The Goat Committee will be holding a pre-fair meeting for goat exhibitors on Wednesday, September 8 at 6:30 PM at the Goat/Sheep Arena at the Fairgrounds.
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.
