You must have the certification of the Missouri Show Me Quality Assurance (MSMQA) if you plan on showing at most fairs in the state of Missouri, as well as the Missouri State Fair.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture Office of the State Veterinarian has  released the following Poultry Exhibition Policy:

“Due to the highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak, out of state poultry will not be allowed at exhibitions in Missouri until further notice. Additional restrictions may occur if circumstances change. This does not prevent a county fair from banning poultry exhibitions or exhibitors from making a decision to not exhibit poultry.”

Here are the links to the Department’s Avian Influenza Exhibition Policy and the Avian Influenza - Fact Page:
