drug use notification forms (dunf's)

Every year, our exhibitors with market animals or animals in lactation (during exhibition) are required by the Ohio Department of Agriculture to fill out a Drug Use Notification Form (DUNF). DUNF’s will be online only. DUNF’s must be filled out PRIOR to your animal stepping foot on the grounds! As a reminder, your animal must be drug-free before it steps onto the fairgrounds for exhibition. Please complete a DUNF for each animal (date and link to be announced).
