A. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS: 
1. Health certificates signed by an accredited veterinarian and other required testing will be valid for the entire 202qshow season. If traveling to multiple New England States for exhibition, see the Memorandum – Livestock Health Certificates for the 2022 Show Season, for additional requirements.
2. All animals and poultry entered at fairs and shows must be in good health and in proper physical condition and will be examined at the exhibition by the barn superintendent. Evidence of poor condition or infectious or contagious disease or failure to produce the necessary documents for health certification, vaccination or testing will result in ejection. The Connecticut Department of Agriculture Livestock Inspector’s decision is final.
3. Health charts and proof of vaccination where applicable are the responsibility of the exhibitor. 
4. Each barn superintendent will collect and hold the Health Certificates from each exhibitor. Animals not in compliance with the state regulations for shows and fairs will not be allowed. A complete list, containing the name of the exhibitor, address, animal ID (ear tag, tattoo, leg band), breed and age of each animal, and the total head count will be made available to the State Livestock Inspector and forwarded to the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Regulatory Services by the fair superintendent. All animals and poultry present on the grounds should be identified on this list. Any animal that is rejected should be noted as such with a brief statement of reason. Rejected animals or poultry should be removed from the grounds as soon as possible. Any concerns about the health of any animal or bird should be reported to the State Livestock Inspector or the Fair Veterinarian immediately. 
5. Isolate all exhibited animals and poultry upon their return to the farm from other animals and poultry for 3-4 weeks to reduce the risk of disease exposure and transmission. Call your local veterinarian if your animals or poultry become sick to help you with diagnosis and treatment. 
6. Contact the Bureau of Regulatory Services at 860-713-2504 if you have any questions. 

B. CONNECTICUT ANIMALS
6. SWINE: All swine must originate from Connecticut herds that are tested for Brucellosis and Pseudorabies on a yearly basis. All swine must have a health certificate issued within 60 days prior to the first show by an accredited veterinarian. If the swine are purchased from a tested herd, a bill of sale from the Connecticut producer must be presented to the State Veterinarian’s office before a Connecticut Exhibition Test card will be issued to the new owner.

C. OUT OF STATE ANIMALS:
6. SWINE: Swine that are 3 months of age and older must be negative to Brucellosis and Pseudorabies tests and have a health certificate stating such within 30 days of their first show date by an accredited veterinarian. Barrows are exempt from Brucellosis testing but must have a negative Pseudorabies test. Swine under 3 months of age must originate from a Brucellosis-free and Pseudorabies qualified herd and the herd test dates and qualified herd numbers must be on the health certificate.
