“Nothing Compares to State Fair Thrills” – except the National Red Angus Junior and Open Shows slated for the Iowa State Fair this August.
The entry deadline is July 1 and Red Angus exhibitors may enter online at IowaStateFair.org. The Iowa State Fair will accept late entries until July 8 but exhibitors must pay a late fee.
July 1 is also the deadline for animal ownership and exhibitors must be a valid member in good standing of the Red Angus Association of America or Junior Red Angus Association of America.
The junior show will take place on Friday, Aug. 18, and the open show on Saturday, Aug. 19.
“We are excited to include the Iowa State Fair in our National Show rotation,” said Chessie Mitchell, RAAA show coordinator. “By rotating the National Show location and time of year, we are able to offer the opportunity to RAAA members who might not be able to attend the same venue each year.”
Mitchell also reminded exhibitors to familiarize themselves with RAAA ownership and show rules found in Section J of the RAAA Breeder’s Guide.
