Persons who wish to operate or conduct a public exhibition of livestock must obtain a permit prior to the start of the exhibition.
All animals must be examined by the official veterinarian on the day they are admitted to the exhibition and at least once daily during the exhibition. All out-of-state animals must meet Minnesota importation requirements. No animal may enter or be at a public exhibition that is showing clinical signs of any infectious, contagious or communicable disease, including ringworm and warts.
Always check with exhibition management for additional requirements.
