Columbiana County steer weigh-in is Nov. 17


LISBON, Ohio – There will be a mandatory weigh-in for all steers to be shown at the 2002 Columbiana County junior fair.

The steers will be tagged and eligible for the rate of gain contest at the fair. Weigh-in be done at the fairgrounds in Lisbon Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

All steers must weigh a minimum of 350 pounds; do not ask to tag any underweight steer. The committee suggests that the steer not weigh more than 700 pounds (target weight 500-600 pounds).

Steers should have a clean, nylon, beef-type rope halter on before unloading. Owners are solely liable for their steer during weigh-in, and it is recommended that steers be halter broke before Nov. 17.

All calves should be dehorned and castrated. Calves must be castrated before they are eight months old to show at the fair.
