MDARD’s Fairs and Exhibition Program protects, regulates and promotes animal health through visits and educational outreach to fairs and exhibitions. We work with these events to ensure all appropriate livestock have official identification, appear healthy, have necessary tests charts and interstate health certificates when needed and that everyone is following proper biosecurity.

If you are hosting a fair or exhibition, visit our resource page for handouts, signs, and other tools that will help make your event a success! Questions? Contact us at 800-292-3939.
