4-H Animal Programs


Due to the current COVID-19 situation and decisions made by the State 4-H Office based on guidance from campus and the governor's office our livestock tagging and weighing has been cancelled. The priority of 4-H is the health and safety of both our 4-H families and staff. Click here for the document from the State Office with the updated Animal Science Project procedures for tagging, weighing, ID, rate of gain, and registration. Please read this document, and contact us via email if you have any questions. Be aware that the current situation is constantly changing, which means the updates in this document might also change if the situation requires.
