2017 Fair Theme

Heroes & Fairytales “This is Your Fair”

The 2017 Faulkner County Fair will be the 79th event of this nature. Our success has depended mainly on the help of every organization of men and women in the county and numerous county and city officials. At the risk of leaving someone out, we especially want to express our appreciation for the assistance given to the Fair by the following: City of Conway (especially the Mayor’s office, the City Council and the Parks & Recreation Department), Faulkner County (especially the County Judge’s office, County Road Department, and Quorum Court), the Agriculture Teachers at all of the County Schools, the many 4-H volunteers, Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, Faulkner County Master Gardeners, the numerous individuals that volunteer to serve on the many Fair committees and all our exhibitors. We offer special gratitude and appreciation to the Extension Agents and staff of the Faulkner County Extension Office without whose assistance we could not conduct our annual Fair. Also, the fair board takes this opportunity to say “thank you” to every citizen of Faulkner County (especially those who attend the Fair) for your splendid cooperation in the past. With your continued help and support, Faulkner County will continue to be a “Better Place in which to live.”

Fair Fact ... On March 19, 1909, the first Faulkner County Fair Association was formed by The Conway Board of Trade under the leadership of its President, Jo Frauenthal and its Secretary, G. L. Bahner. The Fair Association Board of Directors consisted of the following: H. B. Ingram (President), Stonewall Anderson (Vice President), L. C. Holman (Secretary), B. L. Harton (Treasurer), Jo Frauenthal, S. G. Smith, and William J. Grummer. L. C. Perry was appointed the first Fair Manager, but moved from Conway in July 1909. Frank Farris was appointed to succeed him.

Once all spaces have been reserved, no more reservations will be accepted. Camper reservations will be assigned a camper space number. Campers must be located in their assigned space. • The fee for a camper space is $50 for the week.

Fair Fact ... The first Faulkner County Fair was held on Oct. 4-7, 1909, on property owned by Judge Sam Frauenthal, which was bounded on the south by Oak Street, on the west by Harkrider Street, on the north by Mill Street and on the east by Ingram. Gov. Donaghey opened the first Faulkner County Fair at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 4, 1909. The first Faulkner County Fair was a success, however in the years to follow the fair began losing money. In August of 1915 the Faulkner County Fair decided it was in the best interest not to continue with a fair.

Fair Fact ...

The first fair in 1938 was such a success that it was decided to have a county fair the next year. From 1939 through 1942, the county fair was held on S. T. Smith’s property at the northwest corner of Van Ronkle Street and Markham Street. In 1945 the County Fair was held at the Conway Airport property. In 1946 the YMBA purchased property on Robins Street from Father Anthony Lachowsky and the Faulkner County Fair was held on this property through 2009. In 2010, a new era began for the Faulkner County Fair. From its new location off Hwy. 64 to the luxury of new facilities, the Faulkner County Fair is sure to be a success for many years to come.

Faulkner County Bred Market Hog — Division 2 The Faulkner County Bred Grand or Reserve Grand will not be selected from the premium sale line up, as in past years. After the end of the Grand Champion drive and all the class winners have been lined up for the premium sale we will follow these steps in the selection: 1. If the Grand or Reserve Grand (or both) from the market show IS FC BRED, they will be awarded as placed from the show the highest placing available. Example: If the Reserve Grand is FC BRED and the Grand is not, then the Reserve Grand is the FC BRED Grand Champion. 2. If the Grand or Reserve Grand IS NOT FC BRED, we will hold a class of the highest placing FC BRED animals from each class of breed and crossbred market hogs for the selection of FC BRED Grand and Reserve Grand Market Hog. 3. The second highest class placing animal will be in the holding pen ready to drive if the animal placing above them is selected. 4. If there are no FC BRED animals that place in the top 7 plac-

ing for a class, that class will be omitted from the FC BRED drive. 5. Once the FC BRED Grand and Reserve Grand have been selected the remaining hogs will be dismissed and we will continue with the selection of the remaining sale order. 6. No points will be awarded, only ribbons will be given. 7. Sow must be owned and bred in Faulkner County. Market Hog must be born in Faulkner County to be eligible for this class. 8.

Swine Show 2016


Market Hogs — Division 3 Market Hogs will be divided into classes by weight or breed. Minimum Weight: 160 pounds — Max. Weight: 280 pounds. In 2017, we will start the Market Hog Show with the Market Breed classes. We are going to follow the State Fair format on a trial basis. We will show all recognized breed species that hold record for that breed. These entries WILL NOT be registered with their respective breed, but must follow that breed’s guidelines. Listed are the breeds that will be eligible: Berkshire, Chester White, Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace, Poland China, Spot, and Yorkshire. The following rules will be set for the breed classes. 1. There MUST be at least 7 animals of that breed to make a class. If there are not enough animals to make a class we will have an AOB (All Other Breeds) class. 2. Each class will be placed 1st through 7th just as all market classes. 3. If there is only one class for that breed,

CLASS

the Champion for that breed the champion for that breed will be awarded at the time of the class. 4. Each breed Champion and Reserve Champion will be brought back for consideration for Grand and Reserve Grand breed overall. We will line up the best 7 breed animals for sale order at the end of the Market Show. 5. Each exhibitor will be responsible for declaring their own animals breed. FCF Swine committee will not be responsible for making that decision for you. 6. If you declare your animal to be of a breed and the judge feels your animal does not follow that breed’s characteristics you may be disqualified from that class. The judge’s decision is final. 7. The Faulkner County Fair Swine Committee reserves the right to amend these rules as needed to benefit the show or exhibitors. Market Show line-up will be as follows: 1. Breed classes will be alphabetically lined up. Example: If you have a Berkshire appear-

ing hog, you will show before a Yorkshire appearing hog will show. 2. The crossbred classes will begin following the breeding classes, and will be divided by weight from 160 to 280 lbs. 3. At the end of the show all class champions and breed overall champions will return to the ring for Faulkner County Fair Grand Champion Market Hog. Once the Grand has been awarded, the second-place animal from the class the Grand was chosen from will enter the ring for consideration of Reserve Grand Market Hog. Once the Reserve has been awarded any 2nd place animal will be removed from the ring, and we will begin the sale order lineup of all the champions. 4. Once the champions are done, we will hold the Faulkner County Bred if there is a need for this class to be exhibited. We will refer to the FC Bred rule to make this decision. 5. All the 2nd place animals from breeding and cross bred will then enter the ring, and we will finish the show with selecting the remainder of the sale animals.

FAULKNER COUNTY 4-H/FFA JUNIOR LIVESTOCK FOUNDATION PREMIUM AUCTION SALE The Faulkner County Premium Auction Sale is governed by the rules set forth by the Faulkner County 4H/FFA Junior Livestock Foundation. This Foundation is a separate entity from the Faulkner County Fair & Livestock Exposition, Inc. (which manages the Faulkner County Fair). This year’s Premium Auction Sale will be held on the Saturday morning of the Faulkner County Fair at 10 a.m. in the Fair show arena located in the Livestock Barn. The Sale Committee will meet on the Thursday prior to the sale, following the market sheep show to finalize the sale order; therefore, the sale order will NOT be posted prior to NOON ON Friday!

Invest in Faulkner County Youth The Faulkner County Fair encourages you to invest in our Faulkner County youth by supporting the Premium Auction Sale. Each year, 4-H and FFA members select and train animals to show at the County Fair. These animals represent a large part of the summer activities for these youth. Many hours are spent feeding, training, and grooming these animals so they will be in top condition for the county fair. Through these projects, these young people learn important life skills such as proper methods of livestock production and man-

agement, self-discipline, and sportsmanship. They develop personal pride, leadership qualities, and an understanding of the economics of agriculture. The auction is a fun event during the fair and you will not want to miss seeing the young people and their award-winning animals. Your support in making bids on these projects will contribute to helping these youth meet their obligations to pay feed bills and bank notes. Profits made will either be used to finance next year’s project, or to help with a college education. Bidding at the auction is easy. You are bidding on a bonus to be paid to the young ex-

hibitor above the market value they will receive from the processing company. Don’t worry; you will not have to take possession of the livestock. This year’s event features champion animals to include steers, hogs, lambs, meat goats, two (2) pens of broilers, champion meat rabbit pen, and champion meat rabbit single fryer. There are three ways you can support our Faulkner County Livestock Auction: 1. Bid on an animal at the Auction. 2. Donate to the Auction for a specific youth as an add-on. 3. Donate to the Auction for youth with animals that did not make the sale
