Swine Exhibitors: Paperwork required at weigh-in

The following forms must be turned in at Swine Weigh-In:

DUNF Forms:

  • DUNF forms are required for market and MQP hogs.
  • DUNF forms should be completed as close to fair weigh-in as possible to ensure the information submitted is correct.
  • Exhibitors need to submit a DUNF for EACH animal.
  • DUNF forms must be completed online BEFORE weigh-in: http://go.osu.edu/fairfielddunf.
    • Exhibitors will receive an email receipt after submitting their online DUNF form.
    • Exhibitors will be asked to show a copy of this receipt (with exhibitor name and tag number) for each animal at weigh-in. This can be done by printing off the email receipt or showing the Show Committee the email receipt on a smartphone.
    • If an exhibitor submits an online DUNF in error (i.e. incorrect species, incorrect tag number), they must notify Leslie Cooksey (25@osu.edu) and submit a new DUNF with the correct information.

Take Home Form: must be turned in before the hog leaves the scale.

“No Ractopamine/Paylean” Affidavit: must be turned in at weigh-in for ALL market hogs.

Showmanship Sign-up for Junior Fair – Online NOW!

Showmanship Sign-ups – these will also be completed online this year. There is a deadline to sign-up that is different for specie. If an exhibitor misses their deadline, have them talk to the specie superintendent to see if they can be added late. We have a cutoff time prior to their show day so that we can pull the report, sort by age, and get this to the superintendent as soon as possible to prepare for their show. The direct link for signing up for showmanship is: http://go.osu.edu/fc2020showmanship

DUNF: Drug Use Notification Forms – Now Online and MUST be completed before WEIGH-IN!

DUNF Forms – These will be completed online this year. I would suggest that exhibitors should not fill them out until as close to weigh-in/move-in day as possible to ensure the information is correct and their market/lactating animal is drug free moving into fair. The link to the online DUNF Form is in each of the 2020 Specie Documents (http://go.osu.edu/2020fairinfo). A direct link to the DUNF is: http://go.osu.edu/fairfielddunf. If someone submits a form with errors, please have them contact Leslie Cooksey at cooksey.25@osu.edu so we can delete that record and they will be asked to submit a new form.

Take Home Forms – NEW and only for 2020

Take Home Forms – NEW and only for 2020: Market Hogs, Market Beef, Market Lambs, Market Goats, and Market Rabbits will have the option to take home animals. Forms must be completed and 2 copies per specie turned in at that specie’s weigh-in (see form for details). There is no reversal on the decision to take home once the forms are turned in. The only exception to this is if any of those youth are selected as Grand and Reserve Champions, those animals must sell at the auction and will no longer be able to be taken home. The direct link for the Take Home Form is: http://go.osu.edu/2020takehome. For additional sale details for exhibitors, visit: https://u.osu.edu/livestocksale/exhibitor-info/
