      e) Exhibitors having space assigned them will not be permitted to change to another location without

                                              LOCAL RULES


                                SHOW RING CODE OF ETHICS
    Exhibitors of animals shall at all times deport themselves with honesty and good sportsmanship. Their
conduct in this competitive environment shall always reflect the highest standards of honor and dignity
to promote the advancement of agricultural education. This code applies to junior as well as open class
exhibitors who compete in structured classes of competition. This code applies to all livestock and animals
offered in any event.
    Owners-exhibitors found to violate this code of ethics or in violation of rules or in practices unethical
or inimical with the show program will forfeit premiums and awards and shall be prohibited from future
exhibition in accordance with the rules adopted by this Fair.




                                                     7
                                                LOCAL RULES


                                     RULES OF GOVERNANCE
In addition to these rules, all exhibitors are responsible for compliance with any federal, state, county, and
local fair rules. Fair management agrees to enforce the printed show rules (i.e.; State Rules, Local Rules,
etc.) The following is a list of rules all exhibitors must follow to enter.
   1. All exhibitors must have viable proof of ownership available to fair show officials at their request.
      Documents should include current ownership information, transfer of ownership (if any), length of
      ownership, and age of animal(s). Misrepresentation of ownership, age, breed, or any facts relating
      thereto is prohibited. Exhibitors and their agents and advisors agree to comply with the printed show
      rules upon entry. Llamas and horses may be leased, with appropriate documents filed in the 4-H or
      FFA offices.
   2. No exhibitor may show an animal which has been previously sold at an auction or sale as a market
      animal through another fair or livestock show, whether or not there is an actual change of ownership
      (progress level show excluded.) Any method used to misrepresent the animal for a class in which it
      is shown is deceptive and considered illegal. Showing an animal for another individual by claiming
      ownership is prohibited. False ownership is illegal.
   3. Junior exhibitors are expected to care for, groom and exhibit their own animals while at the Fair.
      However, because of the educational nature of the livestock show it is appropriate, on occasion, for
      parents, leaders, and/or other approved persons to supervise the preparation of livestock for show.
   4. The act of entering an animal in the Fair provides for absolute responsibility for an animal’s condition
      by the owner-exhibitor, whether or not he/she was actually instrumental in, or had actual knowledge
      of an act perpetrated to misrepresent or mistreat an animal in contravention of this code of ethics.
   5. a) The use of tranquilizers, sedatives, or depressants or any other drug that alters the physical or
            physiological state of the animal is illegal. The drugs must be approved by the Food and Drug
            Administration (FDA) for use in meat producing animals in market classes only. All exhibitors
            shall advise show management of any drugs and/or medications administered to an animal. The
            name of the drug, its purpose, the person administering the drug and time and date of admin-
            istration shall be presented to show management prior to the showing of the animal. Failure to
            report this information will result in severe penalty and/or disqualification. Any use of drugs or
            substances not approved by the FDA is strictly prohibited.
        b) Animals shall be presented free of drugs. The act of entering an animal in the Fair gives consent
            by owner-exhibitor for Fair management to obtain specimens of urine, saliva, blood, or other
            requested substances from the animal to be used in testing.
         c) During the Fair, in the case of animals requiring treatment, all medications shall be administered
            with written approval by a licensed veterinarian of this state and the Fair officials shall be notified.
        d) If the laboratory report on the chemical analysis of saliva, urine, blood, or other sample taken
            from livestock indicates the presence of forbidden drugs or medication, this shall be prima facie
            evidence such substance has been administered to the animal either internally or externally. It
            is presumed that the sample of urine, saliva, blood, or other substance tested by the approved
            laboratory to which it is sent is the one taken for the animal in question, its integrity is preserved
            and all procedures of said collection and preservation, transfer to the laboratory pertains to the
            animal in question and correctly reflects the condition of the animal at the time the sample was
            taken from the animal in question. The “owner-exhibitor” has the burden to prove otherwise at
            any hearing in regard to the matter conducted by the Fair.
   6. Any surgical procedure or injection of any foreign substance or drug or external application of a
      substance (irritant, counterirritant, or similar substance) which could affect the animal’s performance
      or alter its natural contour, conformation, or appearance, except external applications of substances
      to the hoofs or horns of animals which affect appearance only and except for surgical procedures by a
      duly licensed veterinarian for the purpose of protecting the health of the animal, is prohibited.
   7. The use of inhumane showing and/or handling practices or devices such as striking animals to cause
      swelling, using electrical contrivance, or other similar practices are not acceptable and are prohibited.
      Other practices unless under the written authority of a licensed veterinarian, that are not acceptable or
      prohibited include, but not limited to, liquid diets for lambs, excessive shrinking, excessive exercising,
      tying animal with their feet off the ground, icing animals down and electric stimulation.
   8. The balancing of the udder by abnormal means that includes the use of a mechanical contrivance or
      the injection of fluid or drugs, setting the teats and/or occluding with a mechanical contrivance or

                                                        8
                                              LOCAL RULES


    the use of chemical preparation is illegal. Treating or massaging the udder or its attachments with an
    irritant or counterirritant is prohibited.
 9. Direct criticism or interference with the judge; fair show management; other exhibitors; breed represen-
    tatives; or show officials before, during, or after the competitive event is prohibited. In the furtherance
    of their official duty, all judges, Fair and Livestock Show management, or other officials shall be treated
    with courtesy, cooperation, and respect, and no person shall direct abusive or threatening conduct to-
    ward them.
10. No owner-exhibitor shall conspire with another person or persons to intentionally violate this code
    of ethics or knowingly contribute or cooperate with another person or persons either by affirmative
    action or inaction to violate this code of ethics. Violation of this rule shall subject such individuals to
    disciplinary action.
11. Show management reserves the right to require health inspections and/or diagnostic tests to be made
    before, during or after the animals are on the Fair premises for exhibitor and animal safety, or to
    inaugurate disease control procedures which may become necessary in emergencies as determined by
    animal health officials.

                                 Wool & Mohair Division Rules
 1. Only fleeces in the grease are eligible for competition. Please designate Commercial or Handspinner
    fleece on entry form.
 2. Fleeces shall not be more than 12-months growth. The definition of “12-months” shall be the definition
    most commonly accepted by the wool trade. Thus, if a fleece is actually slightly more than 12-months
    growth, due to unavoidable delay in obtaining shearers, or by weather, it shall be termed “12-months”
    Wool or Mohair.
 3. Because this Wool Show terminates in wool sale of quality fleeces, all fleeces shall have bellies and tags
    removed. Fleeces not in compliance shall be disqualified.
 4. Wether fleeces may be included in the Handspinner White Division only.
 5. White Ewe fleeces only in Division 21, Market Class.
 6. Each exhibitor will be limited to two fleece entries per class. A fleece may not be shown in more than
    two divisions.
 7. All fleeces entered must have been sheared from sheep or goat owned by the exhibitors. Fleeces shall
    have been shorn after Sunday, September 14, 2008.
 8. The Judge has power to classify fleeces and move fleeces to the correct class before making award.
 9. Fleeces will be shown in clear plastic bags, still rolled with flesh side out in a manner to allow their
    being handled without falling apart.
10. Any fleece entered for competition in the California National Wool Show/Mendocino County Fair Wool
    Show shall be discriminated against if:
      a) Showing any paint or tar brands (soluble branding fluids permitted).
      b) Showing a weak staple or break in the fiber.
      c) Containing any excess burrs or other vegetable matter, and animal feces.
11. Judging of Fleeces:
      a) Quality of fineness.
      b) Evenness of quality or fineness among the various parts of the fleece
      c) Length and strength of staple
      d) Estimated clean weight
      e) Condition
      f) Character, including crimp and color.
12. Fleeces may be shipped express prepaid, U.S. Mail or UPS, to arrive by Wednesday, September 16,
    2009. Paper cartons are excellent for shipping. United Parcel Service is the fastest and lease expensive
    way to ship fleeces. Mail to address:

                                       JUNIOR DEPARTMENT

The Junior Department is for young people who want to enter exhibits at fairs. There are a number
of organizations that want competition among members of the organization. The Fair can do this by
establishing divisions and classes for groups such as FFA and 4-H clubs and others. The fair will provide
the opportunity for young people to exhibit who are not a member of an organization. Junior exhibitors
may not enter the same species of animal or bird in FFA, 4-H, Grange, and Independent classes. All junior
exhibitors must have “on grounds” supervision by a responsible adult.
    County, district and state fairs cannot legally carry liability insurance covering junior exhibitors and/or
their exhibits. Liability insurance is the responsibility of the junior exhibitor. Therefore, it is required that
junior exhibitors take out a liability policy covering themselves and their exhibits. Existing ranch policies
my provide coverage, check your individual policy.

4-H CLUB MEMBERS - 4-H primary members must be at least 5 years old by January 1 of the 4-H
program year (July-June) or in Kindergarten to exhibit small animals approved by 4-H state policy. Junior,
Intermediate & Senior members must be 9-18 years old (or in the fourth grade for Juniors) on January 1 of
the 4-H program year. Senior members may exhibit until the end of the calendar year in which the member
reaches age 19. 4-H livestock members must be enrolled in the project for at least 60 days immediately
preceding the opening day of the fair and abide by the project eligibility rules.
    All 4-H Club exhibitors must wear the official uniform of their organization while showing their animals
and at the awards ceremony. For boys, 4-H Cap (appropriate color); long or short sleeved white shirt; white
or dark green trousers; belts should be worn if trousers have belt loops. Boots, if worn, must be inside
of trouser legs. For girls, 4-H Cap (appropriate color); white skirt and blouse, or dress with 4-H collar;
appropriate footwear. Girls may wear boy’s uniform if they prefer. Boots, if worn, must be inside of trouser
legs.

FFA MEMBERS - FFA members may participate when they are enrolled in high school vocational
agricultural classes and may exhibit as members to the end of the calendar year following graduation from
high school.
    The official FFA show uniform shall be worn by all FFA exhibitors and by helpers in individual and
chapter groups while showing and at the awards ceremony. The uniform shall consist of white trousers,
white dress shirt or blouse (short or long-sleeved) with the FFA emblem attached to the left pocket, and
the official FFA blue necktie for boys or FFA blue scarf for girls. The official jacket is optional; if worn, the
shirt emblem is not required. Hats or headgear or any kind shall not be worn with the official show uniform
while showing.

INDEPENDENT JUNIOR EXHIBITORS - Independent junior exhibitors not affiliated with any
organization can enter appropriate FFA or 4-H classes if no open junior independent class is available and
if they are at least 9 years of age and must not be older than 19 years of age. Independent junior exhibitors
must not have been in a junior organization within 60 days (120 days for cattle & horse) to be eligible to
participate, see state rule VII 18. An independent junior may, after entering kindergarten, exhibit in the
small animals (poultry and rabbits) up to and including third grade. Independent junior exhibitors cannot
exhibit in ANY large livestock (beef, dairy cattle, goat, horse, sheep, swine, etc.) until the completion of
the third grade.
    Attire shall be short-sleeved button down white blouse/shirt and dark/khaki pants with appropriate
boots. See attire for junior horse show.
    On providing a separate department for the members of junior groups, the Department of Food and
Agriculture is endeavoring to provide a program which is consistent with the general agricultural fair program
and which is coordinated with the program of the Future Farmers of America, the 4-H youth programs, and
other recognized junior farm groups. The rules and regulations prescribed for the Junior Department have
been formulated with the cooperation and approval of State leaders of junior groups. Rules applying to the
Senior Department also apply to the Junior Department.

                          THE ROY HARRIS INSPIRATIONAL AWARD
    Roy Harris worked with the Mendocino County Fair for many years. Roy always gave special attention
to kids showing at the fair; especially the ones who had things go wrong. It is in Roy’s memory that the
Board of Directors of the Mendocino County Fair has chosen to establish this award.
    All members of the Mendocino County 4-H or FFA are eligible. Nominees would have exhibited a helpful
and positive attitude in the face of difficulties. The judges will be looking for a boy or girl who has persisted
when things didn’t go quite as planned, though not necessarily “winning”. Each club or chapter will be
allowed one applicant. Club leader or advisor should send their recommendation describing their nominee’s
experience to:
      Mendocino County Fair

                                         Sponsored by McAsey Farms
A silver buckle will be awarded to a junior exhibitor for their Outstanding Breeding project. Independent ,
FFA, and 4-H members who have shown growth in their livestock breeding project and meet the following
guidelines are eligible. Applicants must be in their second year of high school or older. Exhibitors may apply
every year until they are no longer able to compete at a junior level. (Winning applicants may not re-apply.)
The breeding project must be in operation for a minimum of two years. Applicants will be asked to supply
information showing the scope of their projects including how the project was started along with expense
and income statements. Members may apply themselves or have someone nominate them for the award.
Applications will be available in the fair office or online at www.rainbowag.com. All forms must be turned
in to the livestock office by the evening of Saturday, September 19. The applications will be reviewed that
evening and the presentation of the buckle will take place during the Junior Awards Ceremony on Sunday.
    This award is dedicated to Chuck Ream, a prestigious livestock breeder in Mendocino County. Chuck is
known for his continuous support of youth projects at the local, state, and national levels. He has served as a
4-H leader, FFA advisor, and as a Youth Advisor for the California Suffolk and Hampshire Sheep Association
as well as the National Junior Suffolk Sheep Association. Through his mentoring, many young individuals
have succeeded in their chosen livestock fields as breeders, Ag instructors, livestock judges, and 4-H leaders
to name a few. It is because of his ideals of the importance of youth in agriculture that we choose to honor
Mr. Ream.

                                      CLEAN STALL AWARD

with other exhibits. In all Junior Departments using the Danish System THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES
SHALL BE USED BY JUDGES:
     Group 1 - Superior              92% - 100% Blue
     Group 2 - Good                   84% - 91% Red
     Group 3 - Average                70% - 83% White
     Group 4 - Poor, undesirable 69% or Less No Ribbon
