Animal ID Information - Animal ID's due MAY 15

4-H animal project members will be receiving Animal ID information in their info in mid April. The Animal ID information will cover properly identifying for 2017 and the online animal ID process.

Animal ID’s must be entered online by 11:59 p.m. on May 15th. If you can not ID online,  paper ID’s can be brought to the Extension Office and must be dropped off by 5:00 p.m. on May 15. If you mail your ID’s to the Extension Office, they must be postmarked by May 15. 

Minnesota 4-H is again using an online livestock ID system in 2017 on 4HOnline.  Please take a few minutes to go to 4HOnline to check your project enrollment to be be sure you are enrolled in all the animal projects you will be participating in.

Ear tags are now available at the Extension office for swine.  They are $2 per ear tags.  Office hours are 8a.m.-5p.m. Monday-Friday.  We are occasionally closed over the lunch hour depending on staff's meetings and classes.  Call ahead if coming over that time frame.
