Updates to Fairfield County Swine Show Rules – Ractopamine (i.e. Paylean) Free Show

At last evening’s ‘virtual’ Sr. Fair Board meeting (4/21/2020), two changes were made to the Fairfield County swine show rules. Find the updates here: u.osu.edu/nopaylean

All 4-H and FFA members and advisors need to take the time to review the information on the website listed above.

SPECIAL NOTE: During their regular April 21, 2020 Board meeting that was held via video conference, the Fairfield County Sr. Fairboard rescinded two actions from their original motions passed in January regarding their 2020 swine shows. Those two rescinded actions are:

  • The OPEN class swine show is NO LONGER a ractopamine-free show.
  • For the JUNIOR show, the BREEDER is NO LONGER required to sign an affidavit indicating the pig was ractopamine-free at the time the Junior exhibitor acquired it.

The 2020 Junior Fair swine show remains ractopamine-free and the balance of this site reflects the current rules for Junior exhibitors as adopted and later amended.
