Again this year, all Drug Use Notification Forms (DUNF) will be completed electronically. Please fill out the electronic DUNF before Wednesday, September 8th at 5:00pm. You will receive a confirmation email with the details of your DUNF after it is submitted. If any information on the DUNF form changes between the time the form was submitted and fair check-in, the committee will ask you to complete a new DUNF at check-in. If nothing has changed you may proceed to the next step in the check-in line. Please use your entire animal ID/scrapie ID. DUNF forms are required by the Ohio Department of Agriculture for all market animals, lactating dairy cows, and lactating dairy goats. Click here to access the electronic DUNF.
4-H and FFA members bringing poultry or dairy projects to the fair are also encouraged to enter the Senior Fair’s Open Poultry and Open Dairy Shows. Entries and more information about these shows are available in the Senior Fair Premium Book. Click here for more information.
