Entry

2017 Online Entry System

Please read this entirely before beginning your online entry!

 

Our online program allows for individual accounts, or group accounts. Individual accounts are just what they are. One account for one person. Group accounts can be used for families with more than one exhibitor. Please use the following instructions to create your account!

Our program will say that you will be entering descriptive entries, as we do not have the capabilities to enter in livestock information (we will obtain the necessary information during the show at check in). PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PREMISE ID READY TO ENTER WHEN PROMPTED (you will have to enter it in twice when registering, these instructions tell where).  Please see the bottom of this document with the final steps to complete your entry.

For an individual account:

Use the link provided on the website to go to the Blue Ribbon Online Entry. Under the “Create Account” tab, click on individual account.
When prompted, fill out the following account information.
Make sure to remember your login information, including username, email that you used for your account, and password. You will need this information to log into your account again if you want to add any entries later on.
Once your account has been made, you may start adding which entries you would like to have. In your account, click on the tab that says entries. This will bring you to the screen to add your information in. Please select the department beef cattle. The next screen will show if you would like to add either a breeding heifer or a market animal. Click on the correct lot, and then you will be given the options as to what class to enter.

Upon selecting which class you will be in, the next screen that will appear will prompt you to enter in a description. In the description field, please enter in your farm premise ID number. THIS IS THE LAW!  We Are required as a show to obtain this information (Premise ID) for the Wisconsin DATCP. Please make sure you enter your Premise ID!


Once you have entered in you premise ID number, you can click the “save entry” button. Your entry has been saved and the program brings you back to the screen to add more entries. Once you have completed adding in the number of entries you would like, you can review your entries by clicking the “review entries” tab. This will allow you to edit or change any entries before you submit them.
After reviewing your entries, click on the “items/checkout” tab. You will see a screen that gives you a summary of your total fee. To finalize your entry you will need to accept the terms and conditions and then click submit. Your entries should be completed and you should be shown a summary of your entries. Save this for your records and for the show.

Please be aware that there is a $2 convenience fee that is charged per exhibitor. This is only a one-time fee so it will only be charged once, even if you would like to come back later and add more entries.

To see a full list of your entries, you may click on the history tab. This will give you a full summary of what you entered, in addition to your total balance due for your entries. This is the amount that you will need to submit to complete the payment for your entry.

For a group account:
Use the link provided on the website to go to the Blue Ribbon Online Fair Entry. Under the “Create Account” tab, click on group account.
Select the group Account type, either family or club/group
Fill out the following information. When it asks for a group nickname, this will be the name in which your account is made. This is often times the family name, or last name. In the case of very popular last names (Smith, Johnson, Anderson, etc.), please use your last name followed by a number (i.e. Smith 3). Continue to fill out the following information for the group account.

Make sure to remember your login information, including username, the email that was used to make the group account, and password. You will need this information to log into your account again if you want to add any entries later on.


To start adding entries, click on the tab that says Manage Grp Accounts, then select add account. This will allow you to add individual exhibitors under the same account. Enter in the account information for that individual. Once you have made the exhibitor account for that person, click on that exhibitor ribbon to select which exhibitor you would to add entries for. Next click the tab that says entries. This will allow you to start picking your classes. Click the beef cattle department, then click if you want to enter a breeding heifer or a market animal. Then you may select the class that you would like to enter (Angus, Hereford, etc.).

You will come to another screen where it will prompt you for a description. In the description box, please enter in your farm premise ID number. THIS IS THE LAW!  We Are required as a show to obtain this information (Premise ID) for the Wisconsin DATCP. Please make sure you enter your Premise ID!

Once you have entered in your premise ID, then click save entry. Once you have saved the entry, the program will bring you back to add more entries.

One you check that box, you can click the box that says Checkout Group. The next screen will show you the confirmation that you have for each exhibitor. You may do this process as many times as you would like for as many entries as you would like to have entered.
