Animals on Display

Please be aware that some types of animals are not at the Show for the full four days of the Show. Remember too, that although many animals are domesticated they can cause injury and should be treated with caution.

Avoid accidents with animals

          Avoid quick movements or loud noises that may frighten the animals.

Do not poke, tease or imitate the sound the animal makes.

Beware of standing behind the animals, as livestock can kick forward, sideways and backwards.

Only pat the animals if the owner is present and gives permission.

Move slowly in single file around livestock.

Allow enough space between you and the animals to avoid being stepped on or kicked.

Most animals tend to be aggressive when protecting their young. Be extra careful around newborn animals.

Touch animals gently and don’t push or shove, but only when allowed to do so.

Always wash your hands after touching animals.  Hand washing facilities are located at the entry and exit points of animal pavilions.
