Completing the Drug Use Notification Form has been moved online this year and you can begin completing this form! It can be filled out easily using your mobile device or tablet. Because of the signatures that are required at the bottom of both youth and parent/guardian, it will likely be easier than using a mouse on a desktop computer/laptop. Below is the information that you’ll need to know in order to get this completed. Please have all your forms completed BEFORE you arrive at the fairgrounds on Weigh-In Day (September 10) to ensure a smooth weigh-in process. If your animal(s) is NOT getting tagged/leg banded until day of weigh-in, still complete the form in advance. We ask that you enter “NA” into the Animal ID field and the staff will be able to enter the correct tag # at the scales.

Who Needs to Complete the Drug Use Notification Form?

  • If your child(ren) are taking one of the following MARKET animals, it is required that a Drug Use Notification Form (DUNF) be completed ONLINE for each animal, per the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
