The Cherry County 4-H Livestock Committee has made a few changes concerning Market Beef projects for 2017. There will not be a Rate of Gain Contest for market steers and heifers. Consequently, there is no longer a mandatory county ID and weigh-in.
County only exhibitors will need to tag and have ID sheets turned in to the Extension Office by April 15 to be eligible to show at county fair. Tags and ID sheets are available at the Extension Office.
Exhibitors that plan to show at State Fair or Ak-Sar-Ben will need to have EID tags, DNA collected and ID sheets submitted to the Extension Office by April 15. Verification will need to take place by a livestock committee member or Extension Staff. Stay tuned for further updates about requirements for State Fair weigh-in. If you plan to show at State Fair or Ak-Sar-Ben please contact the Cherry County Extension Office so we can keep you updated on all the requirements.
