prove otherwise at any hearing in regard to the matter conducted by the fair or livestock show. At any time after an animal arrives on the fair or livestock show premises, all treatments involving the use of drugs and/or medications 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, conformation, 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 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 person shall direct abusive or threatening conduct toward them. 8. No owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person 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 any disciplinary action taken by the fair or livestock show against such individuals published in any publication of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, including Fairs and Expositions and any special notices to members. 11. The act of entering 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 statutes, regulations, or rules may be released to appropriate law enforcement authorities with jurisdiction over such infractions.

Consequence: Forfeiture of premiums and future exhibition may result for violating this rule.

The rules of the Washington County Fair, Inc. meet the Standards for the Conduct of Fairs as set forth by the State of New York Dept. of Agriculture and Markets. If the rules of this Fair exceed the State regulations, the rules of this Fair will apply. The Washington County Fair management reserves the final and absolute right to interpret these rules and regulations and arbitrarily settle and determine matters, questions and differences in regard to, or otherwise arising out of, connected with, or incident to the Fair. The management reserves the right to amend/add to these rules/regulations as its judgment may be deemed visable. Any person who violates any of the following rules and regulations or any special rules or regulations shall forfeit all privileges and awards and be subject to such penalty as the management may order. The management encourages the reporting of mistreatment or extortion by concessionaires and any discourtesy or irregularity of its employees. Violations of local, state, or federal laws should be reported promptly.

Care of Livestock: Attendants MUST be with livestock AT ALL TIMES. To properly promote agriculture & educate the public on animal welfare, it is essential that all exhibitors provide proper sustenance, food & drink, at least every 12 hours to all animals housed on the fairgrounds. Further, pursuant to NYS Agriculture & Markets Law, Article 26, Section 353, states “A person who…deprives any animal of necessary sustenance, food or drink, or neglects to furnish it sustenance or drink or unjustifiably injured, maimed, mutilated or killed, or to be deprived of necessary food or drink, or willfully sets afoot, instigates, engages in, or in any way furthers any act of cruelty, is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, or by a fine of not more than one (1) thousand dollars, or by both.” Additionally, Section 373 states “Any such police officer or agent may also lawfully take possession of any animal in or upon any premises other than a street, road, or public place, which for more than twelve (12) successive hours has been confined or kept in a crowded or 6


unhealthy condition or in unhealthful or unsanitary surroundings or not properly cared for or without necessary sustenance, food or drink, provided that a complaint stating just and reasonable grounds is made under oath or affirmation to any magistrate authorized to issue warrants in criminal cases, and that such warrant authorizing entry and search is issued and delivered by such magistrate; if just and reasonable cause is shown, the magistrate shall immediately issue such warrant.” It is the responsibility of each exhibitor to properly feed & water their animals, at a minimum, once every 12 hours. Failure to do so may result in the removal of the exhibit and the appropriate authorities may be sought for assistance. As the above law indicates, this may result in seizure of your animals and possible imprisonment. Display of Exhibits and Animals: Exhibitors must show their exhibits whenever and in such manner as required by the superintendent in charge of the Department. All displays, exhibits & animals, must remain in place until the close of the Fair unless being exhibited at NY State Fair, yearling and aged rams and those approved by the NYS Veterinary for health concerns. Forfeiture of premiums and future exhibition may result for violating this rule. IAFE Code of Ethics will be followed. Abusers may be denied exhibiting in the future. All exhibits not called for by 6:00 p.m. Monday, August 25 are left at the owner's risk and, unless otherwise arranged for, shall be forfeited to the fair, which may dispose of them as it wishes. The Fair management reserves the right to change the hour of release if conditions warrant.

Animal Identification • Cattle, sheep, goats, swine, and deer/elk must be identified by USDA approved official identification. Cattle, swine and deer/elk must be identified by official ear tag. Sheep and goats must be identified by official scrapie identification (see sheep and goat sections below). Llamas and alpacas can be identified by ear tag or microchip approved by the Department of Agriculture and Markets. A sketch or photograph signed and dated by an accredited veterinarian is also acceptable identification for llamas and alpacas. Misc. ruminants must be identified by Department of Agriculture and Markets approved identification. • NOTE: A complete written description is sufficient identification for horses entering New York accompanied by a CVI. The description must match the EIA test record. Horse sketches & descriptions should reference color pattern, hair whorls, chestnuts, scars & other markings as necessary to uniquely identify the horse. Tattoos & microchips if any should be included. “Bay,no markings” is not an acceptable description for CVI or EIA test record. Rabies Vaccination • Rabies vaccination is required for all species for which there is a USDA licensed vaccine available (cattle, horses, sheep, dog, cat, ferret) and that are 4 months of age or older on the date of admission to the fair. • Vaccine must have been administered within the past 12 months. The exception is Imrab LA vaccine used in sheep which protects for 3 years after the second annual vaccination (consult your veterinarian). • The rabies vaccination requirement must be met on the day of admission even if the animal was previously admitted to a fair when too young to vaccinate. • NOTE: Individual fairs can require animals for which there is no approved rabies vaccine to be vaccinated for rabies. The requirements outlined above would apply. The fair is responsible for notifying exhibitors. The New York State Fair requires rabies vaccination for all livestock species entering the grounds. Acceptable Proof of Rabies Vaccination • Acceptable proof of rabies vaccination must include a signed written statement from the veterinarian administering the vaccine or a valid certificate of veterinary inspection that has the vaccination listed and is signed by the Category 2 accredited veterinarian. • Acceptable proof of vaccination must include the name of the product used, the date of administration and the duration of immunity if longer than one year. • If the statement of rabies vaccination is included on an EIA test record, it must be signed separately in addition to the required EIA test record signature. • NOTE: Rabies titers are not acceptable proof of rabies protection and cannot be used to meet entry requirements. • Acceptable proof of vaccination for dogs is a valid vaccination certificate or a copy of the dog license that contains the rabies vaccination information. BVD-PI Testing • All cattle, llamas and alpacas exhibited at NY county fairs or the State Fair must be negative to an approved test appropriate to detect Bovine Viral Diarrhea persistent infection (BVD-PI). This is a once in a lifetime test that must be reported on the required certificate of veterinary inspection. The issuing veterinarian is responsible for verifying the validity of the test, the identification of the animal and recording the test date on the CVI. If a previous test is not verifiable the test must be repeated. Cattle Testing: • Currently acceptable BVD tests for cattle less than 61 days old: o Skin notch Antigen Capture ELISA (ACE) or Immunohistochemistry (IHC) o whole blood virus isolation o whole blood PCR •

Currently acceptable BVD tests for cattle 61 days of age and older: o Skin notch Antigen Capture ELISA (ACE) or Immunohistochemistry (IHC) o Serum or milk Antigen Capture ELISA (ACE) o Whole blood virus isolation o Whole blood, serum or plasma PCR Note: The NYS Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Cornell University can conduct PCR testing on pools of up to 10 cattle. Llama / Alpaca • Currently Acceptable BVD tests: o PCR o Whole blood virus isolation Note: The NYS Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Cornell University can pool llama, etc. samples for PCR testing as follows: Animals less than 61 days of age can be tested in pools of 2 animals, whole blood only. Animals 61 days of age and older can be tested in pools of 5 animals using whole blood, serum or plasma. 10


Cleaning and Disinfection • All buildings on the fairgrounds housing animals must be cleaned and disinfected prior to the opening of the fair and between groups of animals when housing is rotated (Section 50.2 of Agriculture and Market regulations). Kidding and Lambing • Due to the concern about the spread of scrapie, any sheep or goats that are exhibited at a county fair that have recently given birth or have a vaginal discharge, will be ordered removed along with their offspring. • The causative agent for scrapie may be present in high concentration in fluids associated with birth and the risk of transmission is considered highest at that time. Commingling of Sheep and Cattle • Due to the potential spread of malignant catarrhal fever from sheep to cattle, it is recommended that cattle be kept separate from sheep. Commingling of Swine and Poultry • Due to the potential spread of influenza viruses it is recommended that swine and poultry be housed in separate locations. Isolation on Returning Home • The owner or custodian shall keep show animals biologically separate from the herd or flock for a period of at least two weeks after returning to the premises of origin. If any illness is noted in the exhibition animals the owner should contact their veterinarian immediately.

PREPARATION FOR THE FAIR • Contagious Diseases: All animals must be free from contagious disease. Examples of contagious diseases for which animals have been denied entry or rejected from fairs include the following: ringworm, warts, mange, sore mouth, respiratory infection and contagious hoof infections. ANY animal becoming ill during the fair shall be treated at the owner’s expense by a private veterinary practitioner. Said owner is required to notify both the barn superintendent and the overall superintendent (4-H Agriculture Educator) for youth. For open class situations the barn superintendent and the fair office is to be notified. A situation report will then be filled out detailing the situation. Those details should include what measures were taken by the owner, the fair and the State Veterinarians in regard to the animal. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. • Animal Identification: Animals must be uniquely identified. Acceptable identification allows positive matching of the animals to all accompanying documents including papers with laboratory test results and vaccination 12


statements. If a sketch or photograph is to be used for official identification of an animal, the sketch or photograph must contain the signature of the attending veterinarian and date. Horse sketches and descriptions should reference color pattern, hair whorls, chestnuts, scars and other markings. Llama drawings, as for horses, must positively identify the individual animal. A name or a statement of color without additional distinguishing features or manmade identification is not acceptable identification. •

Follow Drug and Vaccine Withholding Times: In order to prevent the contamination of food products, labeled withholding times should be strictly adhered to in food producing animals that have been treated with any chemical (drug) or have had vaccine administered.

Isolation: In addition to the possibility that the stress of moving can result in a healthy animal becoming ill, assembling groups of animals increases the chance of exposure to contagious disease. All animals returning from a fair or show should be isolated from the herd or flock (no direct or indirect contact) for at least two weeks after returning to the premise of origin.

Proof of Vaccination: A signed, written statement from the attending veterinarian is required as proof of vaccination. A valid animal health certificate, which has the vaccination(s) listed and is signed by the issuing veterinarian, is acceptable proof of vaccination. The date of vaccination and the name of the products used must be listed on all certificates.

Reasons for Fair Entrance Denial in Past Years  Testing requirements not fulfilled  No CVI presented or animals not listed on CVI. (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection)  Test time constraints not met  Forged documents  Mange, Ringworm, Warts, Respiratory Disease or other contagious disease  Required vaccination(s) not administered  Vaccination time constraints not met  Inadequate proof of vaccination  Lack of or incomplete identification  Identification between documents varies for the same animal  Invalid Interstate Charts Disease status can change.
