    4-H calves. Senior Showmanship if for 4-H members 18 years of age and older by January 1, 2003. Intermediate Showmanship is for members 14 years to 17 years as of January 1, 2003. Junior Showmanship if for members 10 years to 13 years as of January 1, 2003.

Beef classes offered are Beef Heifer Calf, Beef Junior Yearling, Beef Senior Yearling and Beef Steer Class. Classes with fewer than three entries will be combined with others.

    The Fair is also sponsoring a Tie Stall Competition to make the livestock tie up area attractive to fair visitors. Clubs are invited to decorate their area of the barn. Themes within agriculture are encouraged. Judging will be from 9 am to 2 pm.

    Avonmore Fair is also offering a Children's Special for boys and girls who were not 10 years old on January 1, 2003. Participants may use a 4-H calf at the show or bring their own calf from home for the class. Calves can be either dairy or beef. Participants can register on the day of the show by

    11 am.

Participants must also have a parent release form signed (on entry form) releasing Roxborough Agricultural Society from all responsibilities for the participants actions.

    This year only active and current 4-H members shall be allowed to assist in the preparation of livestock at the Avonmore 4-H Open Calf Rally.

    Deadline for entries is Friday July 4. Avonmore Fair will review the numbers and if numbers do not warrant either the dairy or beef show proceeding all entries will be notified of any show cancellation.
