NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio — 4-H and FFA youth interested in exhibiting a market beef animal at the 2023 Tuscarawas County Fair will need to attend market beef tag-in Dec. 10 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Main Show Arena at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds. There is no make-up date. No pre-registration is needed. More detailed information can be found at 

The Ohio State Fair requires all market beef entered in the 2023 Ohio State Fair to have individual DNA samples taken from each animal that may potentially be entered. These DNA samples must be in the possession of the Ohio State Fair by Jan. 15 (this is not a postmark date). DNA Sample Kits will be available at beef tag-in for those interested in going to the state fair.
