Dairy Cattle Excluded from Fairgrounds in 2024

As many already know MDARD had put restriction on animals affected by the HPAI A sickness that has been spreading in the state. The most recent update is as follows:

Under the initial HRRRO, Michigan had to go 30 consecutive days without a new HPAI A (H5N1) detection in poultry before showing poultry at fairs could be reinstated. On June 8, 2024, the state reached 30 consecutive days without a new HPAI A(H5N1) detection, which lifted the restrictions on poultry exhibitions outlined. Additionally, the prohibition on all lactating cows and animals from farms impacted by HPAI A(H5n1) remains in effect, as outlined in the original HRRRO.

It was decided by the board of directors that this year we will Not have dairy cattle at the fairgrounds. This decision echos that of several other fairs in the state. The board wants to keep everyone and animals as safe as they can while enjoying the fair. See you in August!
