Farm Animals and Livestock Displays at Elmvale Fall Fair

Friday, October 7, 2022


All poultry classes suspended for 2022

Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs has issued a Minister’s Order under the Animal Health Act, 2009 due to  confirmed cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) in Ontario domestic poultry. Effective September 23, 2022, this Order temporarily prohibits events where birds commingle, such as bird shows, bird sales and swaps, portions of fairs where birds are exhibited. Strict biosecurity measures will be taken, and unfortunately we are suspending ALL DOMESTIC POULTRY classes in our Elmvale Junior Fair, ( Classes 279 – 290, and 297).
