5C-4 Admission of Animals for Exhibition State Rule

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services anticipates that 5C-4 Admission of Animals for Exhibition State Rule will be going into effect before the 2023 Show for all Exhibitions. ALL livestock regardless of age will need to have Official Identification (usually put in by Breeder) and must be accompanied with an OCVI (Official Certificate of Veterinary Inspection-HEALTH PAPER).

YOUTH PULLET PROJECT

UPDATE: The South Florida Fair’s 2023 Youth Pullet Project registrations have all been spoken for! But don’t let that you stop you from participating in the Fair’s Small Animal project areas. Check our website often for updates to our 2023 Official Premium Book for other participation opportunities.

ETHICS CLASS/ MARKET ANIMIAL MARKETING CLINIC/ ANImal HEALTHCARE

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5

The 2023 South Florida Fair is January 13-29

The Youth Livestock Show Ethics, Animal Care and Marketing Clinics are designed to certify students to meet the mandatory certification requirements. Certifications are valid for three (3) Fair seasons, not three calendar years.

It is important that the exhibitors understand:

  • The purpose of youth livestock projects
  • The importance of ethics in youth livestock projects
  • Proper animal handling and management practices
  • The difference between animal welfare and animal rights
  • How to become an ambassador for animal agriculture
  • Promote and sell animals to prospective buyers in the Auction
ALL EXHIBITORS WHO ARE ENTERED IN THE 2023 SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR YOUTH SHOWS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THE ETHICS TRAINING WORKSHOP OR HAVE A CURRENT ETHICS NUMBER BEFORE January 1 TO SHOW AN ANIMAL AT THE 2023 SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR.

NOTE: While most Florida fairs have adopted this ethics program, the rules governing the exhibitors differ from fair to fair. It is the exhibitors' responsibility to make sure they are in compliance with EACH particular fair where they are showing an animal.
