The Auglaize County Senior Fair Board along side with the Sale Committee have agreed to be Ractopamine(Paylean) FREE for the 2020 fair season. This decision has been made final. The following are the proper steps to going Ractopamine Free for the fair.
During online fair entry (which is mandatory) there will be a box to check stating that your hogs are Ractopamine free
At the time of weigh ins the Saturday prior to fair, an affidavit will be signed ensuring your hogs have been Ractopamine free from time of acquisition to harvest.
If the affidavit is not signed you WILL NOT be eligible to show Open, Born & Raised, or Junior show at the fair and your hogs will leave the premises Sunday night with the open class hogs.
This is a one year ruling and will be re-evaluated for next year.
It should be noted that we are doing this in order to keep up with the standards of the U.S. pork industry.
If you have any questions feel free to contact the fair office at 419-738-2515
