LIVESTOCK EXHIBITOR CODE OF CONDUCT
as developed by O.F.A.C. (Ontario Farm Animal Council)

The Rockton World’s Fair is committed to responsible animal care and treatment. This Code of Conduct outlines what is expected of livestock exhibitors in the handling and exhibiting of all animals involved with our Fair.

This code has been developed to meet the following objectives:

  • To ensure the health and well-being of all animals at the fair.
  • To demonstrate an accurate and responsible animal care message to the public.
  • To maintain the integrity of all livestock competitions, displays, and sales.
  • Livestock and poultry must be transported to and from the fair in accordance with all humane transport regulations and standards. Loading and unloading must be undertaken using proper equipment and procedures.
  • All animals must be treated and handled in a responsible manner.
  • The well-being of the animals shall take precedence over the demands of owners, sellers, buyers, organizers, sponsors, and officials.
  • The care of all animals must be as consistent as possible with their normal schedules and standards.
  • High standards of nutrition, health, sanitation, environment, and safety must be met at all times. All handling, housing, and veterinary treatment must ensure adequate animal care.
  • Livestock should be prepared with proper training, fitting, and grooming prior to the fair.
  • Excessive disciplining of animals at the fair is unacceptable.
  • Exhibitors are expected to provide adequate training for anyone handling their livestock. Untrained individuals, including fair personnel and visitors, should not be permitted to handle animals or equipment.
  • Exhibitors should take every opportunity to enhance public awareness, education, and appreciation of proper livestock management and handling practices.
  • There will be no tolerance for any mistreatment of animals. Any unacceptable exhibitor conduct will be subject to action including possible elimination from the competition(s) and/or exhibit, at the discretion of the Board.
