Just a few reminders!!!
• All 4-H families are required to contribute to the fair concession stand, not just those partici-
    pating in fair. Money earned at this time is used to cover all County Council functions
    throughout the year including meeting activities, camps, scholarships, and end-of-year
• If you are not able to work your club’s designated shift (see schedule below) please call or e-
    mail Jacki for alternate options. Please keep in mind, if everyone were to seek an alternate
    option we would not have enough man power to run the concession! Please request an alter-
    nate option as a last resource.
• Each club’s designated shift manager must attend the MANDATORY concession stand train-
    ing August 1, 10-11am.

Tips for Exhibiting Livestock
As we get closer to County Fair there are a few things that every livestock exhibitor should keep
in mind.
• Read your Fair Book! Bring it with you to the fair and become aware of all rules and any
   changes that have taken place.
• Get your entries in on time!
• Know the show schedule! There have been some changes made to the show schedule.
   Please see your fair book for more information.
• Be prepared! Pack all tack and supplies that you will need for the duration of the fair. This in-
   cludes feed, grooming equipment, and cleaning supplies. It is strongly encouraged that you
   bring a wheel barrow to the fair if you have one so you can keep your pens clean.
• Be familiar with the regulations set by the NM Livestock Board. You may call the CES office or
   the livestock board if you have any questions about this.

Remember, not knowing is not an excuse! If you have any questions about County Fair or your
livestock projects please feel free to call Christina!

NM Livestock Board Requirements
Below are a few major requirements set for ALL livestock in the state of NM. For more details please call the CES
office or the NM Livestock Board at 505-841-6161.
• Steers and sexually intact, 4 months and older, require a negative TB test prior to showing.
• Steers: one test will be sufficient for the 2009 show season.
• Proof of ownership must accompany the animal (NMLB “form 1” inspection certificate) and must be presented at
     all livestock shows attended.
•     All health and ID requirements must be met.
• All swine from out-of-state must receive an import inspection (an NMLB “form 1” inspection certificate), based
     on the original official certificate of veterinary inspection and import permit. If not an original certificate, the
     copy must be verified and stamped by an NMLB inspector.
• Proof of ownership must accompany the animal (NMLB “form 1” inspection certificate) must accompany the ani-
     mal when traveling out of district and is strongly recommended even in district. This will help assure that all
     requirements are met well before fair time.
• At least one of the following requirements must be met:
          Be tattooed with approved 4-H, FFA, or owner’s tattoo
          Have current owner’s recorded ear tag
          Have current owner’s recorded earmark
• Sexually intact Sheep and goats must have a current scrapie tag or registration tattoo.
• Due to the nature of the disease, sheep do not require a TB test.
• Sexually intact goats must have a negative TB test within 60 days of any exhibition, including the New Mexico-
     State Fair, with the following exceptions; within 90 days of the Southern New Mexico State Fair; within 90 days of
     the Eastern New Mexico State Fair.
• Proof of ownership must accompany the animal; either an NMLB “form 1” certificate of inspection, or a 1-H per-
     manent inspection card.
•     A current negative Coggins test, performed within the preceding twelve months, must accompany the animal.

Turquoise Trail Wranglers
Stay In The Saddle Clinic
For our May meeting we were fortunate to have working Oklahoma rancher, trainer and clini-
cian Janel Brookshire and her husband Dale conduct
one of their renowned "Stay in the Saddle" Horse-
manship clinics. Dale and Janel worked with Wran-
gler club leaders Rick Iannucci and Nancy De Santis
last year during spring branding and over the next
year planned what turned out to be a fantastic day on
horseback for our club. Topics covered everything
from saddling, mounting to walking, trotting and lop-
ing your horse and all with proper cues, alignment
and "seat". Our wranglers were horseback for many
hours and by the end of the session everyones hard
work was evident in the way they were riding.

Just wanted to let you all know that our Wranglers and the Horses for Heroes Draft horse drawn
wagon won the Mayors First place award at Saturdays Rodeo de Santa Fe parade. Our club
dressed their western best and rode as outriders with
the wagon which carried Veterans from the therapeu-
tic riding program as well as some of our younger
club members.
Despite the steady drizzle all morning spirits were
high and a good time was had by all. The trophy and
the cash award will be dedicated to the Horses for He-
roes program as part of our community service out-

The Santa Fe County Fair Board will take every precaution for the safety of visitors and exhibits, but assumes no liability for the personal injury or
                          loss or damage to any property of the exhibitor or patron due to theft, fire or other causes.

 Each exhibitor shall indemnify the Santa Fe County Fair against all claims or demands or any kind or nature that may grow out of any
injury occasioned by the exhibit owned. The Santa Fe County Fair will not be responsible or liable for any injury sustained in any way to
                                            exhibitors, entertainers, vendors or spectators.
                              Santa Fe County Fair Code of Ethics
               Exhibitors of the Santa Fe County Fair will agree to the following guidelines:

   •   I will read and seek to understand the rules and guidelines directing county fair participation as set forth
       by the Santa Fe County Fair Book. I ask that parents, fair officials, fair board members, etc. not break
       the rules or make exceptions on my behalf.

   •   I will conduct myself in a positive manner at all times while participating in the Santa Fe County Fair.

   •   I will do my own work, appropriate for my age and physical and mental development. I will be honest
       and not take unfair advantage of others. All exhibits will be a true representation of my work.

   •   I will keep my fair exhibit area and myself neat, clean, and well groomed. I will dress neatly and
       appropriately for the occasion.

   •   I will be willing to take and follow instructions as directed by those responsible for me and my exhibit.

   •   I will exhibit good sportsmanship, being modest in winning and generous in defeat. I want my exhibit to
       be an example of how to accept the good and the bad, and how to live and learn from the outcome.

   •   I will refrain from loud, boisterous talk and swearing. I will refrain from drinking, smoking, using
       illegal drugs and sexual misconduct.

   •   I will show respect for the rights of others and be courteous of others opinions at all times.

   •   If I am a parent or guardian, I will be responsible for the actions of my children involved in the county
       fair. If I am not on the fairgrounds, it is my responsibility to identify adult supervision for my children.

The Santa Fe County Fair board and fair officials expect courteous and orderly conduct by exhibitors at all
times. Harassment, profanity, or un-sportsmanlike conduct toward officials, judges, superintendents, or other
exhibitors will not be tolerated. A violation of these rules may result in the violator and his/her exhibit being
removed from the grounds, with a possible forfeit of awards.

I have carefully read and understand the Santa Fe County Code of Ethics and agree to accept them.
