Hay bale entries needed now for North Thompson Fall Fair analysis

Submit an early entry such as baled hay to be analyzed for it’s nutritional value

Deadline for entries into the baled hay and silage classes requiring feed analysis are due into the entry secretary by next Tuesday

By Jane Milburn

This is the time to start thinking about your North Thompson Fall Fair entry submissions.  This is especially true if you have to submit an early entry such as baled hay to be analyzed for it’s nutritional value.

The Fall Fair is most fortunate to have sponsors for this division, which provides a very inexpensive way to know the value of your feed simply by entering a class.  Thank you to Sure Crop Feeds in Kamloops, and Noble Tractor and Equipment Ltd., also in Kamloops, for sponsoring the feed analysis costs for this worthy class.

Deadline for entries into the hay classes is Aug. 5, so that we can get the hay gathered and off to the lab, and then returned in time for the fair.

You will find all of the rules and entry information in the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo’s 2014 entry catalogue, which can be picked up at local businesses and newsstands, or by going to our website at www.fallfair-rodeo.com.   Page 20 has the information you require under Field Crops.

You can also pick up a catalogue, drop off your entries, or get more information at our Fall Fair office, opening next to the Barriere IDA Pharmacy on Tuesday, Aug. 5.  Office hours will be Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until Wednesday, Aug. 27.

This year the North Thompson Fall Fair is 65 years old.  Make sure you check out our ‘Celebrating 65 Years’ Heritage Display while at the fair.  You’ll find it inside the banquet hall connected to the Agriplex, along with a number of other interesting and informative booths and commercial vendors.

If anyone has memorabilia from past fairs that they would like to see displayed in our heritage area during the fair, please feel free to contact Jane Milburn at 250-672-9391, or call in at the Fall Fair office in the Barriere IDA Mall.

Remember, this year we are challenging everyone to help us be able to count 65 entries in the Fall Fair parade on Saturday, Aug. 30, to help celebrate our 65th anniversary.  Get creative – join the fun!
