Updated May, 2013.
All Livestock Show Participants must download the 2013 SAFF Livestock Rules and Regulations Acknowledgement Form, then print, sign and return it to their show superintendent.
All other Livestock participants should mail their signed copy to:
1034 Champion Ferry Road, Gaffney, SC 29341
Failure to do so will result in them not being allowed to participate in SAFF 2013. No Exceptions.
Please note: Parking is at a premium at this event. PLEASE DO NOT PARK YOUR LIVESTOCK TRAILERS IN THE PUBLIC PARKING LOT! They should be parked either in the open exercise arena near Fanning Bridge, or behind the covered arena, along the fence along Airport Rd. Anyone parking their trailer in the public area will be asked to move it – and it’ll be a lot harder finding a good place to park it then, than if it was parked right the first time.
