Cattle Stalling

No Exceptions. Must follow procedure! Stalling Done on A First Entered, First Stalled Basis. Those Entering late will have to check in the guard shack for stalling assignments.

We will strictly adhere to this policy. It is impossible to stall individuals together who enter separately and at different times. If you wish to stall in a particular place in the barn submit your entries early. The earlier an entry is submitted, the more likely your request will be fulfilled.

Guidelines:

  1. Any group wishing to stall together must send all of their entries in at one time and together. A cover letter should list the exhibitors who wish to stall together and the number of animals that each exhibitor has entered and any other information which you consider pertinent.
  2. Entries sent in separately will be stalled separately.
  3. Exhibitors who are requesting certain spots in the barn should include a letter with their entries explaining where they wish to be stalled and a diagram which shows the approximate spaces all over the fairgrounds. A letter must accompany the entries of the people who wish to be stalled together.
