The Hardin County Fair Board is issuing clarification and guidance regarding terminal animals entering the food chain. All shows in 2020 will remain terminal like normal. Animals will be loaded to enter the food chain at the conclusion of their show day. Animals with timely harvest appointments scheduled must present proof at their respective species’ exhibitor meeting.
Animals going to custom harvest will remain on the fairgrounds through the close of the fair. Exhibitors will be responsible for caring for their animals through the close of the fair on Sunday at 7 p.m. Exhibitors will be given access to enter the fairgrounds, actively care for their animal, then promptly exit the grounds.
