4-H Animal ID Deadline May 15

All breeding beef, dairy, dog, dairy goats, meat goats, horse, lama, poultry, rabbit, sheep and swine animal projects need to be identified by May 15th. Tags should arrive in the Extension office by March 20.

In most cases, Minnesota 4-H families have the option of identifying their animals online, with all data entry to be completed by midnight on May 15. If using the paper ID process, all forms must be postmarked or submitted to the county Extension office by May 15.

Detailed information will be sent to 4-H members who are currently enrolled in any of the above listed project areas. If you have not yet re-enrolled and/or need to update your project area enrollment, visit or contact your Extension office immediately so that the proper ID information can be sent to you.
