Market steers to be entered in the 2014 Washington Town and Country Fair will be tagged Saturday, Feb. 15, from 7 to 10 a.m.
A snow date of Feb. 22 has been set if weather does not permit tagging to take place on Feb 15.
The tagging will be held at the livestock pavilion at the city park fairgrounds.
Exhibitors will be allowed to tag two steers, but may only enter one. The weight of the animal at Fair time must be 1,000 to 1,450 pounds.
All junior exhibitors must be a member in good standing of a 4-H club or FFA chapter, and they must be enrolled in the project they are exhibiting.
Market class junior exhibitors must be from Franklin or an adjoining county.
Complete rules for the junior livestock exhibitors will be available at the tag-in or at the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce office or through the Fair catalog.
The exhibitor must be present at the tagging. All exhibitors, regardless of age, must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Relatives or friends will not be allowed to tag the animal for an exhibitor.
