- Free of other contagious, infectious, and communicable diseases (erysipelas, atrophic rhinitis, etc.); otherwise, they will not be allowed to show and will be released from the fairgrounds.
- All hogs should have an official federally recognized USDA 840 tag in one ear. The old, button Arkansas premise tags should not be used as they are not official USDA tags. The tags do not have to be electronic. If someone purchases a hog and it has a premise ID tag and that tag has an official USDA seal on it, it is acceptable.
