Pig Scramble

We regret to inform you that the Pig Scrambles for the 2014 Clarke County Fair have been canceled due to concerns and logistics related to the PED virus that is impacting the swine industry. This decision was not made lightly. However, it’s in the best interest of the youth exhibitors and the livestock. The Swine Committee will be developing some alternative events for the 4-H and FFA youth for next year to be able to secure a pig for the 2015 fair. Thank you for your understanding.
