Due to the coronavirus and the mandate issued by the Colorado State 4H Extension Office postponing extension activities, the deadline for all Market animal nominations has been changed - ALL SPECIES nomination forms are due to Extension Offices by June 1, 2020 and to the Colorado State Fair by June 8, 2020.
Please know that the Colorado State Fair Livestock Office is monitoring the edicts coming from CSU affecting Extension Offices and will revisit nomination form deadlines if necessary.
The Colorado State Fair is aware of the Ractopamine issue and the Ohio State Fair's decision regarding that supplement. The Colorado State Fair WILL NOT be testing for the presence of Ractopamine in Market Hogs. The Fair would recommend that those exhibitors using feed containing Ractopamine have a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) in their record book and feed according to label directions.
The Livestock Department now has a Facebook page where we will be posting updates on Fair planning, rules, etc. Like and join the Colorado State Fair Livestock updates and information page on Facebook.
