Anderson County Beef  Tagging

AN Co Beef Tagging Only

Since the onset of the COVID-19, things have been fluid for us here in the 4-H world. With that being said, since the first original information regarding the cancellation of weigh-ins, KSRE and Kansas 4-H have now said that we CAN have tag dates as long as we are using the recommended "social distancing". With this being said, we feel that we can now offer two dates to TAG ONLY.

The next beef tagging event will be at the Anderson County Fairgrounds in Garnett on Thursday, April 16th from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

We ask that you have your animals tied in the trailer and you have someone with you that can go in and tag your own animal/s. We will take all precautions necessary to disinfect our tagger and use social distancing so we ask that you please do the same and not get out of your vehicle until it is your turn to be tagged.

We will also have available all state paperwork and DNA envelopes available for those of you planning to go on to KJLS or State fair. Again, things in the 4-H world are ever-changing so we ask for your patience as we all work through all of this together.

Lastly, if you have any questions or concerns please email Janae at jmcnally@ksu.edu.
