  • 2022 Green Lake County Fair Livestock Auction Tags – Due March 1 
    • March 1 Deadline!
    • If you are planning to enter a market animal in the Green Lake County Fair Livestock Auction, then you must complete the tagging form located online at https://forms.gle/VaPUsAMvvYuGoo4W9
    • Even if you are only thinking about entering a market animal, you should complete the form as it is better to be safe and timely!
    • There will be a $10 LATE FEE, per species, per exhibitor, per month charged on all late entries (late entries accepted until tagging is completed in April). These fees must be paid prior to your animals being tagged. Make checks for late entries payable to: Green Lake County Livestock Council and mailed to 571 County Road A Green Lake, WI 54941.
    • Wisconsin State Fair tags- We know that some of you tag your animals with State Fair tags and that is acceptable at the Green Lake County Fair Auction. We would still like to know that you are interested in participating in the Green Lake County Fair Livestock Auction so we still ask you to complete this form and indicate that no Green Lake County tags are needed.
    • The maximum number of tagged animals per exhibitor/per species is eight, which includes State Fair tags.
  • Animal Identification & Tag Pick Up
  • Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) Certification- Fair requirement to show
