Market Beef Weigh In
- If you are planning to show Market Beef for the 2013 4-H year there are two options for the required I.D. and weigh-in. Weigh-in dates are February 23rd or February 24th at Valentine Livestock Auction from 2:00 -3:00 pm, CT. Calves need to be 4-H tagged prior to weigh-in. ID sheets, bills of sale and ear tags need to be picked up at the Extension Office. Tags will cost $1.25 each. If you have ear tags from last year, or tags still in from a feeder calf project, those can be used unless you plan on exhibiting at the Nebraska State Fair or Ak-Sar-Ben. Bill of Sale and ID sheets must be turned in at the time you weigh. Make sure you have all required signatures. If you are planning to show at Ak-Sar-Ben or State Fair, DNA hair samples will need to be collected. Cost for each DNA sample is $6. Please share this information with any new youth that might be considering a Market Beef project, but haven’t enrolled in 4-H yet.
