Livestock Sample Collection Procedure

The Ogemaw County Fair has the legal authority to require drug testing under the Animal Industry Act, Act 466 of 1988 as amended in Section 40(3): “A fair, exhibition, esposition, or show authority may require additional testing or vaccination of animals before entry, and during the fair, exhibition, esposition, or show.”

All samples will be collected by a licensed veterinarian or authorized representative of the Ogemaw County Fair. Testing supplies are located in the Fair Office.

The individual and/or organization requesting a drug test will be responsible for the cost incurred for the test if the test comes back negative.  Presently, the cost for this test is $35.00.  The cost incurred from a test with a prohibited drug present will be the responsibility of the owner of the animal that has tested positive.  At this time, the cost of the confirmation testing is $150.00.
