Livestock Clinics for All Animal Exhibitors
(Bay, Calhoun, Gadsden, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Walton, and Washington Counties in Florida, Geneva and Houston Counties in Alabama, and Miller and Seminole Counties in Georgia)
*The deadline has passed for ordering vaccines but we would still like to have a headcount of those planning to attend either of the clinics.
The Jackson County Cattleman’s Association is sponsoring two educational Animal Science Clinics that will be centered on show calf health, nutrition, showmanship and record keeping.
The first clinic will be held on September 12, 2015 beginning at 8:30 AM at the Jackson County Ag Center on Highway 90, Marianna. The focus of this clinic will be animal health and nutrition and those animals having not been previously vaccinated, may receive respiratory and/or blackleg vaccinations.
The second clinic will be held on September 26, 2015 at 8:30 AM at the Jackson County Ag Center on Highway 90, Marianna. This will be the official weigh-in date for the 2016 Jackson County Fed Cattle Show. The focus of this clinic will be a continuation of animal health including booster vaccinations or first vaccinations, to prevent animal loss from exposure to disease and/or stress during the show season.
For exhibitors who have preregistered, vaccines will be provided free of charge, compliments of Billy Arrighi, our Zoetis representative. Dr. Kim George will be present at 8:30 am, September 26th to write and donate Health Papers to exhibitors. For more information regarding these events, contact the Jackson County 4-H Office at (850) 482-9620.
