Poultry
  • Look for Poultry Testing information to come out in May or June 
    • The pullorum-typhoid test has once again been suspended by the Kansas Department of Agriculture for the 2020 show season – this will cover both the 2020 Butler County Fair and the 2020 Kansas State Fair. Suspending of the testing requirements is due to the continued shortage of the antigen required for the testing.
