Chris Hooks, president of the Junior Fair Livestock Sale Committee says they have seen a big drop in the number of rabbits to be sold this year.
Listen to Mike Smith's interview with Hooks prior to the start of livestock auctions for the 2012 Ross County Fair...
Contrary to recent rumors, Ross County Fair Board Member Phil Hurtt said, Tuesday, there have not been any confirmed cases of swine flu at the fair.
"We've had a couple of animals that have gotten sick, but the veterinarian has concluded that these animals had mostly stress."
He said veterinarians check the fair livestock at least twice a day.
As a general precaution, though, Hurtt said fairgoers are encouraged to wash their hands any time they leave the livestock area.
Recently, the Associated Press reported the swine flu virus had been linked to the already concluded Ohio State Fair. A Clark County resident who was at the state fair in Columbus was confirmed as having swine flu.
The other 14 cases in the state have all been tied to last month's Butler County Fair.
