No Poultry Show For S.B. County Fair

Several hundred FFA and 4-H members are disappointed following an announcement from The Santa Barbara County Fair. Fair officials voted this week to cancel the poultry show scheduled for the upcoming fair in July. The decision was made due to a current outbreak of Newcastle Disease.

Fair officials are currently looking for an alternative to the poultry show.
