Effective for 2022, the use of Ractopamine (i.e. Paylean) is no longer banned in Fairfield County

Effective for 2022, the use of Ractopamine is no longer banned for the Fairfield County Fair.

During their regular meeting on February 15, 2022 the Senior Fair Board is expected to vote to NO LONGER make the Fairfield County Junior Fair swine show ractopamine-free. This will supersede any other announcements regarding the use of ractopamine found on this page.

Previous Junior Fair rules that banned the use of ractopamine were removed from the Junior Fair Rule Book (under Swine Rules). Additionally, this update was shared with advisors in late February/early March at our mandatory advisor club update.
