Cards needed for showsParticipants in state swine shows and exhibits will be required to have official premise identification cards as of Aug. 1, per a measure passed by the state Board of Agriculture on Wednesday. The board enacted the requirement because of the threat of a swine flu epidemic. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry will issue the cards at no charge and keep the information confidential. Officials say the rule will protect economic and social interests.
