Livestock exhibits reopen at Dubuque Co. Fair after sick pig removed
DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) - Everything is on schedule and all barns have reopened to the public at the Dubuque County Fair, after a sick pig caused their closure on Wednesday.
The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach said some animals have left early for traffic control ahead of Thursday night’s concert.
The livestock barns were closed temporarily out of an abundance of caution after a veterinarian was called in to check on a pig that showed signs of illness.
The vet reportedly saw symptoms, and a veterinarian from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship was called in to assist. Officials ran tests and samples from the pig were sent to the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab in Ames.
No other animals have been quarantined.
