NEWS RELEASE: Poultry shows canceled across the state.


Showing poultry at fairs only part of 4-H total learning experience.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - 4-H'ers can complete their poultry projects even though the threat of the H5 avian influenza virus will prevent them from taking their birds to the Indiana county and state fairs this season, a Purdue Extension 4-H youth development specialist says.

Showing and competing at fairs is not a requirement for completing projects and is only one part of the total learning experience 4-H'ers have with their animals, noted Aaron Fisher, who works primarily in 4-H animal science projects.

"The emphasis of the 4-H projects is in all of what the young people learn about their animals," Fisher said. "Showing and selling certainly are valuable experiences, but the greater value of 4-H is the overall learning experience that comes with raising and caring for their animals on a daily basis."

The Indiana State Board of Animal Health decided Wednesday (May 27) to prohibit commingling of birds from different locations, including at shows, exhibitions and public sales. The restriction applies to all 92 county fairs and the Indiana State Fair.
