Attention 4-H Beef & Dairy Steer Members!
Beef Identification materials were mailed out to beef members a couple of weeks ago. If you did not receive information in the mail, please contact our office. This year Minnesota will make the shift from paper affidavits to online animal identification.
Minnesota 4-H is using its online enrollment system, 4HOnline, to record all animal identifications in 2014. 4HOnline has the capability to track animal ownership and identification data and has been used successfully in other states. Online animal identification reduces inaccuracies and inefficiencies that were a part of our past paper system. More information and a 4HOnline user guide can be found at www.4-H.umn.edu/animal-ID.
Central identification for market beef and dairy steers will take place on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2014 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Jim and Stacie Mueller Farm, 37277 248th Street, Arlington. 507-964-5890. The snow date is February 9, 2014! All market beef projects MUST be identified on this date. If you cannot make it this date, please call Matt Scharpe at 612-227-0040 or Stacie Mueller at 1-320-583-6841 to set up another time. Remember: ALL Market Beef ID’s are due February 18! The required ear tags will be available on February 2.
