Updating an Announcement from January – No Poultry Show Will be Held This Year.

Earlier this month, the voting members of Agfest had decided to move forward with holding a terminal-only poultry show. However, since then, there have been 20 new cases discovered and it has been recommended by the USDA that we not hold a show. We will be abiding by the recommendation and there will NOT be a poultry show again this year. While we completely understand that this is disappointing for our youth involved in poultry projects, it is critical that we all do our part in eradication efforts for this devastating disease. Thank-you for your understanding and support. Here is a link to the latest updates from the state veterinarian on this important issue.
