Livestock Tagging Image


Janae McNally, Frontier District 4-H Agent, announced 4/30/19:

Due to the occurrence of the Swine PED outbreak across the United States, we have decided to forgo the swine weigh-in for Anderson County/Osage County. Consequently, there will be no swine rate of gain contest this year at the fair. Youth enrolled in the swine project will still be expected to bring all market swine (market and breeding for OS CO) to be tagged, which will occur in the member’s trailer. 

Youth enrolled in the Rabbit, Fowl or Breeding Livestock projects(s) must own and have possession of his/her animal(s) by June 1.
