Fair board votes to allow younger exhibitors

The Quay County Fair Board recently voted at a meeting to allow 6-, 7-, and 8-year-olds to compete in the livestock show at the fair this year.

The young exhibitors will be allowed to show all species at the Aug. 11-14 event and be eligible to earn a spot at the junior livestock sale during the fair.

All animals must meet tag-in and fair-entry dates. Families interested in having children in those ages compete at the fair should contact the Quay County Extension Office in Tucumcari at (575) 461-0562 for tag-in dates for each animal division.
