Fairs, Shows, Swap Meets (and other Poultry events)

**UPDATE** (7/2/15) It was previously stated by the state veterinarian that swap meets were allowed if held in conjunction with a county, regional, or state fair. That order has now been amended and broaded to PROHIBIT ALL SWAP MEETS, even if they are held in conjunction with a county, regional, or state fair. It is still acceptable to advertise birds for sale and sell them privately directly from an owner's farm.

The Wisconsin State Veterinarian has issued 2 orders regarding poultry movement in Wisconsin. The first places a ban on poultry moving to, or participation in, any swap meets in Wisconsin through the end of 2015. Movement to county, district or state fair is allowed. Second, fair organizaters have to have exhibitors certify that there have been no poultry mortalities on their premises for the 10 calendar days prior to moving their poultry to the event. Death excludes by slaughter, predator, or other accidents. Both orders expire December 31, 2015.
