Walla Walla County Cattlemen’s Youth Market Sale Weigh-in March 28th, 2020
Due to the current State and Federal laws regulating COVID-19 Pandemic. The Market Steer weigh-in for the Walla Walla County Cattlemen’s Youth Market Sale, held in partnership with the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days, will be cancelled. At this time 4-H and FFA have been given directives to cease all activities.Walla Walla Cattlemen’s Association will observe these directives to ensure compliance with all emergency procedures.
We are in hope that COVID-19 crisis will come to an end soon and our youth activities will resume. We will adapt to this situation by:
- Allowing market steer exhibitors to bring their steers to the fair. At which time they will be tagged during the fair weigh-in. Currently we cannot plan to reschedule the steer weigh-in.If conditions allow, we will try to provide a weigh-in prior to the fair. However, there will be no opportunity for a Rate of Gain contest.
- The steers must meet all the current weight and age restriction that are outlined in the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days Exhibitor’s Handbook. If the steer is found to NOT be eligible under the Livestock Sale Eligibility and Qualifications, they will not be able to sell at the 2020 Youth Market Sale.
- Exhibitors must also be eligible according to the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days Exhibitor’s Handbook. If the exhibitor is found to NOT be eligible under the rules for 4-H and FFA they will not be able to sell their market steer at the 2020 Youth Market Sale.
Please stay in contact with WSU Extension Office, Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days, 4-H Leaders and FFA Advisors for further information regarding any updates or changes.We hope you all stay healthy and safe during this epidemic.
