6 –2012 Van Wert County Fair
In memory of ...
Bob
became
completely in
charge of the
Thorough-
bred Racing
Gates in
1986. Bob’s
professional-
ism garnered
great respect
from both co-
workers and
employees.
Friends and Fair workers always enjoyed yearly visits
with Bob and Carol (Bob’s wife) at the fair. Racing at
the Van Wert County Fair will never be the same without
Bob, but his memory will live on in the hearts of all who
knew him.
Ray and JoAnne
Prowant started
working at the Van
Wert County Fair in
1948 for JoAnne’s
father, W.S. Myers
of the Myers Conces-
sion Company. They
sold Frozen Cherry
Custard along with
other food items.
In 1966, they
formed Durant En-
terprises, and began
to buy amusement
rides, and increase
their line of conces-
sion trailers.
Today, their com-
pany services many
county fairs, festivals and company picnics. You can still
find the Frozen Cherry Custard on the midway at the Van
Wert County Fair this year, as well as many other treats
offered by Durant Enterprises.
Kenny enjoyed all his time
with anyone he met or worked
alongside at the Van Wert
County Fair. He became owner
of the Farmers Daughter 36
years ago and enjoyed the peo-
ple he served. He donated his
time and assets to the Van Wert
County Fairgrounds, Van Wert
county 4-H, and Crestview FFA.
Kenny and his brother Roger
dedicated over 75 combined
years in owning and operating
the Farmers Daughter. Kenny
will be greatly missed by his employees, and Van Wert
Fair Members.
Ethan did the
Patriotic Show
at the opening of
the Senior Fair
Horse Show at
the Van Wert
County Fair for
the last two years
with his horse
Daphine. He
was a student
at Ohio State
University, he
studied BSBA
Accounting and
was Assistant
in the Equine
Program. His
favorite Quote: “Lets Mount up and Move out”. He
loved Rodeos, Horseback riding, camping and fishing.
He will greatly missed by the 4-H and Van Wert County
Fair Directors.

LIVESTOCK SALE / JUNIOR FAIR CONSTITUTION

The Junior Fair Livestock Sale is designed to encourage young
people to undertake livestock projects and to reward them for
their efforts. Local businesses and organizations, families and
individuals support the members through purchase of animals
at or over market price. The order of species sold is rotated each
year, with the gallon of milk sold first.

In 2012, the order of sale will be: Milk, Champion Steers (due to
slaughter facility availability), Turkeys, Goats, Steers, Dairy
Feeder Calves, Rabbits, Sheep, swine, Broilers and Roasters

Livestock do not need to meet weight requirements listed for
each species in order to go through Junior Fair Livestock Sale.
They must, however, be within these weight limits to be eligible
for Champion and Reserve Champion. 4-H and FFA under weight
and overweight animals will be given a show grade of B.

Dairy Beef Feeder: 400-600lbs
Hogs: 220-300lbs
Meat Pen Rabbits: 3-5lbs each
Single Fryer: 3-5lbs each
Market Goats: 55lbs or higher

Livestock in the Junior Fair Livestock Sale will be sold in dollar
increments above support price. This will allow buyers to know
the immediate amount of money that they are donating to the
livestock exhibitor. The buyer’s bill will be the amount of the bid
if the animal is to be sold back at support price. If the buyer is
keeping the animal to be slaughtered by an approved packer,
the amount owed will be the bid price plus the support price.

A commission of 2.5% is taken from the individual sales for the
maintenance and support of the Junior Fair Board and the
payment of livestock check-off fees.

Livestock exhibitors may only go through the sale ring one (1)
time per species. Exhibitors are allowed two (2) trips maximum
through the sale ring.

Examples:
a) An exhibitor with two (2) sheep will only be allowed to go
through the sale ring one (1) time.

b) An exhibitor with two (2) market lambs and two (2) market
hogs will be allowed two (2) trips through the sale ring, one (1)
trip for lambs, and one (1) trip for hogs.

All champions must go through the sale ring. This will count as
the exhibitor’s trip for that species. If an exhibitor has Grand &
Reserve Champion in the same species, both the Grand &
Reserve Champions will sale. Or, if an exhibitor has Grand &
Reserve Champions in two (2) species, all four (4) will sell.

If seller is unsure at the time of weigh-in whether an animal
will be entered in the sale, the decision to sell must be made
and reported by Monday, September 3, at 10:00am
to the Junior Fair Office.

A terminal show is one in which all animals shown must be
slaughtered.

A terminal sale is one in which all animals consigned to sale
must be sold through the auction and slaughtered.

Dairy Feeders sold through the sale must go to the support
buyer. The Van Wert County Junior Fair Sale is a terminal sale.
Animals not sold in the sale, which are a part of terminal show,
will be sold at the support price and loaded on an approved
packer truck. Violators of this rule may be prosecuted.

Participation by dairy exhibitors in the sale of milk will be
counted as once through the ring (this includes any member
receiving proceeds from the dairy sale).

See individual livestock departments as listed in the Junior Fair
Book for more guidelines and restrictions on each species.

Agricultural Society (Senior Fair Board) in order to promote
progress in community-wide interests of agriculture, education,
arts, and sciences, and to improve the standard of living
throughout the county.
2) The Junior Fair is a consortium of youth organizations run
cooperatively under the sanction of the Agricultural Society for
the purpose of showcasing educational youth programs
throughout the county. The Junior Fair Board utilizes authority
vested in it by the Senior Fair Board and the cooperating youth
organizations to regulate Junior Fair events and activities. In so

organizations to formulate their own policies for membership.
3) The 4-H program is a major component of the youth
development program area of Ohio State University Extension,
an outreach educational organization aimed at meeting the
needs of county citizenry. All rules pertaining to 4H program
policies come under the jurisdiction of the Extension Agent in
charge of the 4-H program.
4) The FFA is an educational program run through the public
schools resourced by the Ohio Department of Vocational
Education. All rules pertaining to FFA policies come under the
jurisdiction of the FFA advisors, respectively.
5) Other youth organizations, such as Scouts, etc. are recognized
as self-sufficient entities responsible for their own policies and
regulations.
6) The rules listed in the Junior Fair handbook and minutes are
derived from this cooperative authority of the Senior Fair Board,
the Junior Fair Board, and youth organizations involved.
Enforcement of such may be handled by any Junior Fair official,
including Junior Fair Board advisors, members, and Senior Fair
Board members.
7) Junior Fair rules will be enforced, suspended, or added to

and build positive esteem in young people.
2) 4-H is open to all young people, ages 8-19, (4-H rules state
you must be no older than 18 on January 1 of current year) of
any race, color, religion, creed, or ability. Clubs may also accept

of the time and effort that each member puts into his/her club
through projects, community service, and leadership activities.
