Animal ID sheets (animal ownership affidavit forms) are due to the Extension Office no later than June 15.  ID sheets and ear tags may be picked up at the Extension Office or you can find the ID forms at under Cherry County 4-H Project Resources.

This applies to:

  • Breeding Heifers
  • Feeder Calves
  • FFA Bulls
  • Bucket Calves
  • Cow/Calf pairs
  • Dairy & Meat Goats
  • Breeding & Market Sheep
  • Market & Breeding Hogs
  • Rabbits
  • Horse (unless turned in with District entries)
  • Dairy Heifers

There will not be a county-wide I.D. day for livestock. There is no need to take pictures of your animals.

Be sure to review the information on the Sandhills Production breeding heifer classes on our website at under Cherry County 4-H Project Resources.

If you are planning to show livestock at State Fair or AK-SAR-BEN, DNA samples must be turned by June 15. State Fair Breeding Heifers must have a tattoo and registration papers. Registration papers need to be submitted (unless showing commercial) along with a Breeding Nomination Card. FFA Stocker Feeders showing at State Fair will need an EID tag and Breeding Nomination Card. 4-H Feeder Calves going to AK-SAR-BEN need an EID tag and DNA collected. A premise ID is required for any animal carrying an EID tag. County only breeding heifers may have a ranch tag or tattoo. If you have questions about the process, please contact Jody at (402) 376-1850 or email
