Livestock and horse information

All 4-H members are eligible to participate in the livestock and horse shows at the Missouri State Fair, and all registration is handled through the Missouri State Fair. The State Fair website also provides Official rules and guidelines (PDF) as well.

If showing as a 4-H member, your county staff must sign off on your participation in the fair. The deadlines for each event varies, so make sure to start on it as soon as you decide to participate in a Missouri State Fair livestock or horse show. All show bills and patterns can be found on the State Fair website.

For animal health requirements for the State Fair, contact the Missouri State Veterinarians' office at 573-751-4359.
