2019 MECHANICS OF SALE FOR EXHIBITORS SELLING FROM STALLS
There are two ways to sell meat market animals during the Head of the Lakes Fair in 2019.  One is
through the Douglas County Beef Improvement Association’s auction, which is for their members.  The
other method is to sell animals from the stalls while at the fair.
Rules for selling meat animals from stalls:
 All market animals must be sold according to DATCP rules and state policies.
 Buyers may be solicited before or during the fair and sellers may advertise above the animals
Thursday(after the Douglas County Beef Improvement Association’s auction) until the end of the fair. Sales must be finalized before the fair is over.
 All animals must be housed in Douglas County.
 Livestock projects will be weighed on the first day they are brought into the fairgrounds. The
Livestock judge will grade the animals on judging day.
 Exhibitors are responsible for animals until the end of the fair.
 Due to state health recommendations for swine this year, the fair management group has
decided that the fair will hold a terminal show for swine this year. That means that every pig and
hog that comes to the fairgrounds must go directly to slaughter at the end of the fair.
 Sellers must make arrangements with the buyers to transport animals that are going to be
slaughtered.
 Douglas County 4-H and its members will not be liable for any injury or loss to any person,
business, or association involved in the Beef Projects, Swine Projects and/or Sheep Projects at
the sale or at the fair or involving transportation of the animals or in any activity connected with
the project.
 Purchases are being made from individuals, not a chartered 4-H group; therefore, they are not
tax deductible.
