The state fair has made a rule change:

                All state fair animals must be weighed-in at the county initial weigh-in and tagged with a county tag. When you weigh-in at the state fair you will be given a state tag at that time.

                For swine this means that both your county and state fair pigs need to be weighed-in at initial weigh-in on  May 2. You may declare which ones are for state at a later date or at the county fair weigh-in.
