SPECIAL ENTRY RULES

ENTRY DEADLINE: No livestock entries will be accepted after July 12. Remember, entries must be postmarked, emailed or hand-delivered by July 5.
BUILDING EXHIBITS: Everyone shall pick up their entry tags in Beltzner Hall. You will be directed where to take your entries.

  1. All exhibitors agree to be bound by the rules and regulations of The Kutztown Fair, Inc.
  2. The fair management reserves the right to amend or add to these rules and regulations as its judgment may determine.
  3. Reasonable care will be taken to protect all exhibits on display from all injury and damage, but the fair is not, in any way, to be held responsible for accidents, loss or damage by water, fire, theft or otherwise, whatever may be the cause or extent of the damage or loss.
  4. Entries will be made according to the classifications listed in this Premium Book. Entry tags must be properly marked to show the name of the exhibit. In the case of livestock, Breed name must be shown on cards so that it can be readily identified by the viewer.
  5. Premiums, as listed, may be given meritorious exhibits. In cases where there is no competition, judges may give an award such as they deem the exhibit is worthy to receive. The same rule applies where there are fewer entries in any class than the number of premiums offered. The judges may, at their discretion, award a ribbon or rosette. The fair reserves the right to determine how many entries they will accept from an exhibitor in the same class or, in the case of livestock, the same breed. Each exhibitor, however, is limited to a maximum of 2 premiums per class for livestock and dairy exhibitors.
  6. It shall be the responsibility of the exhibitor to properly name the article or breed of livestock they are entering. Any exhibit improperly entered will be disqualified from receiving a prize, but the judges will mark the correct name on the entry tag for the benefit of the owner so the same mistake in entering need not be made the second time.
  7. All entries must be grown, produced, or made since the last fair by the person whose name appears on the tag as exhibitor.
  8. Superintendents reserve the right to bar from competition animals, vegetables, flowers, poultry, products and manufactured articles of decidedly inferior quality and those not possessing sufficient merit to warrant recognition. The fair reserves the right to remove any exhibit not worthy of viewing by the public.
  9. Food products cannot be polluted with any substance or chemical that causes them to become poisonous and unfit to be used as food. Any such incidents must be reported to the Pennsylvania Agricultural Fair Program for further review.
  10. No exhibit may be removed at any time before the close of the fair except by consent of the management.
  11. The ribbons or rosettes must be placed on the exhibit, stall or pen of the individual winners for the duration of the fair. Where award ribbons are stolen or destroyed, the exhibitor may receive a duplicate at the close of the fair or show which shall be supplied by the fair free of charge.
  12. Judging of livestock and dairy cattle is viewed as an educational process and the public is encouraged to view the judging event. Any exhibitor interfering with the judges while making awards shall forfeit any premium to which he would otherwise have been entitled.
  13. All applications for entries must be made on printed forms and in accordance with the instructions on the same.
  14. No gambling, immoral exhibition, or intoxicated persons will be allowed on the fair grounds.
  15. SMOKING, DRINKING, AND/OR POSSESSION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IN OR NEAR THE LIVESTOCK AND DAIRY AREAS IS FORBIDDEN BY THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE KUTZTOWN FAIR ASSOCIATION, INC. AND WILL BE RIGIDLY ENFORCED. Exhibitors violating this rule will be expelled along with their exhibits from the fair and will forfeit their premiums. They may also be barred from exhibiting at future Kutztown Fairs.
  16. Any improper conduct on the part of an exhibitor shall be punishable by expulsion from the Fairgrounds and the immediate removal of exhibits including the forfeiture of premiums.
  17. All articles for exhibition must be entered in the name of the real owner and be in their places with all rubbish and trash cleared away by designated arrival time on the opening day of the fair, unless otherwise specified, and remain on the grounds until released by the respective departments. Exhibit removal times are listed in the Fair Judging Schedule and/or the individual departments.
  18. Entries are limited to Berks and Lehigh counties, as space permits.

JUDGES & JUDGING

JUDGES & JUDGING

1. Judges are earnestly requested to familiarize themselves with all the rules and regulations of The Kutztown Fair Association, Inc. and to mark especially those rules bearing on the classes to be adjudicated by them. If any rule lacks clarity, attention should be called to it before judging.

2. The judges must not award a prize to any unworthy exhibit. It is the intention of The Kutztown Fair Association, Inc. that a premium or distinction of any kind be given only to an animal or article worthy thereof. In the event of a premium being withheld from any exhibit for that reason, the judge will write “not worthy” in the award column opposite such entry. In case there is no competition in a class, they will award a premium according to the merit of the animal or article as in their judgment the article or animal deserves.

3. If any exhibitor in any way, whether in person or by agent, interferes with the judge during adjudication, or shows any disrespect to a judge, he may exclude him from competition and from the ring and may withhold from such exhibitor any premiums that may have been awarded.

4. The decision of the judges shall be final in all cases except where mistakes, fraud, misrepresentation, or collusion, not discovered at the time of the award, is proved. In such cases, the Superintendent, Manager, or Secretary of the fair or show, or such referee as he may appoint, may make the decision with his approval. The case may be appealed to the Fair Board from whose decision there can be no appeal. All protests regarding judging must be in writing and must plainly state the cause of the complaint or appeal. Such protests must be filed at the Fair Office within 24 hours of the occurrence.

PREMIUMS

PREMIUMS

1. All premiums must be demanded on or before the last day of October.

INTERNATIONAL ASSOC. OF FAIRS & EXPOSITIONS
NATIONAL CODE OF SHOW RING ETHICS

Exhibitors of animals at livestock shows 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 offered in any event at a livestock show. In addition to the “IAFE National Code of Show Ring Ethics,” fairs and livestock shows may have rules and regulations which they impose on the local, county, state, provincial and national levels.

All youth leaders working with junior exhibitors are under an affirmative responsibility to do more than avoid improper conduct or questionable acts. Their moral values must be so certain and positive that those younger and more pliable will be influenced by their fine example. Owners, exhibitors, fitters, trainers and absolutely responsible persons who violate the code of ethics will forfeit premiums, awards and auction proceeds and shall be prohibited from future exhibition in accordance with the rules adopted by the respective fairs and livestock shows. Exhibitors who violate this code of ethics demean the integrity of all livestock exhibitors and should be prohibited from competition at all livestock shows in the United States and Canada.

The following is a list of guidelines for all exhibitors and all livestock in competitive events:

1. All exhibitors must present, upon request of fair and livestock show officials, proof of ownership, length of ownership and age of all animals entered. Misrepresentation of ownership, age, or any facts relating thereto is prohibited.

2. Owners, exhibitors, fitters, trainers, or absolutely responsible persons shall provide animal health certificates from licensed veterinarians upon request by fair or livestock show officials.

3. Junior exhibitors are expected to care for and groom their animals while at fairs or livestock shows.

4. Animals shall be presented to show events where they will enter the food chain free of drugs. The act of entering an animal in a livestock show is the giving of consent by the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer and/or absolutely responsible person for show management to obtain any specimens of urine, saliva, blood, or other substances from the animal to be used in testing. Animals not entered in an event which culminates with the animal entering the food chain shall not be administered drugs other than in accordance with applicable federal, state and provincial statutes, regulations and rules. Livestock shall not be exhibited if the drugs administered in accordance with federal, state and provincial statutes, regulations and rules affect the animal’s performance or appearance at the event.

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 from the animal in question, its integrity is preserved and all procedures of said collection and preservation, transfer to the laboratory and analysis of the sample are correct and accurate and the report received from the laboratory pertains to the sample taken from the animal in question and correctly reflects the condition of the animal at the time the sample was taken, with the burden on the owner, exhibitor, fitter, trainer, or absolutely responsible person to prove otherwise at any hearing in regard to the matter conducted by the fair or livestock show.

At any time after an animal arrives on the fair or livestock show premises, all treatments involving the use of drugs and/or medications shall be administered by a licensed veterinarian.

RED TAPE LETTER:

Dear Livestock and Dairy Exhibitors,

In recent years, there has been concern for animal husbandry practices at the fair. We must take into consideration that what we show the public directly influences their view of agriculture. To continue to promote the exhibits to the best of our abilities, the Kutztown Fair Ag Committee has decided to enact a fee for animal(s) not cared for/cleaned up in a timely manner.

Approximately one hour prior to fair opening each day, an Ag representative will walk each barn isle and will mark with a red tape any animal(s) that have not been cared for that day. This excludes animals that may have recently made a mess of themselves (pooped laying down etc.) The exhibitor will then have one hour to make their animal(s) presentable or they will be fined $25 per animal.

If an exhibitor is not present while they receive a red tape, it is their responsibility to have someone notify them. The fair will not notify individuals receiving a red tape. Market animals must be washed and presentable Saturday morning or they will be excused from being sold at the sale. The regular good housekeeping walk through will still be done during the open fair hours Monday through Friday.

Thank you,

Kutztown Fair Ag Committee
