DNA Requirements

• Exhibitors are required to purchase, collect and submit DNA hair samples for all market beef, market sheep, market goat, market swine, and heifer entries. Entries of these species that do not include DNA samples are disqualified.

• DNA Kits must be purchased online and will be mailed out. Note the deadlines in order to get the DNA Kit to you via USPS before the completed DNA Kit is due

• Completed DNA specimens must be dropped off at the Kern County Fair Main Office on or before the due date.
There are 3 doors that face South P Street, go to the 2 doors that are next to each other and drop your completed DNA Kit through the drop slot before the deadline.
