Live-Stock Classifications at County Fairs

Description: "The chief value of livestock exhibitions or shows, whether under the auspices of community, county, state, or larger organizations, lies in their educational features. Livestock shows and fairs have been an important factor in the improvement of farm animals, since it is the show ring which designates the types and standards that breeders of animals strive to produce. These standards generally are based on market and economic demands.... While the chief value of exhibitions is educational, the livestock exhibits at county fairs are often so poorly classified that frequently the educational value is largely lost. It is the purpose of this bulletin to discuss in a general way some of the factors which, if properly handled, will help to increase the value of the county livestock exhibit." -- p. 3. Among the factors discussed are selection of judges, arrangement of exhibits, and rules and classifications.
