4-H Family Livestock Family Nomination

Tagging in Osage County will be recorded differently this year. To eliminate the problem of mistaken tag numbers between siblings, there will be “Family Tagging.”  A form, available on the District’s 4-H website under “Osage Events & Information” must be filled out. Read the form carefully! Each family will be required to bring one completed form to weigh-in.  Form information will be confirmed by the Office.

NOTE: During registration at the fair weigh-in, the family must declare what child is showing which animal. Once declared, the child will be linked to that animal for the duration of the fair. This will ensure Livestock Fairbook Rules are followed by individual 4-H members (i.e. No exhibitor may show more than two animals in any one class.).  Records will not be kept from one fair to the next. This will allow different members to show different animals at different fairs. Please contact the Extension Office with any questions. We want this to go as smoothly as possible for all Osage County Livestock families.
