Biosecurity for Livestock Shows and Fairs

This informational training program is designed to assist extension personnel working with fair superintendents and fair management to plan and implement appropriate biosecurity measures at fairs and livestock shows. It is important for all personnel to recognize disease symptoms of livestock that come to the fair.  Superintendents and fair management should review this program prior to the livestock coming to the fair, and have a plan in place to prevent biosecurity risks from livestock entering the fair or show. Appropriate training of all personnel involved with the fair using this program will ensure a level of biosecurity awareness that will help prevent disease and injury of people and animals.
