2019 Livestock, Poultry, Rabbit Preregistration for Ransom County Fair -

The Ransom County Fairboard would like numbers of open class animals that will be brought to the 2019 fair.  These numbers are to make sure that they have enough stall/pen space available.  These numbers are preliminary numbers only.  All livestock, poultry and rabbits must be registered on entry day, Wednesday, August 21 to receive your show number and pay the stalling fee.  Preregister through the Ransom County Fair website.




Pullorum-Typhoid (P-T) testing has been Waived for 2019.

As a result of the fact that Pullorum-Typhiod (P-T) antigen has been unavailable for a significant period of time, the cost of laboratory testing, and the fact that P-T has not recently been identified in North Dakota Poultry, the State Board of Animal Health voted to allow North Dakota birds to be exhibited without being tested for P-T.  This waiver will remain in place through the end of the 2019 fair and show season, or until P-T antigen becomes available.  Should P-T antigen become available, this waiver will end and all birds must be tested prior to exhibition.

ALL birds exhibited MUST have a leg or wing band in order to show at the 2019 Ransom County Fair.

The bands will only be used as a source of identification if they get loose or become ill and the bird needs to be tracked.
