Missing ear tags?

On occasion livestock ear tags get damaged or lost.  If your beef, sheep, goat or swine end up losing a 4-H ear tag please report this to the Extension Office at the earliest convenience and bring back the old tag for us to keep on record.  Animals will need to be retagged and we will update the livestock identification affidavit online.  It is important to make sure that the animal is still properly identified so that it is eligible for state fair, placings, auction or other awards.

If you have any remaining tags after identification deadline please return them ASAP to the extension office.
