Testing will take place on animal entry day of the fair, Tuesday, August 20, from 3-6 p.m. Bring your home raised birds for testing then enter them in the fair!

The current USDA policy to prevent the spread of Salmonella Pullorum-Typhoid (P-T) states all chickens, exotic fowl, and game birds going to exhibit must test negative for P-T. This rule excludes waterfowl, doves, and pigeons. If you raise poultry and participate in the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) or if you birds were bought from a NPIP participant a hatchery or a feed store you do not need to have their birds P-T tested prior to exhibit.

Exhibitors that do not meet the criteria above must test negative for P-T within 90 days of going to exhibit. See you and your P-T free poultry at the fun fair August 21-24.
