Welcome to the Noble County Fair and Show page! We are here to serve the citizens of Noble County. Throughout the year there are several opportunities to showcase the talents and hard work of our communities.  Some opportunities are provided within the county, other opportunities exist outside the county at the district and state level.  Exhibitions such as these are not the culmination of a project work they have completed and to receive feedback on the quality of their work.

  • ATTENTION SWINE EXHIBITORS!

    A few reminder and changes for the swine show:

    • A CVI (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection) within 72 hours that say "The farm of origin of swine has not had any clinical signs or diagnosis of PEDv in the last 10 days" will be required
    • Barn open for swine unloading at 7:00a
    • Swine are not to unload until checked in by Swine Superintendent.
    • No official weigh in.  Weights on cards will be on your honor system.  Scales will be available if needed.   
    • All swine will be dismissed after the show and are not to return.
    • No swine will be allowed back on the fairgrounds for the premium sale.  
     
  • PED Travel Restrictions
    Notification of samples collected from show pigs with diarrhea were positive for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea or PED.  As most of you know, this is a very contagious viral disease of swine only.  It does not affect any other species and consumption of pork is safe.

    In order to stop this disease before we get to Oklahoma Youth Expo we are putting movement restrictions in place for swine only.  Swine for exhibition purposes must have a CVI within 72 hours (3 days) of arriving at the show.  The veterinarian completing the CVI must pt a statement on it that says "The farm of origin of swine has not had any clinical signs or diagnosis of PEDv in the last 10 days".

    Do not commingle swine that have been or are sick with other swine. Be careful when bringing swine that have been exhibited home as this virus is almost 100% deadly to baby pigs.  If you have any questions about biosecurity and prevention please contact your regular veterinarian.

  • 2021 Spring Junior Livestock Show Dedication  
    Noble County spring junior livestock show is dedicated to Alice Kelly 

     

    City girl, Alice Bayles, of Blackwell met Jack Kelly, a country boy from Marland, through mutual friends.  They married and moved to a farm east of Red Rock where they raised their three children, Rachel, Annmarie and Bobby.  They taught their children to love everything agriculture related. 

    When the kids were old enough to join 4-H, Jack had high hopes would want to show pigs as threat was his choice of show animals.  Their showing days started with a Suffolk ewe, Sheba and grew from there.  By the time all three children were showing the had their hands full with a registered Suffolk and Dorset flock, a barn full of pigs, and a heard of various breeds of cattle.  To be a part of the family show team, Alice knew she would have to step up her gam, and oh did she!  She taught herself to sheer sheep, learn genetics and the required material to have purple ribbon show string.  She not only helped her kids but other exhibitors as well, whether it be at the local, county, district, state or national shows. 

     

    Alice is a true advocate of the various aspects that 4-H and FFA ave to offer.  She encouraged not only her children, but she welcomed any child that wanted to hop in the truck for a weekend of livestock judging and speech competitions.  She truly believes the skills that one acquires through these organizations are skills that will help them be successful through out their lives. 

     

    Jack and Alice were very active in the Frontier ag booster club and were recognized as volunteers for the Noble County 4-H program and Frontier FFA chapter.  They willing helped any child who needed it.  In 2019 Alice started a vocational scholarship in Jacks memory. 

    Even after the three Kelly kids had graduated, the family continued to support the Noble County exhibitors by sponsoring awards in the sheep division.

    As a seasoned Lamb Lead exhibitor, Rachel was asked to judge at the Noble County Fall Fair and Noble County Spring Livestock Show.  This led to her accepting to be a Superintendent of the Lamb Lead and later as Sheep Superintendent.  Alice was with her encouraging and helping every step of the way.   

     

    At the 2020 Noble County spring Stock show, Alice was able to put check mark next to "Ribbon Girl" on her bucket list.  Not only did she get to hand the exhibitors their ribbon but she got to shake their hand and congratulate them with a smile. 

     

    After 40 years of being a pharmacist Alice retired in March of 2019.  She loves to travel and being "YaYa" to her grandchildren, Kennedy (4), Evelyn (1), daughters of Aaron and Annmarie Stanford and Wesson (3), Hutlee (1) children of Bobby and Anna Kelly are her number one priority now.  She also has a number of special extended family.  Her family will tee you she is the "Momma, Tatie, Grannie, and YAYA" they know. 

     

    Rumor has it there will be show animals in the barn at la de BAR-K before long.  Jack will be smiling down from heaven knowing there is a next generation of show kids and we know that with Alice's competitive nature there will be another trophy wall full of purple ribbons.
