We know it seems like forever ago, but there is still a concern about Ractopamine products in the show swine industry. However, we have the materials you need to be prepared for this year’s fair. Located on our county website are several documents that help explain what Ractopamine is, how to provide good nutrition practices, and two forms that declare non-use of the products containing Ractopamine.
One form is for the producer to complete (who you purchased your hogs from). The other form is for the parent or guardian to complete upon arrival to fair. If you raised your own hogs, you just need to complete the parent or guardian form. All materials can be found at this link: https://morgan.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development/morgan-county-fair under Swine Materials.
