The traditional Fulton County Fair was canceled, but a plan was submitted and approved by the Arkansas Department of Agriculture and Department of Health for a Junior Livestock Show for youth who reside in Fulton County or attend school in the county.
The shows will be July 23 and July 25, and 34 youths will be showing cattle, hogs, sheep, and goats. All health department and CDC guidelines will be followed for the livestock shows.
Many of the animals will be sold at the Junior Livestock Premium Sale at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 25 in the Everett Show Barn on the fairgrounds in Salem. Exhibitors will have 16 – 18 hogs, and some cattle and goats will be sold.
Businesses and individuals are encouraged to come out and support the Fulton County Junior Livestock Program. Donations are also being accepted for added money which will be divided between all of the youth who show in this special livestock show.
Face masks will be required but can be removed if the 6 feet social distancing is observed. Attendees should bring lawn chairs since the bleachers had to be removed from the show arena to meet the social distancing guidelines.
For more information on the Junior Premium Auction, contact the Fulton County Fair Office at (870) 895-5565 or a member of the Junior Livestock Committee. Perryman and Perryman Auction Co. will be conducting the sale.
