Pike County Fair Market Hog and Gilt Show
With the recent information received from the Ohio Department of Agriculture concerning confirmed cases of influenza in swine at two County Fairs in Ohio, the Pike County Agricultural Society has decided to cancel the 2017 Gilt show which was to be held Thursday, August 3rd at 8:00 am.
Market Hogs will arrive at the normal time which is Sunday, July 29th from 6:00-9:00 am. Our Fair Vet will be present and hogs will be checked for signs of illness before unloading. Extension staff, Sr. Fair Board members will not enter trucks or trailers. Unloading will be the responsibility of the exhibitor and parents/guardian. Once unloaded weigh-in crew will assist the exhibitor through the scales and into his or her pen. Disinfectant boot bath stations will be around the swine barn area along with hand sanitation stations.
As a reminder to those visiting our livestock areas during fair week:
- No food or drink will be allowed in the livestock barns
- No strollers, sippy cups or pacifiers are allowed in livestock barns
- Wash hands/or sanitize hands thoroughly, particularly after handling livestock or being in the barn, before eating or touching mouth
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Extension/4-H Office or Fair Board Office at 740-289-4837
Thanks to funding from Pike County Commissioners and a lot of time and effort from Fair Board members the 2017 Fair will see 25 new campsites, plus an upgrade to the water hookups in the entire campground. A lot of hard work, skill and time away from family went into this project. If you see a Fair Board member please take a moment to thank him. #23daysandcountingdown
