County Fair & State Fair Swine Exhibitors
Dr. Tia Kastenson will be providing health checks for local swine exhibitors. Health checks will be completed on weekends throughout July. Exhibitors do not need to be present for the check.
Note: Dr. Kastenson only does health checks for shows/transport. If your pigs are showing signs of disease, please contact a veterinarian dedicated to large animals.

Health Check Request
State Fair Exhibitors Only
Samples for PRRSV and PEDV testing must be submitted in a collection tube. A collection tube can be provided upon request.
The collection tube must be dropped off at the clinic, located at 4438 N. Raynor Ave, Union Grove, WI 53182, during our business hours between July [dates coming soon]. Samples submitted outside of this window will inquire an additional fee.
PRRSV and PEDV tests for State Fair exhibitors are $95, and payment is required at the time of test submission.
Certificate Cost & Payment
Health certificates are $65 for up to 4 pigs, and $5 for each additional pig. Payment is required before certificates are released to exhibitors.
If paying by credit card, payment must be made in-person at the clinic. The clinic is located at 4438 N. Raynor Ave., Union Grove, WI 53182. If paying with check or cash, payment can be made at the clinic or at the time of the health check.
A $5 discount will be applied on the health certificate if payment is cash or check.
Health certificates will be issued electronically and multiple copies can be printed.
Dr. Kastenson will primarily only handle health checks for County Fairs and State Fair. Health checks for non-fair shows will be on a case by case basis. Health certificates for non-fair shows are $85 for up to 4 pigs, and $5 for each additional pig.
